Culture of Unity
The interdisciplinary degree programme in Culture of Unity is open to students from all disciplinary backgrounds. It aims to respond to a growing demand in the modern job market, namely the need to train professionals who are able to enter into dialogue and integrate with experts from other fields. The programme offers some useful cultural tools to prepare students for the challenges of today’s world in an interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary perspective, and gives them the skills they need to work with specialists from a variety of fields to find innovative solutions.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
The programme comprises some core modules covering the foundations of a Culture of Unity, and a list of optional modules students can choose from under the supervision of a tutor. Those modules are specific to the fields of knowledge to which a Culture of Unity can be applied in present day society. The course encourages students to develop an attitude of care and respect for diversity in its multiple cultural and historical expressions, which will be analysed within a comprehensive and unitary reference framework.

Professional Outlook

The specialization, totally integrative with every other academic degree acquired in other institutions of higher learning, compliments previous studies and prepares students to practice their professions with the acquisition of specific intercultural, interdisciplinary and team leadership skills, qualities that are increasingly in demand for educators, communication experts, administrators or public sector leaders, environmentalists, development and social service professionals, etc.

Academic Opportunities

Also the academic world is demanding a professionalism capable of expressing a broad education open to inter-disciplinary dialogue.
Whoever completes the Culture of Unity interdisciplinary program can direct themselves more effectively to teaching and research in their previous area of studies or in other related areas.   S/he is especially adept at assuming responsibilities of consultancy, of leadership and coordination, specific to the academic world.
