Intercultural understanding

Vidareutdanning (bachelornivå)

The objectives of this course are to provide the students with knowledge and understanding of cultural and religious plurality in Norwegian and international contexts.

Cultural plurality raises both theoretical and practical challenges, and the teachings will address both these aspects. On the one hand, cultural plurality has a practical side in how we create and organize human relations face to face, and also in policy making. On the other hand, knowledge and frames of interpretation developed in the human and social sciences (cultural studies, anthropology, sociology, theology, religious studies, philosophy) provides us with insights into different ways cultural plurality can be conceptualized and interpreted.

The pedagogical approach to the topic is student-active learning, with case studies and personal accounts playing a central role.
