Cross-Cultural Studies Program


The Master's Degree program in Cross-Cultural Studies is designed for students interested in developing knowledge and a skill set appropriate to working in cross-cultural environments. The program at its core focuses on understanding cultural dynamics, appreciating cultural diversity, and negotiating differences between cultures and societies with the goal of bridging these differences.

The program integrates several unique emphases to create a comprehensive, inter-disciplinary learning experience focused on understanding diversity:

  1. Conflict resolution and mediation: courses which provide skills to apply in a number of cross-cultural institutional environments, whether corporate, religious, legal, educational, grassroots, nonprofit, or international non-governmental organizations;

  2. Regional and area studies: concentrated courses on Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America, which emphasize global perspectives;

  3. Inter-disciplinarity: courses in Anthropology, History, Literature, Psychology, Sociology, and Geography which offer different disciplinary approaches to the study of cultural diversity, and which together make Cross-Cultural studies a uniquely inter-disciplinary degree program;

  4. A capstone experience that is either practically oriented in an Internship or focused on conducting original and/or empirical research in either a Thesis or a Project.
