The joint master's programme in Cultural Differences and Transnational Processes (CREOLE) aims at equipping students with a profound understanding of the connections between local life-worlds and transnational, as well as global, social and cultural processes. On the basis of theories and practical examples, students receive an intensive and specialised education in the three subject areas of a) new identities, b) material culture and consumption, and c) visual culture. These topic areas are covered with regard to transnational processes, cultural diversity/difference and new community constructions.
The degree programme consists of compulsory modules covering the following subject areas: academic methods, history of theory and methods in cultural and social anthropology, and two thematic CREOLE modules. In addition, students have to complete an ERASMUS module, which they can complete either at the University of Vienna or at a university abroad. This is followed by two modules preparing them for their master’s thesis. To successfully complete the programme, students have to write a master’s thesis and pass a master’s examination.
