Guest lectures and social activities
The vast variety of research areas within the Department of Cross-Cultural and Regional Studies provides great opportunities for interesting debates and extra-curricular lectures.
The department often holds meetings with guest lectures by international researchers or people with a special knowledge or insight in one of the areas studied at the department. These meetings are often held in English.
When it comes to social activities, the department has a lot to offer. For instance, each section has its own café run by students. The cafés serve beer, drinks and soft drinks and are open from the afternoon to late night on either Thursdays or Fridays (depending on the section). In the cafés students meet for a drink, a dance, a talk with friends and fellow students or a game of table football.
Each section also has its own party committee arranging 3 or 4 parties each semester. When one section holds a party, the rest of the department’s students are invited and between 100 and 200 students usually turn up.
