Advanced Methods and Techniques in Plant Science and Biotechnology


Description

The Danish and global plant production is facing major challenges. The rapid population growth, the increased consumption of animal products and the use of crops for energy purposes demand an increased production. In addition, climate change is expected to have pronounced effects on plant production. At the same time there is also a strong wish among the public that future plant production can take place with minimal applications of pesticides and fertilizers. In effect, plant production is developing into a far more dynamic and demanding scenario in the food-, feed-, non-food-, and bioenergy area.  Plant biotechnology is expected to play a major role in meeting the demands created by this scenario through knowledge on plant genomes, advanced molecular breeding and development of genetic modified organisms (GMO).The course intends to provide the students with experience in advanced molecular techniques used in modern plant science and biotechnology through an intensive two week course.The course will cover state of the art techniques and methods within plant biotechnology research, including the genetic basis of several important plant properties and the use of molecular genetics and genetically modified organisms (GMO)
  • Understand and employ advanced technologies in plant biotechnology such as genetic modification and molecular genetics.
  • Have gained practical hand-on experience with advanced techniques and equipment within plant science and biotechnology.
  • Understand and employ bioinformatics and statistical tools in plant biotechnology.
  • Plan and conduct experiments within plant biotechnology.
  • Develop strategies and models to solve problems relating to plant biotechnology by using fundamental principles in plant biotechnology and genetics.
  • Explain the use of biotechnology in plant breeding.
  • Put into perspective and discuss the potentials of plant biotechnology and breeding for achieving a sustainable agriculture, nationally and internationally.
Through the course, the student will gain an understanding of the practical use of and theory behind the newest techniques within the field of plant science and will be able to employ that knowledge to solve problems within agricultural plant production through biotechnological approaches.
The course will be relevant for students who wish a practical introduction to the newest techniques and theory within plant science and biotechnology, and who wish to understand the potentials of these techniques in future plant production.

Agro-Environmental Management

Description

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 optimizing 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.

Career Opportunities  

Graduates of this programme go on to work in advisory services, for city or regional governments, private companies, or NGOs. They may also find careers at the UN or work in independent consulting, offering assessment services. Students who do their thesis in the context of a specific company are often offered a job there. Many students go on to earn a PhD.

Agrobiology

Description

The agrobiology programme at Aarhus University takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology behind food production. It is broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving. Topics of study include genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature. Broadly, the programme focuses on training students in developing solutions for producing healthy foods while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare.

The core of this programme is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specialisations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, and plant health and pest management, or they can combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes in order to complement their specialisation.

Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills as well as how to do research and generate new knowledge. As much emphasis is placed on the academic and professional skills as on the applied skills.

Career Opportunities  

Most students who complete this programme find employment with an advisory company in relation to primary production. Other careers for which graduates will be prepared include feed or supply, developing new plants, plant protection, teaching, and working with authorities to develop or enforce industry regulations.

Admission

Students must have a bachelor’s degree in life science such as plant, animal or veterinary science. Preference is given to those with an agriculture background. A basic knowledge of biochemistry, statistics, genetics, evolution, or animal nutrition is also beneficial for this programme.  

This programme attracts students who like applied sciences, have an interest in farming and agriculture, and want to save the planet.

Anthropology of Education and Globalisation

Description

Education, learning and knowledge continue to grow in importance. They are widely considered to be prime drivers of global mobility and of the processes of equal opportunity, economic development and citizenship – in the North as well as the South. The MA in Anthropology of Education and Globalisation aims to provide students with the competencies necessary to work with the important topics of education, learning and knowledge in an increasingly globalised world.

The programme is designed for students seeking an advanced training in anthropological approaches to educational practice and process in settings as varied as educational institutions, workplaces, and civil society. The teaching faculty – who are all active researchers – promote fruitful dialogue between the anthropological and educational traditions of enquiry, resulting in 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.  

The programme provides a unique platform for exploring an array of traditional and less usual educational themes and sites across the globe: childhood socialisation and education; educational migration, multiculturalism and new forms of citizenship; global educational policy processes; the production and politics of knowledge; workplace learning, leadership and governance; welfare pedagogy; and  religion and education.

Career Opportunities

Education and life-long learning are of growing global importance. In educating students to embrace a global perspective with an in-depth understanding of how education, learning and knowledge are negotiated and managed in everyday life in differing settings across national and cultural boundaries, the programme is aimed at an internationally oriented labour market.

Arab and Islamic Studies

Description

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 in Europe as well as in the Arab world, and Islam is a Western religion as well as an Arab one. The MA in Arab and Islamic Studies at Aarhus University therefore focuses on today’s globalised and transnational realities, on Islam and Muslims in Europe as well as in the Arab world.

Career Opportunities  

All Western organisations working with the Arab world or with Arab or Muslim communities in the West – from travel agencies to security services – need people with expertise in Arab and Islamic studies. Possible employers include both public sector, from local administrations to aid organisations, and private sector, as many Western firms operate in the Arab world. Graduates in Arab and Islamic Studies also choose careers as journalists, scholars, and political experts.

Admission  

To find out more about admission to the MA in Arab and Islamic Studies please visit the programme’s website.

Asian Studies - India and South Asia Studies

Description

South Asia is one of Asia’s most dynamic regions. It is home to 25 per cent of the world’s population, to the world’s largest democracy, and to rising new ‘development star’ economies like Bangladesh. The region’s nuclear powers are asserting themselves more and more on the global stage. The MA programme in Asian Studies – India and South Asia Studies offers an in-depth but interdisciplinary understanding of the rapidly transforming society and culture of India and South Asia, its increasing interactions with Asia, and its entangled history with the West.

The programme offers three components: a distinctive focus on India and South Asia, a broader Asian perspective, and a chance to specialise in either language-based or international skills. Firstly, courses draw on the insights offered by disciplines such as anthropology, history and political science and apply them in Indian and South Asian contexts. These insights are deepened during a study semester abroad. Secondly, students interact closely with China and Japan specialists within the larger MA in Asian Studies so as to situate India in a larger Asian framework. Thirdly, in order to understand the complex and often contradictory social and cultural realities, students choose between learning Hindi (India’s most common language) on an advanced level in the language track, or acquiring the skills to deal with the Indian subcontinent in an increasingly globalised and interconnected world in the international/non-language track.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the programme will have acquired not only first-hand experience of the region, but the crucial cross-cultural competencies that are required for working as part of a team in international or Danish companies and organisations that are expanding their work with and inside Asia. Graduates will find work not only in government agencies but in consultancy firms, media houses and the tourism industry. Those planning to pursue a career in academia through PhD research can apply to the Graduate School, Arts, either after the first year or after completing the MA.

Audio Drama i Teori og Praksis (In Danish)

Beskrivelse


Audiodrama i teori og praksis er et tværfagligt kursus, der sætter fokus på lyd og fortællinger.
Målet er at give den studerende kompetencer i at formidle drama og fortælling i lyd, i  at analysere og i at reflektere kritisk over det auditive drama som kulturel produktionsform. 
Kurset er praksisbaseret og omdrejningspunktet bliver produktionen af små audiodramaer, som skal give grundlæggende indsigt i de særlige udfordringer, der knytter sig til lydproduktion, både på et teoretisk, et produktionsteknisk og et auditivt æstetisk niveau.

Kurset vil desuden give indblik i audiodramaets historik og diversitet og også tegne et billede af den mediekontekst, der har skabt grundlaget for det aktuelle og mediespecifikke audiodrama, som for længst  har lagt afstand til sceneteatret og fundet egne udtryks- og formidlingsformer.
Indholdet vil veksle mellem arbejdet med produktionsopgaver i grupper, korte workshops i optageteknikker, dramaturgi, instruktion, redigering og lyddesign, samt teoretiske diskussioner hvor der reflekteres over produktionerne i relation til teori, analyse eksempler og forskellige lytteøvelser. 
Kursets første og sidste uge vil være onlinebaseret.
Teoretiske og analytiske diskussioner tager i vidt omfang udgangspunkt i de problemstillinger man møder i udførelsen af de konkrete produktionsopgaver. Teoretisk tages der afsæt i blandt andet Sound Studies, hvor teori om auditive medier, soundscapes, stemmer, lyd, audiodesign, musik og mediespecifikke udtryksformer kombineres i en forståelse af den auditive kultur.  
Kurset henvender sig til studerende på æstetiske fag (musik, litteratur, teater/dramaturgi, film, medievidenskab, digital design),  på journalistiske uddannelser,  på professionsuddannelser (sonic college, transmedia, animation, multiplatform production).

Bank Stress Testing in Practice

Description

The financial crisis demonstrates how rapidly market conditions can subject banks to significant strain or even their collapse, hence the need for identifying, testing, and reducing vulnerabilities at banks and other financial institutions. For this reason, stress testing is occupying a prominent place in the risk management areas, macro-prudential regulation and financial supervision of banks and financial institutions.The course aims to provide a solid knowledge of stress testing methodologies using severe scenarios and a set of benchmark assumptions as an important tool in macro-prudential frameworks, risk-management practices, and financial supervision at banks and financial institutions. Through the use of case studies during class time, the course covers both bank and individual portfolio stress testing techniques, as well as macro stress testing. The participants will be able to develop and carry out a comprehensive stress test programme throughout the development of tools and extensive comparison with real-life banking cases and practical examples in order to test the strength and resilience of portfolios, banks and financial systems as a whole in the worst scenarios and under sudden shocks. To this end, the participants will access to the data they need and work during class time to make informed decisions about the resilience of banks as part of an ongoing process to identify and reduce vulnerabilities.

