Dear students,

Rapid and ongoing changes in culture and science require constant personal and professional adapting and development. A definition of a modern educated individual is a multi-talented, cross-culturally sensitive professional able to work, develop and contribute in multicultural environments. The film industry, media, diplomacy, cultural and tourism entrepreneurship, translation, writing, art, literature, and theatre are many areas that blend and complement each other, opening new areas of cross-disciplinary collaboration between arts, social sciences, and humanities.
