Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies

The world is quickly becoming a smaller space. No, it’s not shrinking, but our ability to connect with other people from all walks of life in every country on the globe has grown exponentially. This type of global communication would have been unthinkable to most people even 50 years ago, but today it is a given fact of life. In business, international relations, education, philanthropy, government, and religion, the ability to effectively understand other cultures is paramount to an organization’s success. People who want to have an understanding of complex cultural issues may want to seek a Master of Arts in Intercultural Studies. An M.A. in Intercultural Studies can help prepare students for numerous challenges when dealing with a variety of cultural norms, practices, and beliefs that may not be similar. Graduates of M.A. in Intercultural Studies programs will be well prepared to help their company or organization navigate in foreign or domestic communities that offer multicultural points of view. Upon completion of the program, graduates will have the necessary tools to operate in often challenging environments.
