The Master's Program provides students with awareness, insights and tools essential in diverse cultural relations and multicultural settings in Norway and abroad. At the end of the program the students should have developed a professional appreciation of international and intercultural challenges in a world experiencing various effects of ongoing globalization. The students may develop intercultural interaction skills and personal cultural sensitivity that will help them be employed in a variety of multicultural settings. International fieldwork, internships and dialogue with organizations and corporations during the studies will enhance the chance for future employment. The multicultural field is expanding in Norway, and students with a Master's Degree in Global Studies will also have opportunities as teachers of different subjects requiring professional global competence.
The objective of the study is to enhance the professional competence (knowledge, skills and attitudes) of students preparing for careers which involve significant international and/or intercultural contact through professional education and research with particular reference to theology, religious studies and intercultural communication. The study can also give students who have already been involved in international or intercultural careers an opportunity to reflect more systematically on their global experience in a scientific and methodological way leading to the attainment of academic credits for their life experiences.
