Skills of the Graduate
The acquired skills of the graduate enable him or her to apply to public institutions at the state and local government level, to non-profit and charitable organizations, to the media, as well as cultural and educational facilities. Graduates are able to work in the field of prevention, leisure activities and in other positions on which is placed a request for dialogue across boundaries of ethnicity, religion, race, sex or social class. In conjunction perhaps with a master’s education, and trained in other disciplines, he or she is enabled thereby to also take into account further educational activities and fulfill the cross-bordering theme of multicultural education. Even during the period of bachelor’s degree study in this field the student will be in a position to obtain at least a modicum of experience in organizations that offer potential applications for professionals in transcultural communication, both from the public and voluntary sector (e.g. People in Need, Multicultural Centre Prague, ADRA, Promotion Center integration of foreigners, and Caritas Czech Republic, and most Human Rights ).
Students also acquire competence in management and how to self- organize publicly accessible, professionally oriented events. This preparation provides graduates with the important skills necessary for the preparation and production of educational and awareness activities in their own field of expertise. For a master’s degree the best focus upon cultural and intercultural studies, cultural studies, international relations, cultural and social anthropology, development studies, sociology, political science, psychology, gender studies, media studies and/or other educational training in fields such as social sciences and history. The first graduates of 2013 were 85% successful in their entrance exams to master study fields.
Van Anh Nguyen-Sap, 2020 graduate
/Transcultural Communication studies in English language/
In 2017, from Vietnam, I came to study at University of Hradec Kralove. My three years at the university have been excellent and a memory to cherish for a lifetime.
I want to give thanks to my inspiring professors who always provided me with the assistance that I required for my overall development and to improve my knowledge. I will always be grateful to them for providing me a platform of practical learning and preparing me for the corporate life.
Now, I am working in HR department in an international company in Prague. I believe that what I have obtained during the time at the university facilitates my career development. I know that making decision to study Transcultural Communication in University of Hradec Kralove is the right choice!

Student internship tutor, People in Need, Prague
The students of Transcultural Communication complete their internships in our organization for several years already. It is clear that they are interested in what we do, especially in our educational activities. Some of the interns continue to collaborate with us even though their official internship is over. They take part in the activities related to global development education, intercultural education and media communication of the migration department. Through interaction with our employees, they often manage to clarify their own ideas about their future work and factors that are important for their professional decisions. We are happy that this cooperation is going on and we hope the students will be enriched by it.
Mgr. Marek Čaněk, Ph.D., Multicultural Center Prague
I know the study programme of Transcultural Communication through interaction with students who come to our organization as interns and participate at least for a short period of time in our educational activities. Some of them have stayed in touch even after the internship had ended. One of the graduates is now working with us on a series of evening lectures on migration – People’s School of Migration. The importance of the study programme of TC is becoming ever more obvious these days, as the discussion about accepting refugees, inclusion of migrants or Islam is getting more and more urgent. We need study programmes that critically analyze what culture and identity is, how to understand migration regulation from an anthropological perspective, and at the same time are practically oriented.
