The Postgraduate Program Cultural Analysis and Education of the Department of Philosophy and Social Studies aims to provide qualified human resources for the growing interdisciplinary field of Cultural Analysis, with excellent prospects towards enriching the students’ professional careers. The program is based on the interdisciplinary collaboration of the Social Sciences (Sociology, Social Anthropology, Psychology, Education Sciences) and Philosophy. Cultural analysis is the common theoretical and methodological ground that provides the opportunity for interdisciplinary specializations, where the complexities of social life are examined from a variety of complementary perspectives, as it is structured around three interrelated fields of research:

  1. Research methodology in cultural analysis.
  2. Analysis of cultural processes of everyday life and social change: human development, cultural diversity, multiculturalism, digital communication, emotions, identity, gender and cultural social movements.
  3. Educational practices and transformations in education.

Graduates of the Program, apart from those who are employed in the field of education and look to enrich their training and knowledge, will be able to solve problems of cultural practices and communication in companies, public institutions, cultural institutions and museums, NGOs and healthcare systems, and/or benefit from their employment in public planning, tourism, marketing and market analysis and communication, or in the media.
