Cultural studies, i.e. knowledge about culture, is an interdisciplinary and intermedia subject, which teaches tolerance and help one to open themselves to an anthropological way of thinking. The course is very attractive, provides comprehensive education and creates many possibilities. However, this is not a professional course, although there is a professional specialisation available. I contrast to most courses, we do not indicate the path the student is to take after graduation. Cultural studies prepare for playing important social roles: as a leader (artist, critic) and organiser (culture activist, manager) of cultural life, working as a “culture mediator” (an intermediary between ethnically or socially diverse communities), a culture advisor (e.g. space organising, iconosphere arrangement, advertising, PR) in institutions of culture and education, regional culture and administration centres and as a freelancer.
