The European Commission Distinguishes a Study Programme of the University of Nova Gorica as an Example of Good Practice
A group of experts from the Department for Education, Youth, Sports and Culture of the European Commission has chosen the international Master’s degree study programme “Migration and Intercultural Communication” provided by the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Nova Gorica as an example of good practice based on the assessment of its quality, innovation and excellent results.
The study programme “Migration and Intercultural Communication” is the result of the cooperation of the Faculty of Humanities (University of New Gorica) with the European and African universities under the auspices of the University of Oldenburg (Germany). It was launched in 2011/2012 academic year with the support of Erasmus Mundus—an elite programme of international cooperation and exchange of students and teachers in the field of higher education. Participants of the programme are the University of Nova Gorica, the University of Oldenburg (Germany), the University of Stavanger (Norway), the South Bohemian University (Czech Republic), the Women’s University of Akhfad (Sudan), the University of Science and Technology of Mbarara (Uganda), and the University of Wits (South Africa).
The European Commission has distinguished this study programme, first of all, based on its interdisciplinary and intercultural perspective. The programme focuses on human rights, democratic values, the welfare state, and labour market problems faced by both the EU Member States and the whole world.
The study programme “Migration and Intercultural Communication” is provided by the Faculty of Humanities. This year, the faculty has also launched two Bachelor’s degree study programmes: Slovene Linguistics and History of Culture, as well as four Master’s degree study programmes: Slovene Linguistics (with majors in Philology and Literary Studies), the pedagogical study programme “Slovene Linguistics” and the programme “Migration and Intercultural Communication.”
In the 2018/2019 academic year, the University of Nova Gorica also announces the interdisciplinary Master’s degree programme “Digital Humanistic Studies”, which is opened by the Faculty of Humanities in cooperation with the Faculty of Business and Technology in subjects relating to informatics and computer science, and also with the Academy of Arts that will teach subjects related to the planning of visual and multimedia communications.