Beyond Information: Exploring Engaging Stakeholder Communication

Description

For three decades - ever since the appearance of Grunig and Hunt’s (1984) two-way symmetric model of public relations – scholars and practitioners have grappled with the concept of dialogue, and how it might provide mutual benefits for, and respect between, organizations and their stakeholders.  This concern has not diminished over time. As stakeholder guru Freeman argues in his book Stakeholder Management (2010), the importance of stakeholder relationships is increasing as the business environment becomes ever more complex, uncertain, and turbulent. Stakeholder power is of course also being fuelled by the increased use of Internet and, more specifically, social media platforms.
 

The aim of this course is to provide you with a constructive learning environment in which to gain insights into current theories surrounding dialogue and stakeholder engagement, and, not the least, to explore real life examples of organizational attempts to incorporate dialogue and engagement in their communication efforts. Cases will stem from a range of settings, including campaigns, citizen participation efforts and social media sites.  They will illustrate, for example, the bridging strategy in issues management, stakeholder management in CSR strategy formation, web 2.0/social media as a forum for dialogue, staff participation in internal communication, and public participation in government policy work. 

The knowledge and experience gained in this course is intended to strengthen your ability not only to critically evaluate communication practices which aspire to engage, but also to adopt a dialogic mindset which can inspire engaging solutions to communication challenges.

      Corporate Entrepreneurship

      Description

      Modern companies find themselves in a fast-paced, highly threatening, and increasingly global environment that forces them to continually redefine their markets, restructure their operations, and modify their business models. The abilities to think and act entrepreneurially and to innovate are becoming an increasingly important source of competitive advantage. In spite of widespread recognition of the imperative for companies to behave entrepreneurially, most corporations struggle in these efforts. Traditional management practices emphasize safe, slow, and steady growth within hierarchical organization structures. Entrepreneurial management, on the other hand, focuses on rapid growth as the top priority, accepts risk as part of this growth philosophy, and implements flat organizational structures with multiple informal networks. In this course, we will discuss managerial techniques and organizational structures that promote entrepreneurial behaviors in a corporate context.This course focuses on the creation and management of entrepreneurial initiatives within established corporations. The course will concentrate on what managers do to foster climates that facilitate internal corporate entrepreneurship. We will discuss sound venturing strategies regarding ”what kind” of new businesses corporations choose to pursue and “how” those ventures should be structured and managed for maximizing performance.

      Corporate Governance

      Description

      Corporate governance deals with how the suppliers of capital ensure that corporate managers make efficient use of that capital and provide investors with a return commensurate with the risk of the investment. Better governance lowers the cost of capital and leads to greater financial development and higher economic growth. Consequently, countries are searching for the set of governance practices, rules and regulations that will most effectively promote economic development. This course will study the main corporate governance mechanisms, such as, legal and regulatory protection, the market for corporate control, ownership structure, executive compensation policies and practices, the board of directors, and shareholder activism. We will analyze how corporate governance practices differ across countries and how they affect firm value and the development of capital markets.

      Curating, Staging and Exhibition Analysis

      Description

      Museums and other cultural institutions are at the moment challenging conventional forms of exhibitions, concerts and theater production. This can be seen as a response to a contemporary culture, which is directed towards live events, a blurring of former boundaries between the art genres and new types of knowledge production, aesthetic experience and social participation. The course focuses on three issues: 1: a new concept of curating drawing on recent developments within the cross-disciplinary field of the curatorial. 2: exhibition theory and new understandings of exhibitions as complex platforms for the production of knowledge, shared spaces, and affective encounters. 3: the communicative aspects of these complex new formats and the use of digital technologies for developing new educational and participatory formats.

      Current Issues in International Human Rights Law

      Description

      “Human rights” – everyone seems to discuss them, but few seem to understand them, or utilise them correctly. Whether it’s the war in Syria, resulting in millions of refugees looking for safety, or the Greek financial crisis, or cuts to welfare benefits, the term “human rights” is often used but not often well explained.
      International human rights law is about the way the international community answers serious questions about the relationship of individuals to the state, and the relationship between individuals living together within a community. This course will examine current topics in international human rights law, drawing on relevant news and events from 2016 to consider what human rights law actually says – rather than what it sounds like through the media and politicians looking to score big headlines.
      The course will combine the theory of human rights law with practical applications, concentrating on binding legal standards and the cases that have been used to interpret these standards.
      The course is in English, allowing students to develop their knowledge while practicing with a working language of the UN and relevant international courts and tribunals. The course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills appropriate for private or public legal service.

      Deaf Studies

      Description


      This two-part course is taught in International Sign with interpretation to English.
      The course in Deaf Studies consists of two independent one-week courses. The first part (week 1) provides a global overview of Deaf Studies, taught by Annelies Kusters, social anthropologist working in Göttingen, Germany. The second part consist sof a more specialized course in Deaf Bilingualism, taught by Krister Schönström, International Sign linguist from Stockholm University. 

      Deaf Studies Around the World
      Teacher: Annelies Kusters, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen, Germany.
      In this course, the students will be introduced in the discipline of Deaf Studies. Central in this overview is an exploration of themes that have been investigated and a critical examination of the theoretical frameworks and concepts that have been used (such as Deaf culture/community/identity/space/networks/sociality, Deafhood, Deaf Gain). The students also will gain insight in the discipline’s different “waves”. While the first wave of Deaf Studies persistently tried to identify and define “deaf community”, “deaf culture” or “deaf identity” as clearly delineated units, themes explored by researchers in the second wave are “deaf epistemologies” and “deaf ontologies”, in which the embodiment as a deaf person is central. The third wave of Deaf Studies builds upon and extends the second wave’s research by arguing that this embodiment is central not only in the study of the research participants’ experiences but also in terms of the researchers’ positionalities and their relationships with deaf research participants and deaf communities. Decidedly, research in the third wave is also more global in focus. This overview will establish the framework for the remainder of the course in which recent ethnographic research will be discussed, covering all geographic areas and all kinds of deaf spaces including Europe, USA, South-America, Africa, and Asia; urban and rural locations; deaf schools and organisations; temporary deaf spaces such as in pubs and public transport, deaf events and tourism. Throughout the whole course, ethnographic and visual research methods in Deaf Studies will be discussed as well. 

      Deaf Bilingualism
      Teacher: Krister Schönström, Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University.
      This second part of the course will look at some key topics associated with bilingualism in the deaf. General topics from the research in bilingualism and second language acquisition will be combined with topics from the research in deaf bilingualism. The course will specifically include issues related to the acquisition of signed and written/spoken languages. The course will also discuss issues in bilingual deaf education and deaf bilingualism from a societal point of view.

      Design and Entrepreneurship in Organisations for Societal Change


      Description

      Design and entrepreneurship in organizations for societal change is an interdisciplinary and process-oriented Summer School that connects five different organizational environments with ‘ReThink’ – the theme of Aarhus2017 European Capital of Culture. The aim is to rethink these organizations in relation to societal change by “building on what currently exists, while also exploring whether things can be done differently. The theme RETHINK provides Aarhus2017 with the opportunity to create a ‘cultural laboratory’ in the whole region where innovation and alternative solutions can develop and take root.” (http://www.aarhus2017.dk/en)
      In the course we explore and redesign five different organizational environments in entrepreneurial ways.  These five environments represents different core areas of society in Aarhus:
      1.      Culture/municipality (Dokk1)
      2.      Public space/shops (The passage between Main train station and Bruuns)
      3.      Business/startups (StartupLab)
      4.      Education/students (Nobelparken)
      5.      Media/communication (TV2 Østjylland)
      Students will through the course work proactively with rethinking organizational environments through taking designerly and entrepreneurial approaches. The result will be concrete entrepreneurial redesigns of these organizational environments presented as an event at one of these organizations. This event also counts as the final examination.
      The course alternate between weeks of lectures and workshops at the campus (week 1 & 3) and project weeks in groups at the sites (weeks 2 & 4). All projects are carried out in groups of 4-5 students. The result of this will be the production of a work-package for the final event consisting of: 1 academic poster, 1 video-pitch, 1 pecha kucha, 1 prototype/model of the redesign. No technological, design or entrepreneurial competencies are required for this course. Just interest and dedication in relation to the course subject.
      Weeks 1 and 3 (25 - 29 July and 8 - 12 August): Lectures and Workshops at the campus. Weeks 2 and 4 (1 - 5 August and 15 - 18 August): Project Weeks

      Digital Business Innovation and Social Media

      Description


      The course focuses on understanding how business professionals use information technologies for fostering innovation in business models and products and services, and collaboration among professionals, with special emphasis on social media tools and related business models.
      The course starts introducing main concepts and social media tools, including the mobile revolution and the emergence of cloud computing, explaining how companies are using these tools within different contexts, and preparing students with general skills to take their knowledge further in different situations.
      The course brings theoretical frameworks to understand innovation and knowledge creation and sharing, discussing how digital technologies as a whole and social media in particular have been used by entrepreneurs. Through lectures, presentations and workshops, students explore relevant theories and case studies to understand social media tools, such as social networks, blogs, mini-blogs, mashups, file sharing, wiki tools, forums and virtual communities, reputation tools, social bookmarking etc. Particular attention is given to matching tools and specific content to different business strategies, giving examples related to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Wikipedia, SlideShare, Flickr, Google Maps, YouTube, De.li.cio.us, Technorati, Amazon and eBay rating systems, among others.
      Keeping in mind the idea of building strategies, the course explores the role of social media in knowledge management and collaboration, customer relationship management and marketing. In addition, the course shows how social and organisational structures and institutions affect the outcomes on using social media, and the ethical implications of interacting through these interfaces.
      The course also discusses the risks of social media, from damaging reputation to breaking privacy rules and risking liabilities for mismanagement of information. Individuals and companies alike are appropriating social media tools sometimes with no knowledge about risks and liabilities. The course discusses how risk management should be part of any strategy on social media.
      The course aims to show students how to benefit from social media, from personal and professional perspectives, fostering entrepreneurship and capacity of innovation. In addition, the course prepares students to manage the risks inherent to the use of social media, in individual and organizational levels. In sum, the course is important for the broad education of students, preparing them to be innovative and critical in the adoption of social media technology.

