As a student of the Intercultural Studies programme from Aarhus University, this understanding forms the basis of your studies of virtually all cultural phenomena and historical circumstances. Encounters between cultures and the consequent intercultural conduct and interplay are the focal points of the programme.


The Intercultural Studies programme from Aarhus University focuses on developing your ability to navigate and act practically and theoretically based on the cultural, internationalised landscape with a view to communicating with the international partners of your organisation, identifying opportunities for development and challenges, and initiating projects and opening up new paths.

Intercultural Studies is a new educational concept which provides students with the competences needed to function in and analyse various intercultural contexts as well as improving their foreign-language skills. This is the only degree programme that you can study in both English and another language (German, French or Spanish). You can also choose to follow the entire programme in English. In the courses conducted in English, you will be working with students from all the other language tracks on the programme, while area-specific courses are conducted in their specified language. This means that classes vary in size. Consequently, the working methods vary a great deal as well.


The programme aims to qualify graduates for employment in the international job market in general, meaning private and public organisations that have international relations, departments or activities in which good intercultural understanding, a sense of how to manage processes and projects and strong language skills are needed.
