DescriptionThe MA in Asian Studies (India and South Asia Studies) equips students to work with, on, and in this dynamic region. The programme offers a deep interdisciplinary understanding of the rapidly transforming societies and cultures of India and South Asia, as well as its entangled history with Asia and the West
The programme also gives a unique opportunity to study abroad for a semester in India/South Asia, where you can either do an internship or carry out research. This research can then be used for your thesis in the fourth semester.
TracksThe programme counts as two years of full-time study and has two tracks: Track A1 is a language specialisation and Track A2 is an international specialisation.
Track A1 gives students the opportunity to learn Hindi, the most widely spoken language in India, at an advanced level. Track A2 enables students to acquire the necessary skills needed to deal with the Indian subcontinent in an increasingly globalised and interconnected world.
Student LifeThere are a range of opportunities available for students of Asian studies. Students can take part in the degree programme committee, discussing everything from academic regulations to Christmas lunches and excursions. The committee also organises parties, Friday bars, and film screenings. The Faculty of Arts and the university in general organise numerous events for students, including lectures, student fairs, career days, seminars, celebrations and sports days.
CareersAs a graduate of the MA in Asian Studies (India and South Asia Studies), you will be well prepared for working in export and outsourcing (collaborating between Danish and Indian companies and institutions), in international development and collaboration (many development projects in India are supported by Danida, the Danish international development agency as well as a number of NGOs), in teaching (at university level, in language schools and in Danish folk high schools) or in translating/interpreting (in organisations like the UN, private companies, and integration projects).