      Digital Living: Identities and Complexities

      Description

      In this course, participants will explore the topic of digital living by reading and discussing key issues, concepts, and theories of identity in digital contexts. Attitudes about social media and the forms of social life that emerge with them range from enthusiastic to suspicious. Scholars discuss the issues in different ways. On the one hand, we benefit greatly from our connection to technologies. People can experiment with new personae, new social communities. We have access to more information than ever before, which allows us to acquire more in-depth knowledge, if we seek it out. On the other hand, the “always on” state of the mobile internet (smart phones, e.g.) plus the rise of social networking sites (Facebook and Twitter, e.g.) prompts many critiques. Are we better off? What happens when our everyday activities via the internet are under surveillance? How do the algorithms of Google influence what we are exposed to? The course will take up these questions and issues. Students will read contributions from internationally leading scholars in order to investigate ‘digital living’ and the opportunities and challenges that come with social media and the internet.

            Economics and Business Administration - Logistics and Supply Chain Management

            Description

            Logistics is concerned with the planning and control of a firm’s activities to ensure that the right product is delivered in the right quantity, to the right customer, at the right time. It is not enough just to be a good planner – it is also important to understand how to put various business processes in place with a view to supporting an effective supply chain.  

            The Logistics and Supply Chain Management programme provides students with in-depth knowledge of methods for planning and controlling flows of goods and information in a supply chain. This includes a solid understanding of how to develop the necessary IT-based tools and how to design a strategy for supply chain management.

            Career Opportunities  

            A typical first job for a graduate with an MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management involves specific analysis of logistical performance or the implementation of new logistical solutions. One possible career path is to start out as a logistics analyst, then progress to a project-manager position and eventually to an executive position with overall responsibility for business development.

              Economics and Business Administration - Innovation Management

              Description

              In any kind of organisation, at some point in time there will be a need for development. Most change in an organisation is innovation – new products, processes or organisational forms. Innovation management is concerned with finding the best ways to manage these changes. Rather than being inventors and innovators themselves, students of innovation management primarily create, support and facilitate other people’s ideas to make them a reality. They work both with small, incremental developments and with radical breakthroughs to make organisations perform.

              Career Opportunities  

              Graduates from the Innovation Management programme typically find employment as project, product or marketing managers or as business developers. Some start their own companies or take support functions to CEOs in larger organisations. Job placement after graduation is high.

                Economics and Business Administration - Information Management

                Description

                Information is all around us. It exists in many contexts and makes innovation possible. One of the key challenges of our time is to find out how information can be managed so that it can be used optimally and strategically. That’s where information management comes in.   Information management seeks to be the bridge between businesses and information/IT systems. It is the infrastructure used to collect, manage, preserve, store and deliver information.  

                While other IT degree programmes are more technically oriented, this programme focuses on management and organisation. Students will learn how IT and information systems can support organisations, what kinds of benefits can be achieved from using these technologies, and how to manage and govern these systems.

                Career Opportunities  

                Students typically find management or IT positions across a spectrum of companies, working in roles such as IT manager/chief information officer or in consulting, in business or as enterprise architects. The managerial side of the degree also prepares students for less obvious career paths such as marketing, social media or project management. There is a high demand for university graduates with IT–management skills, and most students find employment within one year of graduation. The starting salary for these graduates is very high.

                Admission

                Description

                The programme aims to give students a broad introduction to a number of economic, legal and organisational issues in the business community.

                        Entrepreneurial Finance

                        Description


                        The objective of this course is to provide a better understanding of corporate finance issues confronting entrepreneurial firms. The issues will be explored by considering the differences between firms for which the standard corporate finance model is appropriate and firms for which the investment and financing issues are interdependent. An objective of this class is to further develop the framework used for thinking about finance issues and develop experience in applying this framework to making useful business decisions. Although the learning objectives will be focused on entrepreneurial ventures, they have direct application in more standard corporate, investments, insurance, and banking finance.
                        This class will take a pragmatic look at some of the financial issues confronting entrepreneurial ventures. The course uses an existing actual entrepreneurial venture to examine issues that arise with entrepreneurial finance. In 2015, the course evaluated the potential market size for an anti-infective that addressed potential complications associated with diabetic foot ulcers. In 2014, the course examined the license value of an anti-infective that addressed infections with implanted orthopedic medical devices. In 2013, the class examined a Danish energy venture that uses energy from the sun to decrease the energy costs of cooling buildings by taking advantage of thermodynamic properties of vacuums. Previous year’s projects included analyses of products addressing the European and North American bovine mastitis markets and products addressing the biofouling of ship’s hulls (biofouling costs the US Navy at least $1 billion each year, likely more for Maersk shipping).By the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:
                        • Forecast Financial Needs ‐ Use simulation and scenario analysis to analyze strategic financial options available to a firm, identify and communicate the optimal option, and estimate and describe a firm’s financial needs based on the recommended course of action.
                        • Identify and Evaluate Real Options – Qualitatively identify real options available with firms or projects, identify the parameters that are important to the valuation of the options, indicate how these options will affect the value of the project or the firm, and use quantitative techniques to provide approximate valuations for these options.
                        • Value the Venture – Understand and be able to explain the difference between the venture valuation models and the standard corporate finance evaluation model from both the investor and entrepreneur’s points of views.
                        • Identify situations where the theories of financial management can be applied to decisions.
                        • Recommend and justify decisions, including decisions arising from ambiguous or unfamiliar information.
                        • Orally present your analysis, recommendations, and justification.

                        European Studies

                        Description

                        We eat Italian pizza and drink Belgian beer. We drive German cars and listen to Swedish pop music. We read English thrillers and watch French films. We go skiing in Norway and sunbathe on beaches in Greece. Although the 30 countries of the European continent have much in common, at the same time they are very different. Today, Europeans are more closely connected to one another than ever before. With an MA in European Studies, you will be qualified to analyse, understand and work not only with European diversity, but with all that connects Europeans.

                        In this programme students work with European issues, using a range of different approaches. They will get to know the EU institutions and analyse cultural, historical and political processes in Europe; they will engage with the question of what Europe really is. The European Studies programme is interdisciplinary and international, and students of European Studies have a unique opportunity to work with their peers from other countries, both from within and outside Europe. This also means that students have the opportunity to speak a great deal of English, both during and outside class.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        An MA in European Studies gives a European perspective that is relevant in career paths ranging from political institutions to international organisations, from the corporate world, to the media, to teaching cultural understanding. Graduates in European Studies find work in Danish, European and international institutions, interest groups and professional bodies. They may choose to teach at university or high-school level, or to be communicators on key European issues in radio and news media. They are qualified to work in planning and implementing qualitative projects and studies in both public and private sectors. Further options include applying for admission to the university’s PhD programme, either after the first year of the MA programme or on completion of the thesis.

                        Admission

                        Evolution, Literature and Film

                        Description

                        Over the past forty years, the evolutionary perspective has gradually developed into an explanatory framework that encompasses all things human: anatomy, physiology, behavior, and the products of the human mind. The evolutionary human sciences are now entering a mature phase. They have developed a sophisticated understanding of basic human motives and the logic of the human life cycle. The one most important weakness in much evolutionary psychology, until recently, has been an inadequate understanding of “culture,” and especially of “imaginative culture”: religion, ideology, myth, the arts, and intellectual life. That weakness is now being corrected by evolutionary thinking emerging from the humanities. Evolutionary studies of literary works have been entering a phase of mature command. This course is designed to acquaint students with the total set of ideas that enter into a biocultural understanding of prose fiction, graphic narratives, and film.

                        Anthropology - Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography

                        Description

                        Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography is a track within the MSc in Anthropology programme. Grounded in anthropological theory, this track gives students the analytical tools to understand the complex problems of global health. It investigates the role of biomedicine at all levels of society, from the individual to the global. Using the concept glocal – the encounter between globalisation and localisation – we point our attention towards the unfolding of biomedicine and biotech sciences in dynamic global–local interlinkages. How are medical thinking and practice shaped in different contexts? How do biomedicine and other medical systems contribute to shaping societal development and cultural practice? What new needs are created by biomedical inventions and interventions, and how do perceptions of sociality, identity and kinship change along with these perceived needs?

                        Students in this track learn how to analyse medical knowledge and practice as part of cultural landscapes that not only shape the conditions under which people live in a globalised world, but influence the very meaning of what it is to be human. Through multidisciplinary discussions of the social and biological life of illness and disease, students will be trained to challenge implicit assumptions about universalism and determinism. They will be groomed to engage in collaboration with epidemiologists, geneticists and other scientists in the broad fields of health and medicine.

                        Career opportunities

                        The MSc in Anthropology provides students with valuable methodological tools and with core competencies in cultural understanding and social analysis. Anthropologists pursue many different career paths, from teaching, project management and development projects to consultancy and analysis work in private and public sectors. The Medical Anthropology and Glocal Ethnography track equips graduates with critical theoretical and methodological tools to engage in work in the global health field – both in the global South and in the global North.

