You will develop advanced research skills to help you design, interpret and critically evaluate data and findings, culminating in the completion of a research project of your own.

Course content

You will learn to investigate social and cultural differences and transformations in the contemporary world and the international world of work, and you will develop an insight into the effect of social media on societies.

You'll be based in a department with a reputation for cutting-edge research, with access to two innovative research centres, CURB (Centre for Urban Research) and ECCE (European Centre for Cultural Exploration), both of which provide opportunities to connect with researchers and students in other parts of the world to share experiences and explore findings.

You will study four core modules:
-Culture, Society and Globalisation 1: Theories and Developments
-Culture, Society and Globalisation 2: Inequalities and Practices

Global Communication is a new, fully English-taught Master's specialization within the Master's program Culture Studies.

Modern life is seriously affected by globalization. Between cradle and grave you encounter thousands of situations in which you interact with people who do not share the same background as you. We are more mobile, fewer of us stay in the same place for all or most of our lives and our everyday contacts span many different social groups. In addition, the internet gives us unlimited access to people and information and enables us to communicate without being constrained by time and place. These aspects of globalization have made societies ‘superdiverse’.
Living in a superdiverse world requires a flexible and expansive communicative repertoire. You need to be sensitive to variation in communicative behavior across social groups and across different settings, including offline and online modes of communication.

In the Master’s specialization Global Communication the aim is to understand the communicative challenges of life in times of globalization and superdiversity. This entails knowing about the phenomena to which globalization gives rise, knowing about how people acquire and use the communicative skills one needs to succeed, knowing what roles education and policy making plays in this, and knowing about how all this contact between cultures or sub-cultures affects the people it concerns.

Career perspective Global Communication

Global Communication prepares you for a career in today’s global, digital and cultural diverse society.

More specific, our alumni work as:
•PR coordinator
•Public communications specialist
•(Web)editor
•Communications coordinator

Educational Post-Master

Moreover, Dutch graduates have the possibility to follow a one year educational post-master to become a teacher.

Read more
The aim of the Master's program Management of Cultural Diversity at Tilburg University is:
First, to equip students with the necessary expertise, tools and skills to analyze cases of cultural diversity in organizations and societal fields like education, health care, labor market and arts and culture.
Second, based on such an analysis they will be able to design management interventions to neutralize the risks and to take advantage of the opportunities stemming from cultural diversity.

A master's program about the impact of globalization and intercultural communication:
Globalization means movement. People, images, symbols, information, capital, goods and so on increasingly move from one corner of the world to another and people communicate with other people many miles away. As a consequence, individual people are increasingly being confronted with (all kinds of) different influences and ideas from other parts of the world.

About collaboration between people with different cultural backgrounds and world views:
Global communication media like the internet and means of rapid transportation facilitate such encounters. The same holds true for multinational organizations that expand globally and thus incorporate people with all kinds of cultural orientations in their workforce.
Organizations and societal fields such as the labor market, education, health care and arts and culture are increasingly made up of employees and citizens with different identities and have to deal with customers and citizens with diverse orientations and world views.

Numerous questions are raised in this multicultural, multinational framework, such as:
•What does it mean to a hospital when patients with various religious beliefs need tailor-made care?
•How are production and service delivery affected when people from all parts of the world come together to communicate and work in a company?
•What are the consequences when citizens representing different identities, traditions, languages and beliefs send their children to mixed schools?
•Do people with different ethnic backgrounds get equal opportunities in the labor market?

Cultural diversity entails both risks and opportunities
•Risks: think of miscommunication, conflict and exclusion.
•Opportunities: think of innovating ideas, creativity and renewal of production and service delivery.

Consequently, there is need for management, policy and intervention to deal with these risks and opportunities, i.e. to neutralize the risks and take advantage of the opportunities presented by cultural diversity.

Do you want to identify these issues and provide management and policy solutions?
There are as yet no management and policy solutions available. New answers need to be developed in each specific case, place, organization or field based on a sound understanding of the issues involved at that moment and in that particular context.
Tilburg University is well-positioned to offer such a program. It has at its disposal of high-level and internationally oriented expertise in the various relevant academic fields, embodied by teaching staff firmly embedded in and intellectually nourished by relevant research programs.

Career Perspective Management of Cultural Diversity

The program offers a Master’s career to prepare students for jobs focusing on management and policy intervention regarding cultural diversity in organizations and societal fields. The program will have an explicit international orientation so students are expected to find a place on the labor market in a variety of countries in Europe and beyond. Your work will either focus on management of a culturally diverse workforce within companies and organizations (profit and non-profit) or you will be working on policy development and implementation regarding issues of cultural diversity in society within governmental organizations or NGOs.

Looking around the world today, it is clear that religion plays a role in many of the major conflicts going on at various levels. Furthermore religion plays an important role in people's lives worldwide, and has become one of the major ways people connect with each other across the globe. However, the persistence and prominence of the role of religion in contemporary societies is still not sufficiently understood in academic research and in the work of policy-makers, NGO's and journalists.

This master's track addresses the pivotal place of religion in the dynamics of globalization and conflict that shape present-day societies. The programme is interdisciplinary, examining political, social, psychological and cultural dimensions. You will learn to:

• investigate the consequences of globalization for religious practices and individual, ethnic and national identities
• understand the relationship between religion, conflict and peace-building
• analyse national and international conflicts, and learn how they are interwoven with religious interests and opinions

You can specialize in either conflict and peacebuilding, migration or gender
