Master's programme "Learning and Development in Multilingual and
Multicultural Contexts", University of Luxembourg
Registration open for the Academic Year 2009/2010: deadlines and
information sessions

The trilingual MA study programme "Learning and Development in
Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts" was launched in 2007 to offer
an innovative applied research track for investigating issues,
methodologies and theoretical frameworks for dealing with learning and
development in and through multilingualism, multiculturalism and
diversity. Currently, students from more than 30 different nations
from four continents participate in this programme in educational
sciences. Prerequisites are a completed three-year degree (or
equivalent) at a university, the functional mastery of two of the
three academic languages (English, French, German) as well as the
submission of a personalized application file.

Successful candidates for the study programme demonstrate motivation
and interest in individual as well as organisational learning,
development and mediation processes in today's age of diversity,
information management and international mobility. The previous degree
can be earned in a wide range of fields. Applicants have had
backgrounds in educational sciences, computer sciences, applied
linguistics, communication sciences, psychology, organisational
development, business administration, political sciences, marketing
and tourism.

The study programme gives students a unique opportunity to develop
their own profile as learner, actor and innovator in complex, multi-
facetted developmental processes. The four pillars of the study
programme combine and contrast case-based analyses with regard to
media and socio-cultural shaped learning and communication processes,
information brokering and information design, multilingualism and its
integration into the educational landscape, multimodality and
knowledge transfer.

Experts from Luxembourg and abroad hold seminars and thus allow
students to gain broad knowledge about current research trends and
debates in the discussed fields. Furthermore, the academic programme
that can be studied in two (full-time) or four years (part-time)
includes international master classes jointly organised with
complementary study programmes in the United Kingdom, France, Germany
and Switzerland as well as workshops with business partners and
educational institutions. Each student also receives an academic
mentor for the duration of the study programme.

Please refer to the web site of the Master ''Learning and Development
in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts''
 for more information on the application procedure, application
deadlines (30.5. and 28.8. respectively), the study programme as well
