Aarhus University

Introduction

Aarhus University is an academically diverse and strongly research-oriented institution that creates and shares knowledge.

The university was founded in 1928 and today it has several world class research fields.

Aarhus University (AU) is a top ten university among universities founded within the past 100 years. It has a long tradition of partnerships with some of the world's best research institutions and university networks.

AU has a strong commitment to the development of society that is realised through its collaboration with government agencies and institutions and the business community.

The university’s goal is to contribute towards solving the complex global challenges facing the world. The university therefore strives to combine the high level of academic standards of its researchers with collaboration across disciplinary boundaries to combine research in new ways.

This takes place in close contact with the world around us and creates the basis for the university to be internationally competitive within the areas of research, education, talent development and knowledge exchange.

MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation

Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Denmark Copenhagen Aarhus + 1 more

Education, learning and knowledge are widely recognised as the prime drivers in our rapidly changing world of global mobility. They are also the processes that build equal opportunity, economic development and citizenship – in the North as well as the South. The MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation at Aarhus University is unique in offering an in-depth understanding of the ways in which education, learning and knowledge are negotiated and managed in everyday life in different contexts – across national and cultural boundaries.

EDUCATION, LEARNING AND KNOWLEDGE IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD

Education, learning and knowledge are widely recognised as the prime drivers in our rapidly changing world of global mobility. They are also the processes that build equal opportunity, economic development and citizenship – in the North as well as the South. The MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation at Aarhus University is unique in offering an in-depth understanding of the ways in which education, learning and knowledge are negotiated and managed in everyday life in different contexts – across national and cultural boundaries.

STUDY IN COPENHAGEN

The programme, which is based at the Emdrup campus in Copenhagen, is designed for students seeking advanced training in anthropological approaches to educational practice and process in settings as varied as educational institutions, workplaces, and civil society. The teaching faculty are all active researchers, and this means that a fruitful dialogue has been developed between the anthropological and educational traditions of inquiry, leading towards new arenas of study. Using ethnographic research methods and cross-cultural comparisons, the programme analyses specific (local) practices of education and knowledge in relation to broader (global) social and cultural contexts....

MA in Arab and Islamic Studies

Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Denmark Aarhus

Islam is Denmark’s – and indeed Western Europe’s – second-largest religion. The days are gone when it made sense to study the Arab and Islamic worlds as a distant ‘other.’ Arab communities are to be found within Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is now a Western religion as well as an Arab one. [+]

FOCUSING ON ISLAM AS A TRANSNATIONAL REALITY GLOBALISED AND TRANSNATIONAL ISLAM

Islam is Denmark’s – and indeed Western Europe’s – second-largest religion. The days are gone when it made sense to study the Arab and Islamic worlds as a distant ‘other.’ Arab communities are to be found within Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is now a Western religion as well as an Arab one. The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies therefore focuses on today’s globalised and transnational realities and on Islam and Muslims in Europe as well as in the Arab world.

A TRANSDISCIPLINARY, RESEARCH-BASED TEACHING ENVIRONMENT

The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies is taught by faculty members from the Islamic Cultures and Societies Research Unit (ICSRU). The ICSRU is a transdisciplinary research unit for all Aarhus University scholars who are interested in Islamic cultures and societies, both within the Islamic world and transregionally. The central mission of the ICSRU is to provide a stimulating research milieu for both senior and junior researchers by promoting discussion and exchange as well as arranging events.... [-]


MA in Cognitive Semiotics

Campus Full time 2 years September 2018 Denmark Aarhus

On the MA in Cognitive Semiotics, we study how meaning is created in every sense of the word, whether in perception, thought, or language. [+]

EXPLORING HUMAN COMMUNICATION AND MEANING CONSTRUCTION

Humans experience things as meaningful; we learn by experience, we think, reason, and find new insight. We also, in addition to comprehending meaningful phenomena, constantly produce meaning through communication, science and art. On the MA in Cognitive Semiotics, we study how meaning is created in every sense of the word, whether in perception, thought, or language.

The goal of the programme is to enable our students to come up with well-substantiated answers to questions such as: What are the essential characteristics of meaning construction? How does it work in language, in perception, in our interaction with the natural world, and in the social world?... [-]

DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE AGROECOSYSTEMS

Students in the Agro-Environmental Management programme are out to change the world. Rather than just making minor changes to existing production systems, these students are out to rethink the entire production cycle by optimising production goals as well as environmental targets. They seek to develop sustainable pathways for every level of food production, to use new technologies to comply with increased regulation, and to eliminate waste from the entire production cycle. This approach is not about maximising production – it’s about balancing production with environmental concerns.

Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as the management of border systems and the workings of the nutrient cycle. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project.... [-]
