The study of cultural studies can be just as confusing as the culture is sometimes.
Unlike scientific subjects, the scope of these sciences can hardly be limited.
Definitionality of culture
Even the question of what culture is in the first place becomes a major challenge, since the term can be understood in many different ways; as a specific cultural peculiarity of an ethnic or linguistic group, as a civilizational achievement or as regards art such as literature, painting, theater or music.
To make matters worse, the theoretical literature, which belongs to a cultural studies, is anything but easy to digest.
The overview is quickly lost when it comes to postmodernist, constructivist, culture pessimistic or literary criticism issues, when the texts have a linguistic hypercreativity that seems to lack any real basis, when sentences slide into barely resolved or translatable monstrosities and in a variety lose from pop cultural intimations.
The cultural sciences are a discipline that encompasses numerous fields of science – from history, through language to philosophy, to media and communication sciences, and last but not least to psychology, no area seems safe from access by cultural studies.
Students who are dedicated to this difficult task will certainly gain a broad general education and can thus pursue a variety of career prospects.
Nevertheless, problems sometimes arise during the course of study, especially when writing scientific papers, which not only look at the content and literature, but also at the adherence to the formalities.
To overcome these hurdles, academic ghostwriters are sometimes called upon to unambiguously summarize incomprehensible books, to help create a meaningful structure, or to produce original texts on the basis of which one’s own work can be written.