                        Game.Play.Design: ReThink


                        Description

                        GAME.PLAY.DESIGN is an interdisciplinary, playful and process-oriented Summer School that revolves around digital games, digital gameplay and digital game design. The lecturers are themselves interdisciplinary in their approach having professional basis in media studies, information studies, digital design, educational design, interaction design, aesthetics, experience economy and rhetoric. The aim of the course is to design, discuss and critically reflect on digital games through the lens of the student’s profession in a generative way. Through discussing and playing with core concepts in gamedesign and -analysis, through designing and playing our own games, as well as through critically rethinking the role and potentials of games for and in society, the course grapple with digital games as phenomenon, practice and design. Through working in interdisciplinary groups, students engage the potentials of gamedesign through theoretical, empirical and practical work. The aim of the course is to combine theory and practice in playful and innovative ways in order to rethink the potential of a certain context (e.g. a firm, a library, a school, a store, a playground or a family home) through gamedesign.
                        All Game.Play.Design projects are carried out in interdisciplinary groups, composed as to amplify the output in both gameplay thinking and design. Last time the course ran, the interdisciplinary groups’ work resulted, among other things, in a company buying and developing a student group gamedesign concept, a student developed gamedesign exhibited at the Storm P Museum in Copenhagen, good press coverage and employment of students in game companies.
                        In 2016 the course has a special focus on 'ReThink(ing) gameplay' in tribute to Aarhus being the European Capital of Culture. 
                        "RETHINK means that we build on what currently exists, while also exploring whether things can be done differently. The theme RETHINK provides Aarhus2017 with the opportunity to create a “cultural laboratory” in the whole region where innovation and alternative solutions can develop and take root."
                        We will through 'Game.Play.Design' work proactively with this, rethinking the meaning, design, interactions and experience that gameplay can hold.
                        The course will end in an exhibition and reception at Dokk1 simultaneously functioning as the course examination.
                        Weeks 1 and 3 (25 - 29 July and 8 - 12 August): Lectures and Workshops at the campus. Weeks 2 and 4 (1 - 5 August and 15 - 19 August): Project Weeks.

The teaching is greatly influenced by research, and, MSc students will have excellent opportunities for working with researchers in the laboratory or in the field. Students also have the option of carrying out a project in collaboration with a private company. The MSc thesis, written during the final year of the degree programme, carries considerable weight, and in this context students benefit from the informal atmosphere between staff and students. When you write your thesis you have every chance of becoming connected with a group of researchers, so that you will have the opportunity to participate in the group’s research projects, academic discussions and articles.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Geology graduates from Aarhus University find jobs in both private and public sectors, and over the last five years all graduates have found work. Private-sector opportunities include a wide range of jobs in industry or with environmental consulting companies, regional as well as international. North-western Europe (including Denmark) is fortunate enough to be one of the few oil-exporting regions in Europe, and there are therefore a number of positions in the oil industry within exploration and production. Geologists also participate in large building and road-construction projects, where they determine the best positioning in relation to geological conditions.

                        Geophysics

                        Description

                        Earthquakes, groundwater and hydrocarbons are not only concerns for us all, but also primary focal areas for a geophysicist. The two-year MSc in Geophysics programme at Aarhus University is taught at the Department of Geoscience and is open to students from higher education institutions both in Denmark and abroad. A BSc degree in geology or in physics, with geophysics as a major study area or with a similar background, gives access to the MSc programme on the basis of an individual assessment. English-language skills must be documented with, e.g., a TOEFL test score of at least 83 (internet-based) or an IELTS test score of at least 6.5.  

                        The degree programme is both practical and research-oriented and reflects the interests of the business community, research institutions and the public sector. As an MSc student on the programme, you will have excellent opportunities for working with researchers in the laboratory or in the field, and you also have the opportunity of completing a project in collaboration with a private company.  

                        The MSc in Geophysics counts as 120 ECTS credits and consists mainly of subjects within the geophysical field of study, such as field methods (including seismics, electromagnetics, geoelectrics and borehole logging); structure and dynamics of the lithosphere; development of sedimentary basins (including hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs); and modelling of geodata (including deformation and groundwater flows). 

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Geophysics graduates from Aarhus University find jobs in a wide range of areas, and over the last five years all graduates have found work. North-western Europe (including Denmark) is fortunate enough to be one of the few oil-exporting regions in Europe, and there are therefore a number of positions in the oil industry within exploration and production. Geophysicists are also employed within firms of worldwide consulting engineers as well as within national governmental and municipal institutions, where they work with groundwater research, environmental assessments, and ensuring clean drinking water and the re-establishment of watercourses.

                        After completing just one year of the MSc in Geophysics programme, you may apply for admission to a four-year PhD programme. Alternatively, a three-year PhD programme can be initiated after completion of the MSc studies. A PhD in geophysics opens up even wider job opportunities, typically within research and development.

                        Global Entrepreneurship


                        Description

                        Countries characterized by economic, social and political environments that are conducive to entrepreneurship provide more opportunities for businesses to grow and develop faster. Since business ventures are becoming increasingly global, an understanding of entrepreneurial environments of economies worldwide is crucial in order to exploit opportunities worldwide. 
                        In light of the above observations, this course examines how economic factors, physical factors, trade factors and formal and informal institutions affect entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs create and manage business ventures that have international dimensions. 
                        This course is multidisciplinary in nature and scope and provides broad global perspectives on cultures, nations and sub-nationalities in the industrialized and developing world from the standpoint of entrepreneurship. This course also examines how cultural, social, political, economic and historical changes taking place in the world, especially in the economies in transition, affect entrepreneurial development. It places a special emphasis on inter-connections between regions through such mechanisms as global flow of goods, services, labor, capitals, technology and people; and the roles of supra-national institutions (e.g., the OECD). In the course, case analyses will draw on concepts, skills, and insights from such disciplines as marketing, operations, finance, control, decision-making, leadership, ethics, governance, negotiation. 
                        The course will be organized around three major sections: (1) international entrepreneurship: drivers, performance, and impact, (2) entrepreneurship in economies with diverse economic and institutional conditions, and (3) cases related to international entrepreneurship.

                        Global Management and Manufacturing

                        Description

                        The Global Management and Manufacturing (GMM) programme is for students who wish to work in global management, sourcing and production. The global perspective is an essential part of the study programme, which also includes a unique mentor programme.  

                        The GMM degree is a broad engineering programme combining the disciplines of production, sourcing, product development, economics and management. Global markets and companies are in focus during the study period, including Danish global companies such as Grundfos, Siemens Wind Power, Arla and LEGO.

                        The duration of the GMM programme is three and a half years. The programme focuses on four main subject areas: manufacturing, quality, product development, and international business administration.

                        What is truly unique about GMM is that each student is associated with a company with which they work closely from the third to the seventh semester. This is called Company Connect and it means that students solve tasks in relation to their studies, and that they can try out theories, models and concepts in the context of real, practical problems in the company. In this way students gain numerous opportunities to confront theory with practice during their studies.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Graduates are well placed to challenge the international market and find employment as production managers, quality engineers, environmental engineers, technical managers, logistics managers or project managers, in both European and internationally oriented companies.

                        Globalising your Business - How to Conquer the World?


                        Description

                        In today’s business world the survival of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) can depend on their abilities to utilise the advantages of globalisation and/or to defend against its negative effects. Quite often internationalising the firm is the only way ahead. However, companies contemplating internationalisation need to understand that there are advantages to it (from supply, demand and innovation points of view) but also costs involved in entering a new market and managing that process.
                        The course will guide the students through the steps a small company should take before and after deciding to expand their activities beyond the boundaries of their home country. By using the case study of a fictional SME, operating in the electronics sector, the students will have to decide about the best way to internationalize this company and select the country (or countries) offering the best potential for its further development. To achieve the competences to solve the case, the students will learn about the global business environment, comparing countries based on culture, risk and resources related factors, using and applying several frameworks, theories and databases. After carrying out a weighted analysis based on the real life information and data they collect as a small group, the students will present their findings to their peers.
                        This course will help students to critically analyse, evaluate and appraise the factors which constitute and influence the global business environment. They will learn about the complex and often unpredictable variables and contexts important to international business. Along the way the students will learn interesting, exciting and fascinating facts about several countries and the way they conduct business. The course will also provide students with critical awareness of the pervasive issues – including sustainability, globalisation, corporate social responsibility, diversity, business innovation and risk management.

                        Håndværk og Epistemologi i Etnografisk Tekst (In Danish)

                        Beskrivelse


                        Kurset tilbyder en praktisk tilgang til skrivning af etnografisk tekst samt en diskussion af etnografisk validitet, teksters virkemidler og mere grundlæggende spørgsmål om, hvad vi “ser", når vi gør det, vi kalder at observere. Det er ikke et formidlingskursus, men en epistemologisk diskussion af etnografiske skriveprocesser og en undersøgelse af de observationer, de må bero på. Ved at inddrage fysiske øvelser, tegning og litterære virkemidler skal vi blive bedre til at se og til at notere og senere beskrive, hvad vi ser.
                        Kursusdagene vil bestå af forelæsninger, øvelser samt diskussion af øvelser og læste tekster. Pensum (ca. 600 sider) skal læses på forhånd. Der bør forventes hjemmearbejde udover undervisningstiden i de uger, kurset foregår.
                        Den studerende vil erhverve sig følgende kompetencer:
                        - Evne til at foretage præcise og fagligt relevante observationer af konkrete hverdagsbegivenheder.
                        - Evne til præcist og levende at beskrive fagligt relevante observationer.
                        - Evne til selvstændigt at reflektere over en konkret beskrivelses relevans for en given faglig analyse.
                        - Evne til selvstændigt at reflektere over en given teksts skrivestil og validitet ud fra et udvidet kendskab til central diskussioner om repræsentation indenfor antropologi og relaterede videnskaber.

