Baltic Sea Region Studies

Periods

Baltic Sea Region Studies - Non Degree programme - Sivuainekokonaisuus

  • The Non Degree studies offer an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the history, societies, and cultures of the region surrounding the Baltic Sea.
  • The Non Degree studies are especially addressed to exchange students and to Finnish degree students as minor studies (sivuaineopinnot). They do not lead to a degree at the University of Turku, but they are complementary studies to be used at the home university at the undergraduate or postgraduate level.
  • The language of instruction is English.

Contents:

  • The programme is a contribution to the constructing a new regional identity within the enlarged European Union. Its focus is on historical and current political, economic and cultural development

in the Baltic Sea Region, national and international co-operation in and among the countries of the region, as well as the region's perspectives in the context of European regionalization and globalization.

  • The fields of study
    The Non Degree program consists of the Introduction module and courses in the fields: History and Culture, Languages and Communication, and Society and Environment. The course list  is revised annually.

Learning outcomes: Students have gained a basic understanding of the history and concepts of region, regionalization, regionalism and region-building from historical, political, geographical, economic and cultural perspectives. They understand how a region is formed and learn about different ways of defining a region.
More specific learning outcomes are specified by each course.

Pre-requisites: preferably two years of university studies and a special interest in the Baltic Sea Area in the fields available.

Course will introduce the processes of regionalization and various phenomena contributing towards region-building in the Baltic Sea region. These processes and phenomena are examined from historical, political, geographical, economic and cultural perspectives. Students are presented with an overall portrayal of the political, economic, social, military and ecological developments in the region from the Viking era to the current day realities. In the context of regionalization, various transnational interactions, cultural transfers, regional commonalities and shared traditions will be discussed. Special emphasis is given to the post-Cold war years as the Golden era of Baltic Sea regionalization.

Aineopinnot [Period III]

The course focuses on intercultural awareness with an emphasis on Nordic/Baltic relations. This course aims at:

1.Defining basic terms that are usually referred to when dealing with intercultural communication: culture, identity, communication, intercultural communication, and intercultural competences;
2. Presenting three scientific approaches to intercultural communication;
3. Helping students to develop tools to analyse situations of communication where national cultures and identities are used as a discursive strategy through the study of various contexts of intercultural encounters: physical and virtual mobilities, foreign language use, business and education;
4. Reflecting on intercultural competences.

Three main scientific fields will be called upon: discourse analysis, the general field of intercultural communication and anthropology/sociology of postmodernity (or how we “communicate in cultures"). The lecturers will discuss case studies of specific intercultural contexts of interest to the students on the BSRS programme. Students will also discuss and analyse perceptions of cultures/identities in groups.

The course will give an outline of the development of urban structure and built environment in Turku from medieval times to the present. Architecture will be understood in a wide sense; not only as a form of art but also as a scene of everyday urban life. The focus will be in the ways local, Baltic, European and global influences have intertwined in the building of Turku. The course will have a chronological structure, but thematic and theoretical threads concerning cultural interaction, nationalism and the role of history in urban life will run through the course. Due to the long period of time that the course will cover, a special attention will be given to the continuities in the material environment.
