These traditional humanistic university subjects pose central questions about the world around us and the human condition such as: Where do we come from? Who are we? And where are we going?
A Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies and Languages can be useful in many jobs that require: cultural and intercultural understanding, knowledge of English, independence of thought, critical analysis, combined with knowledge of our society from historical times until the present day.
A Bachelor’s degree also qualifies a student for entry into a Master programme. In connection to this, the Department of Cultural Studies and Languages offers Master studies in Literacy (Norwegian and English) and History didactics. In addition a Bachelor’s degree also qualifies a student to take courses in Educational theory and practice (PPU), a postgraduate certificate in education (1 year full-time or 2 years part-time) which provides a formal teaching qualification for graduates.
The Department of Cultural Studies and Languages is located within the campus of the University of Stavanger in Hulda Garborg’s house.
