Master's degree

 

The master's field which this study programme belongs to is Philology. The duration of studies is 2 years (120 ECTS credits). The Cultural Innovation programme is oriented both towards humanistic research and towards the area of literary and cultural creativity. It is based on the specifics of the Faculty of Letters in Brașov, with academics who are both writers and cultural managers. These complementary competencies of experienced professors foster both the scientific area and the one related to literary and cultural creativity, in a broad sense.

The programme has a very solid practical component as it relies on the acquisition of skills “in action”. Master’s students are taught not only how to draft a cultural project, how to create or translate a text (in different genres), but also how to create and complete a product, with all the items that make it up.

 

Perspectives after graduation: employees in public and private institutions in the cultural field or with cultural components; creative industries; the publishing market; editorial offices of newspapers, magazines, radio, television that also cover the cultural area; non-governmental organizations, film studios, theatres; teachers for high school education, etc.

 

Curriculum

Syllabus

Subsumed to the field of Philology, Language Studies for Intercultural Communication (in English) is a master's degree research programme conducted exclusively in English over two years (4 semesters, 120 ECTS). The disciplines in the composition of the curriculum are oriented towards the study, from a macrolinguistic perspective, of a complex of phenomena associated with communication in and between different ethnic and professional communities. What are the variables of intercultural communication situations? How can they be systematically investigated? What forms does the transfer of meanings and messages take from one linguistic community to another? These are some of the issues approached in this programme. Teaching and learning are based on heuristic methods that involve the students’ involvement in individual and team activities and projects, solving concrete communication problems, as well as creating opportunities for the implementation of discovered information. The priority is to train specialists capable of identifying cultural variations in real time and interpreting them in the spirit of cultural and linguistic relativism in order to successfully interact in different cultural contexts and communication situations.