                        Healthy Entrepreneurship and Innovation


                        Description

                        The objective of this course is to enable students to create opportunities based on their academic and professional skills and knowledge. Employing methods from entrepreneurship and innovation, students learn how to initiate value creating projects and products. The overall understanding of entrepreneurship in this course is much broader than merely establishment of new companies. Based on well-founded theories we see entrepreneurship as a method (Venkataraman & Sarasvathy 2011). Thus the theoretical underpinning of the method can be investigated and the method can be learned through the course components, which are: a) theoretical introduction, b) training, c) application and d) reflection. The course inspires students to an entrepreneurial and innovative approach in many settings such as their primary study programme, research, clinical practice, the industry and of course also start-ups.  
                        The entrepreneurial process holds four major elements:
                        • Understanding your own means – who are you, what do know and whom do you know? (Sarasvathy 2001, 2008)
                        • Finding problems and creating opportunities (Spinoza, Flores and Dreyfuss 1997, Alvarez and Barney 2006)
                        • Qualifying products and creating a business model (Osterwalder and Pigneur 2010)
                        • Realizing value and pitching to relevant stakeholders (Wilmot and Carlson 2006)

                        After the course, the students must be able to:
                        • Explain and compare the presented entrepreneurship and innovation theories
                        • Explain the core components in the entrepreneurial process and use this knowledge to reflect upon the process that he/she has gone through during the course
                        • Describe and reflect upon relevant personal and professional competences and preferences in an entrepreneurial team including network
                        • Identify, describe and scope relevant problems (or disclose disharmonies) in everyday practices in a medical setting
                        • Apply methods to find out if the problem or disharmony is widely accepted as a problem
                        • Identify and qualify an opportunity through an innovation process
                        • Prepare a preliminary business model and be able to discuss the pros and cons of different types of business models
                        • Present an opportunity to stakeholders

                        History

                        Description

                        The world has never been more interconnected. With a track specialising in International and Global History, the MA in History at Aarhus University provides an important new historical approach that is not defined by national boundaries. Students explore in depth the historical forces and processes that have created the present-day world, in both global and comparative perspective. The International and Global History track is designed to allow students to deepen their interests in international and global history, and to gain a thorough preparation for further study and research in the field.

                        During the two-year programme track, students learn both to analyse large-scale historical processes and to pursue empirical research. In year one, they are introduced to differing theoretical, methodological and historiographical approaches to writing international and global history. Students acquire a solid grounding in key themes in international history, are introduced to the history of international organisations, and gain insight into Scandinavia’s international position and role.  

                        In year two, students choose between several options. They may specialise in particular geographical regions or other aspects of international history. They can choose to go abroad to study, or they can put the knowledge they have gained into practice through an internship. In their last semester, students write their thesis under regular, supportive one-to-one supervision.  

                        Courses are taught in seminars, colloquia and one-on-one consultation. The programme track offers students the opportunity to work closely with experts in the field.

                        Career profile

                        The International and Global History track of the MA in History provides students with solid analytical and research skills, a strong capacity to process and present information critically and reflectively, and sensitivity to complex historical, political and cultural issues. As well as providing a firm foundation for further academic study, the programme is an excellent basis for careers in government, journalism, international organisations and NGOs, as well as libraries and museums.

                        Human Security

                        Description

                        The concept of human security was first introduced by the UN in 1994 as a way of approaching the various kinds of insecurity faced by humanity. Unlike development strategies to date, which were nation- and state-focused, this approach focused on how individuals and groups experienced insecurities in their daily lives. A new academic discipline was born.  

                        While many universities offer courses on human security, Aarhus University is one of the very few European universities to offer a full degree programme in this field. Instead of just focusing on one kind of security, students in this programme learn how the various securities interrelate, creating the holistic understanding necessary to solve global crises.

                        Human security focuses on seven pillars or types of insecurity in order to understand and work with processes of development in unstable or conflict-affected environments. The seven pillars are economic security, food security, health security, environmental security, personal security, community security, and political security. While each course has its particular focus, a special emphasis is placed on environmental security because of the impact of large-scale environmental disasters on all other forms of security.

                        Career Opportunities

                        A significant part of the programme is a work placement or internship of at least three months, in partnership with an institution, organisation or business working with human insecurity. The work placement or internship helps students to develop their skills and find careers later on. Many graduates go on to work for development-related organisations such as the UN, or move on to research-related projects around the globe.

                        Identity and Privacy

                        Description


                        Where digital service providers a few years ago, handled users by username/password and a local user database, we have in a few years seen major changes. It is now possible to use various services for user handling, and delegation of access to data between services is now possible and is used more than ever. This trend is supported by a large amount of protocols such as OAuth and OpenID as well as several commercial solutions including Facebook Connect and in a Danish context NemID. In the future this development will be further driven by cloud computing and "the API economy" where companies are subcontractors to each other using APIs to cloud-based solutions. These changes make it important to have a technical understanding of the security and the functionality around the management of digital identities.
                        The course work is both theoretically and practically concerning these "state of the art" technologies for managing digital identities. In addition, we take a look at some of the emerging technologies that supports security, including privacy in completely new ways. This is cryptographic technologies like anonymous credentials/attribute based credentials(eg. Microsoft U-Prove and IBM Identity Mixer). Parallel with these technical changes major legal changes are on the way, especially from the EU, where a new regulation is on its way. This Regulation will have implications for all Danish companies that manage users on the Internet, and it is therefore important as a technician to have a firm understanding of these implications, therefore, the course will also touch on these legal aspects (by using an external teacher, expert in this field).

                        This course will provide training in interdisciplinary ethnography, using the field as a social laboratory. Anchored in immersive participant observation, students will be introduced to an interdisciplinary approach to ethnography which blurs the boundaries between traditional dichotomies like qualitative/quantitative, sciences/humanities, and field/lab. The course will also examine key methodological, epistemological, and ethical issues pertaining to the study of culture and working with human subjects. Furthermore, it will involve a series of field trips and lectures on Mauritius, its diverse culture, and its fascinating history.
                        The course takes place in Mauritius, a small tropical island nation in the Indian Ocean. Mauritius lies between places and traditions. Geographically, it belongs to Africa, although it is located 1500 miles from the continent. Historically, it has been colonized by the Dutch, French, and British, all of whom have left their marks on the local culture. And demographically, it is one of the most diverse societies in the world. Its inhabitants draw their ancestries from various places in Asia, Africa, and Europe; they speak a great variety of languages, including French, English, and the Mauritian Creole; and they practice a multitude of religions, among which most prominent are Hinduism, Catholicism, and Islam. Such diversity makes Mauritius an ideal “social laboratory”.
                        In this course, you will acquire skills pertaining to:
                        Designing, conducting, and reporting a field study 
                        • Key methodological and epistemological issues pertaining to the relation between ethnographic and experimental work
                        • Ethical issues in working with human subjects
                        • A basic knowledge of Mauritian culture and history

                        Introduction to Interactive 3D Graphics

                        Description

                        In this course the participants will be introduced to interactive 3D graphics. 3D graphics is used in interactive applications such as games, product presentations, spatial interactive experiences and art. Hardware accelerated 3D graphics through the modern Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is accessed through APIs. In this course we will utilize the WebGLAPI available in most modern browsers through Javascript - although the topics are directly applicable to standard OpenGL on other platforms.
                        This course will give an introduction to the basic mathematical concepts, API structures, and computer graphics concepts necessary to build your own interactive 3D graphics application form the ground up.
                        The modern graphics pipeline is fully programmable, hence we will learn the GLSL programming language to write “shaders”. We will also look into basic topics such as transformations of vectors between the many “spaces” involved in computer graphics – as well as the transformation of geometry, textures and shaders into final rendering through the programmable graphics pipeline.
                        Finally we will specifically learn how WebGL is controlled through javascript – and can be used to create stunning visual experiences and games directly in the browser.

                        Description

                        The MSc in IT Product Development is based at the Department of Computer Science and offered in collaboration with the Aarhus School of Architecture. The degree programme is organised by the Department of Computer Science, but the variety of the lecturers’ backgrounds means that subjects are included both from computer science and from industrial design at the Aarhus School of Architecture.

                        During the first year of the MSc programme, a number of required courses are held in the following research priority areas: physical and spatial design (designing interactive IT products and environments);
                        advanced web technology (programming and applying dynamic web applications and technologies); and interaction design for pervasive computing (designing, constructing and implementing software for pervasive and mobile IT units). These are followed by an innovation project.

                        During the second year, students complete an MSc thesis that counts as 30 ECTS credits. Elective courses provide students with the opportunity to specialise in fields including technical video and sound, strategic design, and computer graphics.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        As an IT product development graduate, you will be particularly qualified to develop IT products and digital and physical interface applications supplemented by web-based services.

                        Journalism, ICT and Digital Media

                        Description


                        What is interactive journalism? How do you design applications? How do you add visualisations to your story? What are the best new tools to create digital content? Why do we need data journalism? What is an algorithm and why it is important for news circulation? How is social news different from online news? 
                        Few would argue that this is not the time of profound change in digital journalism and media. Mobile media and web 2.0 affordances have changed the formats, tools, interfaces, practices, and platforms of content production. Old ways of doing journalism do not apply, and new ways of producing digital content and multimedia packages to different platforms (online, mobile and tablets) are only just emerging.
                        This course focuses on technological innovations in digital journalism, and how ICT-related features modify journalistic storytelling in the multimedia environment.
                        The aim of the course is to give both a conceptual, methodological and learning-by-doing, hands-on understanding of digital journalism and computational thinking.

