MA-ICM at a glance

During its 17 years of existence the Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin Intercultural Conflict Master's programme has seen many changes, the majority of which developed as the result of observations made by the students themselves in programme evaluations. Changes have also been necessitated by changes in the world around us and are to some extent the results of adaptations and updates required by social and political phenomena.

The Master's programme is currently in a state of considerable reconstruction. Below we describe two of the most important changes.

First, the Master's programme is being extended from three semesters to four. The Master's philosophy demands a close relationship between theory-methodology and practice, for which it is necessary that the students have more time to immerse themselves in and be involved with a specific and concrete social world, in this case Berlin. From the first semester the students begin developing this close relationship between "the classroom" and the social reality of Berlin, a relationship which is necessary for the Master's programme's crucial focus on the methodological approach to action.

The second change relates to cooperation and collaboration with the Benito Juárez Autonomous University of Oaxaca, Mexico, where a "sister" Master's degree is being developed with the Institute of Sociological Research and the Institute of Educational Sciences. This collaboration has been in development since 2014, with the goal of broadening the spectrum of social realities in today's world and thus extending the radius of both study and action across broadly different environments. For the students, in Berlin as well as in Oaxaca, this collaboration will allow mobility and the opportunity to understand different social realities. For more information, please see:
