Learning about the dynamism of contemporary cultures with a focus on tomorrow

The modern civilizations of the 19th and 20th centuries have formed our contemporary culture. During this time the world has witnessed dramatic developments in transport, industry and information technology, as well as growing regional cultural exchange around the globe. We are now in an era where multicultural perspectives have given way to mutual understanding, which has led to increases in travel and tourism, richer experiences and global sports and other events that foster cultural exchange. In the Faculty of Contemporary Cultural Studies students learn about the dynamism of contemporary cultures, studying towards the future in the fields of ‘Comparative Culture’, ‘Tourism and Hospitality’, ‘Sports Culture’ and ‘Sports Career’.

Thinking about the purpose of life in modern times.

What does it mean to live a genuine life? What is it that people live for? What do we have to do in order to live a better life? We are standing at the threshold of becoming a global society that no longer experiences high-speed growth and this is already demanding a large shift in our sense of values. The Faculty of Contemporary Culture is a forward-thinking faculty that makes students think about propositions that can no longer be avoided, that in the past we didn’t have time to think about and that seemed self explanatory.

Living with diversity

The development of infrastructure, communication and publication in modern times has led to higher exposure of, and increased exchange between cultures. This has however, simultaneously led to the issue of how to protect and preserve the richness of our diverse cultures. In addition, the infiltration of sports into our daily lives means we also have to now deal with overcoming both physical and psychological issues. The Faculty of Contemporary Cultural Studies is made up of 4 courses that explore these problems and issues.

Students study in small teacher-centered seminar-type classes, as well as large lecture classes.