                        The course will introduce the students to:
                        1) digital and social innovations in media digital journalism
                        2) computational thinking and new hands-on practices in relation to media and digital journalism
                        3) research methods to analyze and assess the new digital journalism and media environment (multimedia storytelling, infographics, data-journalism, visual storytelling, news applications, and APIs)

                        The course is divided in three different parts:
                        1) An introduction to ICT, journalism and digital media
                        2) Methods and concepts for analyzing digital media and journalism
                        3) A hands-on journalism project based on ICT innovations in digital journalism

                        For each of the following activities, we explore, analyze, and produce media content:
                        1) Students are introduced to examples of industry-based innovative it-based journalistic projects
                        2) Students are introduced to methodological and analytical tools to assess the quality of it-based journalistic projects
                        3) Students are introduced to the technological tools to innovate and produce it-based journalistic projects

                        Language and Marketing

                        Description


                        Marketing communication and research heavily rely on language. Advertisers use language to convince consumers to buy a certain product. Market researchers ask consumers what they think about a product or what kind of product consumers think they need. Obviously, the success of such marketing efforts depends on linguistic and psycholinguistic processes. This course provides a range of interdisciplinary contents and sources recent empirical research. It has a high practical relevance for applied research on marketing communication. Apart from reviewing experimental studies, we analyze and discuss several cases, e.g. on pharmaceutical marketing and ‘Google AdWords’. Selected research questions to be discussed are:
                        • How can the linguistic structure of brand names influence brand perception?
                        • How can linguistic framing manipulate consumer decision making?
                        • What are the potentials and limits of priming and subliminal advertising?
                        • How do metaphors and narrative structure affect consumer memory and learning?
                        • How does the violation of conversational maxims affect consumer emotions and behavioral change?
                        • What is important if advertising targets bilingual consumers?
                        The objective of this course is that students become more sensitive to the relation between language and consumer behavior. Therefore, they acquire basic background knowledge in central areas of psycholinguistics and marketing communication. The practical aim is that students learn to apply this new knowledge analytically and constructively to solve authentic problems in market research and advertising. As a by-product, this course provides training in important skills such as reading and comprehending research articles, giving informative and concise presentations and teamwork.

                        Language Description and Linguistic Fieldwork


                        Description

                        The summer school course in language description and linguistic fieldwork will give you a broad introduction to the practical and methodological aspects of fieldwork, and the art of language description. It will also provide insight in the structures of two unfamiliar languages. The course consists of two parts: a structural course on a non-familiar language and fieldwork workshops with a speaker of an underdescribed language.

                        Intensive course in a non-familiar language. The language chosen will have a range of properties unfamiliar from European languages. This course will teach the structure of the Australian language Warrwa (Nyulnyulan), a moribund language of the Kimberley region of Western Australia. The course is not geared towards conversational competence in that language, but to insights into the structure of this language. Phonology, morphology, syntax and more will be covered. Nyulnyulan languages form a small family (non-Pama-Nyungan) of about ten languages, none of which is presently viable. Some of the interesting and/or unusual features of Nyulnyulan languages, including Warrwa, are: optional ergative case marking, the existence of two person-number systems in the pronouns (one for free pronouns, the other for bound pronouns), “free” word order, a system of verb classification coded in a compound verb construction, an unusual (for Australia) system of verbal conjugation, an applicative construction, and a complement construction expressing the desiderative.

                        In this part of the course, students will learn theoretical, ethical, methodological and ethnographic aspects of linguistic fieldwork. The course is aimed at the grammatical description of a non-Indo-European or non-European language. Students learn how to organize a fieldtrip, collect linguistic material, and analyze aspects of the sound system and grammatical structure of a language. The use of recording equipment, available software and other practical matters will also be dealt with. The workshop will consist of classes by an experienced teacher and fieldworker and practical sessions with a speaker of a non-European or non-Indo-European language. The workshop language will be different from the language in the structure course.

                        Leadership, Management Strategy and Business Ethics

                        Description


                        Over the last decade it became clear to many of those working in the business sector that we have several problems to solve in our economic system. Among the many different and important topics to consider, one is the ethical behaviour of the upper levels of management in big and medium-sized companies. A lot of scandals (Deutsche Bank, different companies in the clothing industry, Shell in Nigeria Volkswagen etc.) showed to professors, managers and students that we need a new and broader reflection about how managers act in business and how we can integrate ethical perspectives into our management style. My approach in these lectures is to integrate into a classical course about management strategy those ethical and human questions, problems and demands which, if left unaddressed, can create great challenges for handling a market (market cultivation). Wrong decisions by upper and top management can result in great problems which can also place the company itself in a precarious position, as we currently see, for example, in the case of VW. 

                        This course’s main goal is to present, discuss and practice different strategical methods and explore their theoretical background in business ethics. Since every level of management is shaped by its leaders, the focus of this course is on leadership.

                        The students will explore and connect different lessons from economic philosophy (Aristotle and Smith) with modern theories about management strategy and ethics in leadership. The course is divided into modules where the students will be introduced to business ethics and leadership in management. In these modules we will also investigate what we can learn from “old” authors. 

                        Through a dynamic pedagogical approach, this course combines theoretical introductions with case studies followed by individual and team exercises and discussion groups. In this way, we will discover together how to apply theory to practice and increase the excitement of learning. 

                        After taking this course, students should be able to perform the following with greater confidence and understanding:
                        • Define and explain what ethics means in leadership
                        • Articulate the valid claims of classical authors, and employ various techniques to promote ethical behaviour in the day-to-day business of a company
                        • Evaluate intelligently and embody deliberately a system of values through a personal style of strategic management
                        • Appreciate the competition between ethical behaviour and business or personal success

                        Leading and Designing Organisations

                        Description

                        The world we live in today is captured very aptly in the acronym Vuca: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. In this “New Normal”, organizations need to show sustained performance while simultaneously showing extreme care for all stakeholders. This is not possible unless buiness leaders understand the importance of organization design in VUCA world. Professional organizations require leadership, strategy, adaptability and coordination on a scale never before imagined. In this regard the major challenge is, “how to design a work organization that can quickly adapt with the dynamic market realities?’’ The employees’ and customers’ need and demand are ever changing and competitors adopt better ways of doing business which create a pressure on the organization’s capability to align with the internal processes (structure, system and culture) and external challenges (competitors and customers) to remain efficient and effective. Organizations need managers with high such a leadership potential right at the entry stage. Hence, I have designed the course on “Leading and Designing Organizations” to help the leaders to understand how organizations work from inside in terms strategies, structure, system, culture and people management practices and how managers can develop some of the required competencies to redesign a company.

                        Thus this course provides students with the social science tools needed to solve organizational problems and prepare leaders to understand how to organize the task, coordinate across the teams, motivate the human capital of the firm, manage the social networks, develop emotional intelligence and conflict management skills, and initiate organizational transformation.

                        In cases studies of several successful organizations McKinsey, 3M, GE, P&G, and startups, it is seen that empowered employees and the design of a learning organization often improve productivity, profits and sustainability. As a starting point, this course is organized around three different perspectives on organizations: the strategic design perspective, the political perspective, and the cultural perspective. Each of them offers a different angle on what is an organization, and each offers different tools for action. I have designed and developed business games and selected case studies that are relevant to imbibe such competencies among the participants. As the part of my teaching philosophy, I believe in making things simple and comfortably better for the students.

                        Management Information Systems


                        Description


                        The purpose of any Information System is to help an Organisation manage its business better. For instance, an Inventory Management System would assist the organisation in keeping track of stocks and optimising stock levels. An HR Information system would help in managing the key Human Resources of the organisation, and so on. With ever increasing complexities of business as well as management, now a days, Information systems are not merely required for improving efficiency of business operations; rather these systems are used for effective business decisions and achieving strategic advantage. As a result of the increasing role of Information Technology (IT) in an enterprise, the functions of information systems are changing. It is transforming from a technology provider to a strategic partner and from a resource to a strategic tool. Because of the increasing use and participation of IT in all processes and projects, all the managers, irrespective of their functional areas, need to understand, deploy and effectively manage Information Systems (ISs)/IT.

                        The research on IS has clearly established that in many cases, Information Systems do not meet the business needs for which they were originally intended and thus fail to provide the expected return on investment/ business value. There are several reasons for this failure that include lack of planning; lack of alignment of business and IT, communication gap between the business and IT professionals; lack of effective IT project management and implementation  and so on. Most organizations tend to delegate the planning process to the IT Department, which in most cases views this as a technical problem rather than a solution to a business need. The key to successful IS Implementation, therefore, is to create a “Business – linked Information Systems Plan”. Accordingly, IS planning forms a key component of this MIS course.

                        The other important issue in the area of MIS is the underlying IT technologies that support Information Systems. Most managers need to take decisions with regard to these technologies. Unfortunately however, most of them do not have sufficient understanding of these technologies, and therefore leave key decisions to technologists – with disastrous consequences. Therefore, another component of this course will cover the basics of IT technologies that are today commonly used in organizations, along with implications for managers.

                        Finally, once the IS Plan is in place; the systems decided upon must be either bought out or developed, and ultimately implemented. The last component of the course would therefore focus on ERP systems (which are the most commonly available bought out systems in the market). It would also cover the process of Information System Analysis and Design, with emphasis on Requirements Analysis, which would be used when systems are to be developed.

                        Mathematics

                        Description

                        Mathematics is part of day-to-day life – of using your debit card and navigating with GPS, just as much as making calculations in physics or chemistry or working out the pot odds in an important hand of poker. The two-year MSc in Mathematics programme at Aarhus University is open to students from higher education institutions both in Denmark and abroad. 

                        Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. The MSc thesis, written during the final year of the programme, carries considerable weight, and in this context students benefit from the informal atmosphere between staff and students. When writing the thesis, students have excellent opportunities to be connected with a group of researchers and can participate in the group’s research projects and scientific discussions. Students can specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the three areas of mathematics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: algebra and combinatorics, analysis, and geometry and topology. 

                        Career Opportunities

                        A mathematics degree is the key to a huge variety of careers. Aarhus University educates mathematicians for both Danish and international job markets. Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide range of fields and institutions – in finance, communication or the wind-power industry in the private sector, as well as teaching in Danish high school. A high proportion of our MSc graduates stay on in academia as PhD students at Aarhus University, elsewhere in Denmark, or abroad.

