    Programme Description

    Challenging multilingual and multicultural contexts within modern societies as induced by migration, mobility and globalization call for new expertise and leadership in all areas dealing with relevant educational issues such as research in learning and teaching, educational policies, management of human resources as well as social and cultural development. Taking the Luxembourg context as an example, the MA programme mediates an advanced understanding of socio-cultural issues of learning and development in situations of linguistic and cultural diversity.

    The programme encourages students to develop a scientifically grounded, contextually valid and problem-oriented working attitude preparing them for careers within two strands:

    • The successful completion of the trilingual Master - Learning and Development in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts programme prepares for doctoral programmes in the area of education and (inter-)disciplinary fields related to the study of linguistic and cultural diversity.
    • It also provides a valuable asset for existing and prospective careers beyond the academic world in domains that call for ever more experts with a socio-cultural research background in education and culture, such as teaching-for-learning practices, vocational training and learning, youth and student exchange programmes, journalism and multimedia publishing, group-oriented marketing and advertising as well as linguistic management in public and private areas.
