Master's Programme in Applied Cultural Analysis

Master's Programme in Applied Cultural Analysis

The programme aims to develop and deepen students’ knowledge and skills within the field of applied cultural analysis. It emphasises the use of ethnography and cultural analysis as a means of helping organisations and businesses to develop their services and products as well as finding solutions to problems they may face as an aspect of their daily activities. The programme will strengthen students’ theoretical and methodological skills in ethnography while developing advanced understanding of different organisational contexts, as well as the demands these place on project management, communications and product development.

Via internships practice, projects and the Master thesis, you will be able to develop and target your skills to the specialised field in which you wish to work after completing your studies.
