- Literary Cultures
- Management of the Arts and Culture

The program is organized around theory and practice-based core courses that tackle the main issues in the study of culture. Each seminar provides a broad scope for interdisciplinary interaction through the interplay between disciplines ranging across the fields of Cultural Studies, Literary and Artistic Studies, Performance, Translation, Media and Visual Studies as well as Cultural Management.
The MA in Culture Studies takes into direct consideration the ever-increasing value that the arts and culture represent to the understanding and the identity of nations and individuals, as well as the importance of the creative economy in an era marked by globalization, flux and rapid cultural dissemination.
Based upon an innovative training model and collaborative effort between academic and cultural institutions, the Program operates through epistemological reciprocity, demonstrating how cultural practices illuminate critical reflection.
