Social sciences focus on the study of social relationships and human society. Courses within social science prepare students for a wide number of careers that deal with people or systems in public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

Argentina is the heart of higher education especially from their research oriented curriculum. This has enabled students to get practical knowledge and skills but also enhanced practical knowledge application. This has helped the scholars to give solutions to the country’s problems.

Buenos Aires is home to key literary figures. This may be as a result of the city’s many private and public learning institutions such the Salvador University and University of Buenos Aires.

THE COURSE

Spiritual geography of America exhibits a rich and deep, extraordinary density both for the variety of its original components as the results of their merger. That is why, if I had to highlight just one among the many features of such a profile it should be undoubtedly miscegenation: mixture of races, languages, mythologies; mixing of religions, philosophies, political systems, economic practices, social orders; mix of scientific and esoteric knowledge, technologies, gastronomy, arts and letters, architectures. Miscegenation of cultures.

This is an introductory course in art and architecture, especially designed for students from other academic areas so it is not necessary to have previous knowledge on the subject. In each class will try to learn to "read" the works and to understand through analysis behind what we see: how the work was generated, in that context was thought, what ideas represents, what is the personal story of its author and much more....

Course in Corporate Social Responsibility

Study location: Buenos Aires, Argentina Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a field of research that offers opportunities for companies to improve their business by engaging responsibly with the natural and social environment. Kulturstudier offers three different CSR courses, level 1,2 and 3. You can combine all three in one semester, or mix CSR with studies in Spanish or philosophy. The courses are offered in cooperation with Universidad Nacional de San Martin.

What is CSR

CSR is a business opportunity that allows companies to improve their corporate reputation and to establish, develop and enhance their market share. The concept implies that corporations commit to improve the society and protect the environment, beyond obeying the national and international legal obligations and without detracting from the economic purpose of the enterprise or impairing its competitiveness. The great majority of multinational companies today recognise the public demand for accountability for the social and environmental impact of the company. They can learn to see the economic benefit of extending their scope from short term profit, to long term sustainable growth. CSR training is in high demand. Not least with corporations establishing in countries where the laws of governments do not sufficiently protect nature and people. These courses can enable you to play a part. ... [-]
