Master's Programme in Human-Computer Interaction

 

In addition to the continued development of increasingly powerful and portable personal computers, a range of new artefacts is appearing, including car navigation devices and electronic books, adding to a large number of traditional artefacts, such as cameras, phones, washing machines, and fitness equipment, all of which are IT-artefacts which include advanced information processing components.

 

The trend towards the widespread use of IT-artefacts is one of the key aspects of the so-called "digital transformation", a revolutionary transformation of our culture and society that places a heavy emphasis on information and knowledge. This trend gives rise to new phenomena of human interaction with technology and world. Computational capabilities of the interactive things we use every day, combined with powerful new communication, input, and output capabilities, provide great possibilities for human action but also create numerous problems. Realising this potential effectively and efficiently requires that the interaction between people and IT-artefacts becomes an object of study dealing with both people and technology.... [-]

Programme description Child Studies is an interdisciplinary master’s programme that focusses on the critical study of questions related to children and childhood. The programme is mainly taught online, with some short campus periods. The programme can be taken as a one-year master’s degree (60 credits) or a two‑year master’s degree (120 credits). A core focus of the programme is how to apply the latest research findings in order to critically review, develop and improve policies and practices related to children and childhood. The programme further provides the theoretical and methodological tools that prepare students for designing, planning and conducting research in topics that concern children, childhood and families. The programme is hosted by the internationally renowned research department in Child Studies at Linköping University, which has conducted research in child and childhood studies since 1988. The teachers on the programme are active researchers, which guarantees that cutting-edge knowledge is presented in all courses. Broaden and deepen your knowledge The programme comprises one year of full-time studies (60 credits option) or two years (120 credits option). Both years include a research methods course and a master’s thesis course. This means that you can either finish your studies with a one-year master’s degree or continue to take the second year and obtain a two-year master’s degree. During the first term, you will be introduced to the interdisciplinary field of child studies with a special focus on historical, anthropological and sociological perspectives. Each of the three courses introduces you to a methodological approach to child studies. You will learn more about how to design and conduct a research study in child studies during the two courses on methodology (terms 2 and 4), which will prepare you for your master’s theses – one in year one and one in year two. For each thesis you will have an individually appointed thesis supervisor. The remaining courses of the programme are dedicated to various areas in child studies including: children’s rights, parents and the family, education and school, migration, culture, the media, and health. These courses will give you a broad knowledge about the various questions that concern the lives of children, and they will deepen your knowledge of methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives in child studies. Online and on-campus training Most of the courses are taught online with the aid of a digital learning platform. Most of the course literature is also accessible on-line through the electronic resources of the LiU library. This allows for some flexibility as to where and when you conduct your studies.

In addition to online tuition, the programme comprises five campus periods of durations between 2 and 5 days, which are mandatory for all students. The campus periods comprise both academic seminars and social activities, during which students get to know each other and the teachers on the programme.

The programme prepares professionals in the fields of, for example, education, politics, social work and care, who are equipped with cutting-edge knowledge in issues dealing with children and their living conditions. Graduates can also follow a career in research or continue their studies towards doctoral degree. [-]

MA/MSc in Environmental Anthropology

University of Kent, School of Anthropology & Conservation
Campus Part time 1 - 2 years August 2017 United Kingdom Canterbury

Interdisciplinary study into how societies are influenced by the environment & how they manage natural resources and hazards. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Anthropology 2017. Interdisciplinary study into how societies are influenced by the environment & how they manage natural resources and hazards. The Masters programme in Environmental Anthropology aims to offer you the opportunity to acquire advanced knowledge of how different societies are influenced by the environment and manage natural resources and hazards, in relation to issues in human ecology, biodiversity management, sustainable development, environmental change and the practical applications of such knowledge. The aims include ensuring that as a graduate you will have a range of both practical and evaluative skills, and experience of conducting empirical or other applied research, to allow you to pursue work as a researcher or to inform whatever position you take up in the future. It is expected that such work might be undertaken in conjunction with a range of organisations including national or international environmental bodies, governmental departments, and non-governmental organisations. Our Anthropology research degree allows you to specialise in Environmental Anthropology. Doctoral degrees usually require three to four years of preparation, fieldwork and writing. Research students often forge independent linkages with overseas institutions, while many work with the numerous research fellows and staff in several research centres in the department, particularly the new Centre for Biocultural Diversity, and with our various partners, such as the Institute for Ecology in Bandung, Indonesia, the Centre for International Forestry Research in Indonesia, the Global Diversity Foundation. Course Structure The programme is taken over one year full-time, two years part-time. In each academic year there are three terms. Teaching for coursework takes place in the first and second terms. During the third term and the summer period students prepare their dissertation on a topic that reflects their own individual interests and experience. (Please note: All module offerings are subject to change and availability is not guaranteed) Features of the programme We follow an experiential and interactive learning method. We continue to experiment with ways of lecturing, running seminars and workshops, writing exams, designing assignments, supervising students, and evaluating essays and theses, to ensure that students learn by doing and so internalise substantive knowledge as well as the methods used by environmental anthropologists. A typical student will take assessed modules in Environmental Anthropology, Ethnobiological Knowledge Systems, Contemporary Ethnography, Social Anthropology and Research Methods. These modules involve a combination of lectures, seminar discussions and practical laboratories. Additionally students may opt to audit modules taught in DICE (the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology) on conservation biology, nature and tourism and the international wildlife trade. There are also informal workshop series in Practical Methods in Conservation Social Science (jointly held with DICE), cultural domain analysis, research design, and computer applications. There are also field trips to various gardens, zoos and museums in the Kent area, such as the Powell-Cotton Museum, Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, the Eden Project, the Brogdale National Fruit collection and the Aviary at Leeds Castle. Often taking time throughout the whole course to prepare for and carry out, the dissertation project is the culmination of the programme. Students often apply for funding from outside bodies and receive support from the department for overseas studies. They prepare proposals, practice methods, arrange for permits and letters of consent, and often take language classes to prepare for roughly 8 weeks of research between April and July 1st. They then write a 15,000 word dissertation that goes beyond a simple research report to argue a theoretical point and discuss research findings in much wider contexts. Increasingly, students are going on to publish edited versions of these projects, and are making substantive contributions to the research, development or conservation projects they work with. [-]