                        Mathematics - Economics

                        Description

                        Have you thought about how rates for a new mortgage loan should be fixed – with an interest-rate ceiling or as interest-only loans? In fact it was mathematics–economics graduates who developed the model used for fixing the cost of such loans. All major companies face complex problems, and many turn to a mathematics–economist when they do. Mathematics–economists are experts in designing optimisation strategies, something that requires great theoretical insight into both economics and mathematics.
                        As a student of mathematics–economics, you have the option of specialising in a subject within a broad area, including one of the areas of mathematics–economics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: mathematical finance, economics, and operations research. 


                        Career Opportunities  

                        Job prospects for mathematics–economists are extremely positive and career opportunities are many.  A large proportion of our graduates find work in the private sector. Banks and insurance companies are the major workplaces for mathematics–economists, with many being employed as problem-solvers in consultancy and telecommunications companies. Planning departments in large industrial or manufacturing companies also represent a relevant job market. In the public sector, there are jobs in administration and planning at universities and other educational institutions, on supervisory boards and in ministries. The degree programme also qualifies graduates for a career as a researcher.

                        Mechanical Engineering

                        Description

                        You will find the answers to many questions in the field of solid-state and fluid mechanics, known by the collective title of applied mechanics. Such questions include: How do you design the blades of a wind turbine? How do you calculate the lifetime of a computer chip or a fuel cell? What surface coatings are suitable for tools, and what should you use for hip-joint implants? How do you analyse the dynamics of a racing car? How do you configure the sail of a boat as efficiently as possible?   These examples demonstrate that applied mechanics is a subject with great scope for interdisciplinary collaboration. Working with the conventional machinery industry is one option, but there are also opportunities for collaborating with manufacturers of composites and materials, the electronics industry, the construction industry and in fields such as biomechanics and biomaterials.   Mechanics is also a basic engineering research discipline that is on the move internationally and is represented at most universities all over the world. This makes a career as a researcher in this field yet another option.

                        As a graduate from this programme, you will be capable of understanding and applying advanced calculation methodologies, such as the finite element method (FEM) and multidisciplinary simulation tools. The emphasis of the degree programme is on providing an opportunity to apply theory to practical issues and on providing the expertise necessary to go on to a PhD. The content includes elements such as fluid dynamics (CFD), structural dynamics and modal analysis, and fracture mechanics and fatigue. The basis for these competencies includes continuum mechanics, elasticity theory and plasticity theory.

                        Career opportunities

                        Graduates typically find jobs within R&D departments in industrial companies, but with the backup provided by a graduate engineering degree, you can also pursue a career as a researcher at a university in Denmark or abroad.

                        Medicinal Chemistry

                        Description

                        The MSc in Medicinal Chemistry programme is open to both Danish and international students. The programme is both practical and research-oriented and reflects the interests of industry, academic research institutions and the public sector. It is also flexible and can accommodate the interests of the individual student, who can specialise in a particular subject area while acquiring general competencies in chemistry.

                        Teaching in the programme is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. In this context students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between faculty and students. Students have excellent opportunities for working with researchers in the laboratory. It is also possible to complete a project in collaboration with a private company or a public institution such as a hospital. For their thesis work, students are associated with a research group at the department of their choice and participate in the group’s research projects and academic discussions, and perhaps even co-author an article.

                        Students can specialise within a broad area in one of the areas of medicinal chemistry in which Aarhus University is particularly strong – synthesis and analysis of potential new pharmaceuticals; structure, activity and pharmacological characteristics of membrane proteins; microscopic structure of bones and other bioinorganic materials; modelling of proteins and their interaction with pharmaceuticals; and drug delivery and chemical biology.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Medicinal chemistry graduates work across a wide range of fields and institutions. Most jobs, however, are within research, development and consultancy in both public and private sectors, particularly in pharmaceutical and biotech companies. The health services also employ several medicinal chemistry graduates, where for example they may be involved in developing new clinical and chemical diagnostic methods in hospitals. The skills acquired on the programme are also in great demand in the food industry and the agricultural sector. Many graduates continue their studies at Aarhus University or other universities towards the PhD degree, often with interdisciplinary research projects.

                        Molecular Biology

                        Description

                        The MSc in Molecular Biology programme is open to Danish and international university students. The programme is both practical and research-oriented and reflects the interests of the business community, research institutions and the public sector. It is flexible and can accommodate the interests of the individual student, who can specialise in a particular subject area while acquiring general competencies in molecular biology.

                        Teaching in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. Teaching is of a high academic standard and the research at a high international level. Ongoing research projects include subjects and competencies at all levels, from bacteria and yeast to humans. The understanding of biochemistry and molecular biology is based upon the entire spectrum, from atoms to organisms.

                        Students can choose to specialise within a more general field – for example, one of the five branches of molecular biology in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: molecular medicine, structural biology, systems biology, plant biology, and quantitative genetics.
                        The MSc in Molecular Biology programme counts as 120 ECTS credits. Students can tailor the study programme to fit their qualifications and interests. In the first year, students follow an individually planned course programme, while in the second they write a thesis. There are excellent opportunities for connecting up with a group of researchers in connection with work on the thesis project. This gives students a chance to participate in the group’s research projects, academic discussions and articles.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Molecular biology graduates are well placed in both Danish and international job markets. They work across a wide range of fields and institutions, mostly within research or administration and consultancy, in both private and public sectors. If your wish is to become a communicator, you can teach at laboratory-technician and teacher-training colleges or in adult education. Molecular biologists also work in specialist molecular biology fields in the food industry, the health sector and the pharmaceutical industry.

                        Organic Agriculture and Food Systems

                        Description

                        The MSc programme in Organic Agriculture and Food Systems (EUR-Organic) is a unique degree that combines high-ranking research environments with state-of-the-art knowledge from industry leaders in organic food production. It prepares students to develop the solutions of tomorrow. Students will focus on goals such as high crop yields, high animal welfare, and low environmental impact. They will learn how agriculture systems and current methods of food production work. They will focus on developing intelligent solutions to problems.

                        This programme is a collaboration between four leading European universities in the field of agriculture and life sciences (Aarhus University, University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, University of Natural Resources and Life Science in Vienna, and Warsaw University of Life Sciences).   Students will spend one year at their chosen home university and one year at their chosen host university, and will receive degrees from both institutions. Each university takes a different thematic approach to organic food production. Aarhus University’s specialisms include organic agriculture with focus on animal or plant production, health, and welfare/nutrition.   For detailed information on the different universities’ specialisms, visit www.eur-organic.eu.

                        Denmark is a world leader in organic food production. Its government was one of the first to prioritise organic production, and an increasingly high percentage of food produced in Denmark today is organic.   This programme gives students an international profile, network and perspective. Students will be exposed to differing parameters in different countries and agriculture systems around the world. They will learn from their peers’ different ways of approaching a problem – very important in an increasingly globalised industry.

                        Career Opportunities

                        Graduates from the programme can choose from a wide range of careers in supporting organic farming development. Recent graduates have worked in research, with authorities and advisory services in primary production, and even in teaching.

                        Organizational Behavior, Collective Mind and Leadership


                        Description

                        One possible understanding of organizational behavior is that it captures the ability of an organization to make decisions as a unified body that does not coincide with any of its members, not even the CEO. Of course, disagreements, feuds and compromises occur all the time, yet the overall outcome is never precisely a composition of individual wills and strategies. Rather, decisions are made by a complex organism whose components are human beings linked to one another by behavioral routines, i.e., little myopic actions that individuals undertake towards one another which to some extent repeat themselves over time. Sequences of such actions may span lines of individuals that close themselves in a loop, making routines repeat themselves indefinitely as it may happen, e.g., within long-standing relations between customers and suppliers.


                        In the seemingly different field of cognitive sciences one observes relatively simple cells, the neurons, giving rise to such a complex object as the human brain by virtue of billions of connections that enable information to circulate along loops. Neuroscientists have discovered that brains do not store information at any particular place, as computers or libraries do, but rather make it circulate along closed loops. Thus, stored information can only be accessed by other information items which happen to circulate in neighboring loops. This is what we do whenever we associate ideas, employ mnemonic rules or suddenly discover novel possibilities by intuition. The conclusion to be drawn is that human brains work by drawing analogies and associating insights, not by means of algorithms.

                        This course explores organizational behavior in light of the insights provided by cognitive sciences. Organizational decision-making is viewed as drawing analogies between organizational routines and the external environment. Leadership is understood as the ability to draw analogies that allow individuals and organizations to construct coherent narratives that explain the past and provide a direction for the future. This understanding of organizational decision-making is particularly relevant for innovative firms that have to create new markets for new products.

                        Psychodynamics frameworks and agent-based computer models are employed in order to provide students with tools to analyze practical contexts. Applications to routines in jazz music groups and narratives construction in firms creating new markets are suggested.

                        Philosophy

                        Description

                        Philosophy is reflection – it advances our understanding of reality and our place within it by raising fundamental questions. Philosophers analyse concepts and claims that common sense and science take for granted. They investigate the conditions of human experience and understanding from the most comprehensive perspective, and they discuss our current norms, values, and practices. By exploring the facts and fictions of theoretical and practical rationality within science and society, philosophy provides the interpretive discourses and logical tools that allow us to generate and maintain transparency in how we reason about what we are and what we do.

                        The MA programme in philosophy at Aarhus University offers advanced courses in the main areas of contemporary professional philosophy, taught by professors with doctoral degrees from leading international departments including Cambridge, Canberra, Oxford, Pittsburgh, St Andrews, and Tübingen. The guiding principle of our curriculum is to offer our students a learning environment that encourages specialisation but never loses sight of general philosophical competencies: a learning environment that provides the best philosophical education and the best career opportunities.

                        Career Profile

                        Employers increasingly appreciate that philosophy graduates have outstanding transferable skills in analytical, innovative thinking. With a degree in philosophy you can create transparency in complex decision contexts and communicate complex subjects to a variety of audiences. Outside of academia our alumni are employed in education, IT, consultancy, and public administration. 

