The curriculum is structured so that students consistently acquire theoretical knowledge while learning and applying related skills. The strong focus on skill training in combination with a thorough discussion of the effects of culture and intercultural contact on three levels of analysis (individual, intragroup, and intergroup), makes this master unique and opens up a broad range of employment sectors including:
- Research institutions (e.g., conducting cross-cultural research among ethnic minorities).
- International companies or organizations (e.g., providing culturally fair assessments, training intercultural competence, managing diversity).
- The educational sector (e.g., multicultural education).
- Non-governmental/non-profit organizations (e.g., developing, monitoring, and evaluating culturally sensitive interventions).
- Municipalities or governmental organizations (e.g., advising on migration-related issues).
- Mental health sector (e.g., as intercultural coach, counselor, or therapist).
