Are you a current junior interested in earning an interdisciplinary MA degree with just one year of study beyond your bachelor’s degree?

Join us for an information session on the new accelerated master’s degree program in Transcultural Studies! Learn about the program requirements, what you can study, how to apply, and more.



Tuesday, March 6 at 4pm
Modern Languages Building, Room 2011

Wednesday, March 7 at 4pm

Thursday, March 8 at 4pm
South Thayer Building, Room 6000


This interdisciplinary program is intended to provide both advanced training and a capstone experience for current LSA undergraduates who anticipate pursuing a PhD or working in other professional settings where intercultural competency and a critical framework for thinking systematically about connections, comparisons, and translations among human communities will be desirable skills.

Transcultural Studies uses approaches from across the Humanities and Social Sciences to foster a critical and historically informed understanding of human communication and interaction across perceived boundaries of language, culture, nationality race, and religious identity. The program allows you to earn a UM Master’s Degree with one additional year of study beyond the BA.

Students who are juniors this year are eligible to apply; applications are due April 1. For more information, see the Program in Transcultural Studies website or email
