Best Masters in Humanities and Social Sciences in Denmark 2017. INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF GLOBALISATION In our increasingly interdependent world, cultural differences shape the everyday life of individuals as well as large corporations. These cultural and linguistic boundaries demand new skills to manage the deterritorialisation of culture, the transnational mobility of both humans and streams of information, and increased interconnectivity through the internet and social media. The new Intercultural Studies programme offers these skills. The programme prepares students to analyse various different contexts and engage in entrepreneurial activity using their foreign-language skills. Students can choose between five different tracks: Intercultural Studies (English) Intercultural Studies (French) Intercultural Studies (German) Intercultural Studies (Latin America) Intercultural Studies (Spanish and Spanish America) STUDY PROFILE The programme will develop students’ knowledge and skills in languages, intercultural communication and competence, and cultural understanding from the perspective of globalisation. Furthermore, the programme contains elements of project management, including the opportunity for a one-semester internship. Students will study key contemporary themes from a historical perspective within the fields of culture, language and society. The working methods include the study of real-life cases and project-oriented group work. STUDENT LIFE The Faculty of Arts and Aarhus University as a whole organise many events for students including lectures, student fairs, career days, seminars, celebrations and sports days. CAREERS Graduates of the programme are highly valued for their strong intercultural competencies and multilingual projects and processes by both private and public organisations in the international job market. “Do you wonder how the refugee crises and transnational conflicts influence identity constructions nationally as well as at a global level? Do you want to understand how today’s ideological and political arguments draw on past conflicts, and what kind of impact they have? Are you eager to understand how film, visual art and literature help us negotiate our cultural identities and shape our cultural imagination? And do you want to be able to work professionally with intercultural issues in English, French, Spanish or German? If you do, Intercultural Studies is your choice.” HANS LAUGE HANSEN Professor, Department of Communication and Culture/Spanish [-]

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. The programme has high academic standards, however, and requires full-time study. 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. This will facilitate online communication throughout the rest of the programme. Career opportunities Student of the master’s programme in Child Studies will be prepared for a career within governmental authorities and companies as well as local organisations, both governmental and non-governmental, whose activities affect children and their living conditions. 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. [-]

You will learn how to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures. Students taking the programme usually have a wide range of educational and professional backgrounds, for example in sociology, teaching, psychology, political science, and business administration. The programme provides you with knowledge of theories and methodologies in gender studies – intersectionality and change, and enables you to develop academic skills to analyse and to intervene innovatively and professionally in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society. A key ambition is to offer opportunities to reflect on and develop an understanding of the links between activism, theory, professional development and career paths. Online and on-campus gatherings The programme combines online distance education with intensive mandatory on-campus gatherings. You will interact with your teachers and fellow programme members via a digital classroom. Three mandatory on-campus weeks will be held each year, the first one at the start of the programme. The courses consist of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, supervisions and course assignments, both in the on‑campus classroom and online. In addition to this, you are expected to engage in independent studies. The forms of instruction, which are based primarily on the use of the internet, place greater demands on your own activity than a purely campus-based programme. Learning environment The teachers draw on their own research in their teaching, for example on cultural practices and representations, methodological intersectional interventions, knowledge production, postcolonial feminisms, equality work, masculinities, and sexualities. We mix traditional teaching formats with formats that are not found in the conventional academic toolbox. We encourage, for example, written and spoken performances that challenge traditional boundaries between academic and creative writing, speaking and intervening. We encourage you to draw on your own experiences and to contribute to developing the content of seminars. We give you the opportunity to work in tutorial groups; i.e. students are divided into smaller groups that discuss various topics with a tutor. We want you to write reflection journals during some of the courses. To give you the latest update on current research, we invite you to take part in our seminars at the Unit for Gender Studies, an excellent and internationally renowned milieu for intersectional gender research. This is one of the largest interdisciplinary research and teaching units for intersectional gender studies in the Nordic countries with a staff of more than 30 researchers, including four full professors and many PhD students. Career opportunities As a student of the master’s programme in Gender Studies – Intersectionality and Change you will be prepared for a career in higher education and research as well as professional work with intersectional gender in organisations, media, communication and politics. This programme can also develop your current career through further training within gender work. Below follows some examples of jobs of some of our alumni: Tess Consoli, PhD student, University of Massachusetts, Boston, School for Global Inclusion and Social Development. Saad Khan, Staff Researcher, Institute of Educational Development, Brac University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. [-]
