Introduction of Studies Cultural Studies

Cultural Studies

Learning about cultures and the origins of creative thinking.

Our world has many different cultures that draw on regional characteristics as well as the histories of various groups of people. Cultural studies examine the different cultures of countries, regions, and peoples and compare them through research. Research involves study from various viewpoints that cover the many components of any culture, such as language, philosophy, religion, literature, arts, morals, sociology, and folklore. The most notable characteristic of cultural studies is that it covers a wide academic breadth that combines knowledge and concepts from many fields. This means that unique kinds of research that could not be carried out in other fields of study can be pursued. Going forward, in our society, the understanding of the cultures of other countries, comparative culture theory, and international relations theory will become more and more important. Cultural and liberal arts studies from viewpoints such as these are expected to have large ramifications in fields of international research.
