Goal of the pro­gramme

Global Politics and Communication is an interdisciplinary and innovative Master’s degree programme that addresses the key challenges of globalisation from the perspective of media and communication studies, organisation research and global political economy. The programme emphasises developing your critical thinking, a necessary skill in many careers.

The specific objectives of the programme include:

  • Providing you with advanced knowledge of global political economy, relationships between the media and the development of democracy, and linkages between governance, organisations and communication
  • Empowering you to assess how politics and the media are linked to the forces of globalisation
  • Equipping you with conceptual understanding and the theoretical and methodological skills needed to carry out original and relevant research on key societal issues
  • Preparing you to engage in public discussions and develop critical reasoning and argumentation skills that are equally important in academia, public organisations and the private sector

Further information about the studies on the Master's programme website.

Programme contents

How do global transformations affect democratic politics? What is the role of the media in the transformation of contemporary democracies? Why do economic activities result in global and national financial crises and inequality instead of in stability and democratisation? How does governance affect organisations and communication, and how do governance and organisations structure communication and political and economic activity?

The Global Politics and Communication programme offers a cutting-edge combination of political science, communication studies and global political economy. You will apply ideas, concepts and methodologies to key societal and political issues such as the changing character of democracy, the role of organisations and governance in the globalising world, and the regulation of global finance and trade.

During the first year, you will study general theoretical and methodological courses and take part in thematic courses offered by the programme’s study tracks. In the second year, you will deepen your knowledge on your selected study track or study tracks by participating in thematic specialization courses. You will also attend the Master’s seminar and write your Master’s thesis.

Goal of the programme

When studying in the Master’s Programme in Intercultural Encounters (ICE), you will acquire critical knowledge and skills to examine complex social and cultural phenomena as applied to your thematic specialisation. You will gain a profound understanding on how micro- or macro-level phenomena interact in local, international, multicultural and transnational contexts. You will learn to analyse why and how conflicts arise for various cultural, political and religious reasons, and you will gain insights into the possibilities of dialogue in conflict resolution. In addition, you will learn to communicate and evaluate information on intercultural encounters in different academic, professional and societal contexts.

Upon completing the Master’s programme, you will be able to pursue a national and international career. You will be able to act and grow in multidisciplinary and multicultural groups, and deal with issues of intercultural interaction, diversity, internationalisation, cultural management, media and power.

The programme provides:

  • profound knowledge of intercultural encounters, including thematic specialisation;
  • the ability to conduct research and apply scholarly knowledge and scientific methods;
  • eligibility for postgraduate research;
  • awareness of intercultural competence.

Pro­gramme con­tents

The Master’s Programme in Intercultural Encounters offers a multidisciplinary approach to intercultural issues, and aims to foster in the students an appreciation of the many facets of intercultural contact. The teaching in the programme supports this by making use of a range of pedagogical approaches to interculturalism.

The ICE Programme offers courses grounded in the latest academic research, which enables students to apply their theoretical grasp to practical situations in a multicultural and internationally oriented working life.

The thematic module on Religion, Conflict and Dialogue prepares students for critical analyses of the role of religion in conflicts in local, national and global contexts. Students will also develop expertise in conflict resolution and reconciliation projects involving religious issues, and gain an understanding of the requirements of such work.

The thematic module on Tradition, Knowledge and Change offers an opportunity to obtain knowledge of epistemological differences in a decolonising perspective. Student’s expertise will extend to indigenous peoples’ philosophies and concepts, with new insights into knowledge-making, power relations and diverse interactions in the production of tradition.

The thematic module of Communication and Media focuses on practical intercultural communication situations and processes, as well as on cultural beliefs and values present and produced in communication and social relationships. Students will also learn to analyse relationships between culture, media and power both in traditional mass media and present-day Internet and social media.

The thematic module on Transnational and International examines strengthened interconnectivity and relations between people transcending the borders. Particular attention is given to transnational actors and activities which impact on culture and politics across traditional borders. These include non-governmental organisations, multinational corporations, religious actors, ethnic actors, terrorism, migration, hybrid identities and diasporas. You will also learn more about the culture and practice of diplomatic relations.

Students can specialise in different local, national and supranational cultures in, for example, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, or North America. Also, the perspectives of the study of religions, theology, communication and indigenous studies provide students with the regional, cultural, and socio-political knowledge, which will help create a theoretical framework for understanding the dynamics of intercultural encounters. Furthermore, a range of disciplines at the University of Helsinki supports the study of the ICE thematic modules, such as media, social psychology, and area and cultural studies.
