Accelerated Master's Degree Program in Transcultural Studies
The AMDP in Transcultural Studies offers accomplished and ambitious undergraduates in LSA the opportunity to earn an interdisciplinary M.A. degree with just one year of study beyond their B.A. The program is grounded in recent scholarship from humanities and social sciences disciplines that examines the flows of people, things, ideas, and practices across perceived cultural divides. It encourages students to explore methods for understanding connectivity, comparison, and translation across cultures with a curriculum that draws on courses in eleven of LSA’s exceptionally strong humanities and social sciences departments. The program provides its students with a robust framework for thinking critically about transcultural dynamics and for negotiating them with insight and imagination in their own lives and careers.
