Discover the importance of culture and heritage

What is culture? How does it develop? How is it affected by diversity and heritage? Get answers with this program of flexible courses that covers everything from European identities to the impact of diversity on cities, to how cultures can become brands.

You will examine the concept of 'culture' by exploring practices, at local, national and transnational level. You will also work on case studies to illustrate how culture and cultural diversity more specifically can offer innovative solutions to many challenges.
