Standards of Decision-Making Across Cultures (SDAC) is an interdisciplinary study programme in cultural studies with an emphasis on East Asian societies. It allows the students to acquire profound academic and methodological knowledge, as well as additional key skills regarding decision-making processes in East Asia.
The MA degree program requires a BA degree of variable disciplinary orientation. This non-consecutive Master’s program draws from the fields of anthropology, philosophy, political science, economics, history, and Chinese studies. In addition to core courses, students have the possibility to further shape their curriculum around linguistic-cultural, comparative-philosophical, or economical & political academic focuses.
