Why Study Cultural Studies ?
Knowledge of diverse cultures and communities, including one’s own culture, is no longer specific to the field of anthropology. The 21st century professions rely on cross-cultural communication and intercultural competence.
The Cultural Studies Program from the International University of Sarajevo encourages students to employ a range of research methods in the pursuit of knowledge and fosters field work, as well as community engagement. Moreover, students develop a sense of ethics and civic engagement in addition to their scholarly research.
Cultural Studies students learn how to examine and critically think on social, political and cultural issues improving the social cohesion in their own cultural environment. Cultural Studies department offers the courses related to aesthetics, film and performing arts theory.
Culture and folklore are compared and contrasted referring to the globally popular film genres and themes such as through the courses Vampire Cinema or Disney Culture Basics.
Cultural specifics of cinema and performing arts reflect the specific critical perspectives of the wide range of disciplines that are to be introduced and analyzed such as literary theory, ideology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, religion, folklore, suburban and pop culture, among others.
Our location in the heart of Europe, in the city of Sarajevo, a region celebrated for its multi-religious and multi-cultural character, provides a rich field for social and cultural research. Our graduate students have the opportunity to conduct critical and original research, including investigating matters of identity, power politics and representation.
