Overview

In a global society we meet people from different cultures and social backgrounds in a variety of contexts, challenging the ways we communicate with one another. Communication is for example crucial when encountering different nationals in a business meeting or when integrating migrants in the local community.

The Master in Communication Studies and Cultural Encounters at Roskilde University  provides a broad basis to engage with the planning and development of communication material and communicative processes for a variety of purposes: cross-national and cross-cultural collaborations, newsmaking and the dissemination of culture, as well as for the development of organisations and employees.