                        Admission

                        Physics

                        Description

                        You adjust the laboratory lasers before going to your next lecture on cold atoms. You feed your computer the latest measurements from the scanning tunnelling microscope, and see if the placement of the extra atoms on the surface matches your model calculation. You do some work on your model for a quantum computer, before going to the next lecture in quantum optics. Or perhaps right now you are at CERN for a week, running experiments with anti-protons to test new possibilities for radiation therapy, or predicting the fate of ultra-relativistic lead ions in the Large Hadron Collider.

                        Teaching in the MSc in Physics programme is greatly influenced, both in the courses and in the thesis work, by the fact that the lecturers are active researchers. In this context students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between faculty and students. When students write their thesis, they are connected with a group of researchers and participate in one or more of the group’s research projects. Students on the programme have a wide range of options for specialisation, both at the Department of Physics and Astronomy and via the department’s close collaboration with the Institute for Storage Ring Facilities (ISA) and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO). The department also has research groups working at several institutions outside Denmark, including a number of the major European laboratories.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        For many years, graduates from the Department of Physics and Astronomy have generally been able to find jobs immediately. There are numerous career options. A high proportion of recent graduates are now working in the private sector: graduates find jobs in leading consultancy firms and in a wide range of major companies. Increasing numbers of graduates find employment at hospitals; others pursue careers in research and academia.

                        Practising Business and Data Analytics

                        Description

                        This course is designed for management graduates based on experiencing a need of the industry for business analytics. Business analytics is an undervalued area, which recently picked up its pace and has demonstrated the impact of its use in businesses and has completely changed the way business is done in today’s world. Business executives and recruiters look for basic and advanced business analytical skills from graduates of almost every discipline. Businesses look for hands on practice, knowledge and experience for almost all type of profiles. This course is designed and meant to build a confidence in the students to demonstrate the required analytical skills, which can add value to businesses, and enhance the profitability of the organizations.

                        Multiple international consulting companies have started a dedicated department on business analytics, and serve the industry in multiple areas of consulting. Many industries have started operating with an in-house business analytics department, which controls the business data completely and works on it to find additional value that can be added to their business, in order to achieve a competitive edge in the market place.

                        The idea is to charge future industry practitioners, i.e. current management graduates, with the practical tools and instruments, which are already commonly available in the field, but which practitioners of today find themselves incapable of using effectively.

                        Prehistoric Archaeology

                        Description

                        The MA in Prehistoric Archaeology programme explores the prehistory of humans from their earliest traces in the Stone Age to the end of the Viking Age. The emphasis is on southern Scandinavian archaeology, but developments here are also related to the rest of Europe and beyond. Scandinavian archaeology has a long tradition and a unique find material. There are the spectacular shell mounds of the hunter-gatherers in the Mesolithic Age, thousands of megaliths and large causewayed enclosures constructed after the advent of agriculture, well-preserved oak log coffins from the Early Bronze Age, great mounds, intriguing rock carvings from the Late Bronze Age, the bog bodies and war booty sacrifices of the Iron Age, and the royal sites of the Viking Age, to mention just a few of the highlights. The MA in Prehistoric Archaeology programme offers an opportunity for in-depth study of these and other finds and the societies from which they came. 

                        Career Opportunities

                        Most graduates from the MA programme choose to work as archaeologists, mainly in museums, where they assume responsibility for excavations or for the dissemination of knowledge about the past or cultural issues in general. Some are employed within cultural administration, where their general analytical and theoretical abilities lead to very varied jobs. There is also the option of making a research career. You can apply for a PhD scholarship, either during the first year of the MA programme or after completing your MA thesis.

                        Privacy and Data Protection Law


                        Description

                        The globalization of the world economy, the ever-increasing importance of the Internet, and the growth of electronic commerce have made data protection and privacy law an important area of concern for businesses, governments, and individuals. At present, governments around the world are seeking increasing access to personal data for law enforcement and other purposes; companies are processing huge amounts of personal data; and many individuals publish their personal data on the Internet on a regular basis. Consequently most lawyers and legal advisers will come across privacy and data protection issues sooner or later in their work. Another consequence of these developments is that privacy and data protection law have grown from being national issues to ones of international concern.

                        EU law place a crucial role in this area since privacy and data protection issues are mainly harmonised. However, the divergence EU and US privacy and data protection regulation leads to a lot of complications in the international marketplace, especially when one considers that the volume of personally identifiable information that is exchanged online, a medium that knows no borders. Companies and individuals often face different legislations and are often left confused about what laws are applicable to them. Meanwhile, legislators continue to seek out ways to ensure that the protections that they have adopted will apply even when information is being collected and/or used by entities located outside the national territory. Ultimately, many individuals remain uncertain about the scope of their privacy rights and how to protect them.

                        Religious Roots of Europe

                        Description 

                        How were Judaism, Christianity and Islam formed? How did these three religions and their interaction shape European culture and society as they emerged? These are pivotal questions addressed in this international Master’s degree programme.

                        The interaction of Christianity, Judaism and Islam profoundly influenced the development of European culture and society. For centuries Christianity has been the dominant majority religion; as minority religions, Judaism and Islam have been seen as the ‘other’ against which Christian European identity has been shaped.

                        Traditionally, the three religions have been studied more or less separately. The aspiration of Religious Roots of Europe (RRE) is to study the three religions together in their formative periods from a comparative perspective and using a variety of approaches, including historical, philological, social scientific and literary. 


                        Career Opportunities  

                        Graduates of this programme are qualified to conduct innovative scholarly work and to continue in further education at doctoral level, as well as to teach religion and intercultural relations. Other possible career paths include specialised employment in government institutions or organisations working with culture, integration or diplomacy, and in business, for example in connection with the Middle East.

                        Expertise on the major religions and on their interaction and role in society and culture is increasingly recognised as important to society. The transition to a specific career – whether in a private company, a non-profit organisation or in public administration – is best achieved through ingenuity, openness and creativity.

                        Retail Management

                        Description


                        In today’s tough job environment more people are choosing to become entrepreneurs. One of the more popular ways to do this is to start up a retail store – either physical or online. The main objective of this course is to enable students to develop a full retail plan that they can use to begin a new business venture. In the process, students will learn not only how to plan a retail business, but how to deal with retailers from a business-to-business relationship.

                        In this exceptionally competitive environment, the majority of retailers are still small to medium sized businesses – many operated by entrepreneurs with little training or education for the task. To survive, operators continually need managers who are familiar with retail operations to survive and become profitable. Students will develop a retail plan that is competitive in the environment that they choose (Aarhus or another geographic location).

                        Second Language Acquisition

                        Description

                        This graduate course provides a survey of current theory and research in second language acquisition. Focus will be given to the major questions that SLA researchers have asked since the beginning of the discipline, and to the tacit and overt assumptions that inform SLA theories and research methodologies. We will examine how different traditions in SLA conceptualize language, learning, and their relation to social and psychological contexts, and how these different understandings translate into research methodology and research practice.

                        The course will also explore how second language learning unfolds in different arenas of social life and in the (language) classroom, and how L2 learning can be advanced through instructional intervention. As part of their coursework, students will read and discuss representative literature, critically review data-based studies, and develop their own research plans for the investigation of an SLA topic.

                        Six Sigma Design and Innovation

                        Description

                        Six Sigma Design (DFSS) & Innovation methods provide complementary approaches. When strategically linked these yield customer-driven, highly resource efficient processes and products with almost perfect performance. Integrated DFSS, Innovation, and Lean approaches provide a highly structured strategy for acquiring, assessing, and activating customer, competitor, and enterprise intelligence that lead to superior product, system or enterprise innovations and designs that provide the organization with a sustainable competitive advantage. Useful background for this course includes exposure to introductory statistical methods and quality management principles. Relevant software will be provided.

                        Six Sigma integrates strategies and tools from Statistics, Quality, Business, and Engineering and has added billions of Euros to the bottom line of organizations across the financial, healthcare, military, manufacturing, and other economic sectors. Its focus divides into two significant branches that share a number of tools, techniques and objectives, but often apply the tools and techniques differently. The Innovation branch focuses on significant innovation /redesign in or of existing products, processes, and systems while the second branch, referred to as Design for Six Sigma, is directed at design of new products, processes or systems. Six Sigma has developed largely in parallel with and complementary to Lean Enterprise Theory & Methods with a result often referred to as “Lean Six Sigma” wherein radical innovation in and/or design of products, processes and systems is approached through a “lean lens” that is intended to be highly resource sensitive. This course emphasizes both Innovation and Design for Six Sigma with a “lean and green” mindset and utilizes a team based project focus.

                        Beskrivelse


                        Fremtidens hospitalsvæsen kræver til stadighed nye, innovative tiltag for at kunne tilbyde borgerne den bedst mulige behandling. Denne interdisciplinære sommerskole sætter læge- og ingeniørstuderende sammen for at løse morgendagens problemer og opkvalificere samarbejdsevnerne mellem personalegrupperne.

                        Som deltagere på sommerskolen, vil I modtage et intensivt kursus i innovation - både i form af teoretisk, forskningsbaseret undervisning samt praktiske innovationsøvelser og ekskursioner. 

                        Udover innovation, byder sommerskolen også på praktiske øvelser og forelæsninger fra indbudte eksperter fra såvel industrien som universitetsverdenen. Øvelserne består fx i hands-on kurser i ultralydsskanning og billeddiagnostik samt 3D-skanning objekter og 3D-printning af redesignede udgaver på 3D printere.

                        Deltagerne bliver opdelt i tværfaglige grupper, som i løbet af sommerskolen skal gennemføre et innovationsforløb, beregnet på at opøve de interdisciplinære samarbejdsevner. I vil, i løbet af sommerskolen, blive præsenteret for teknikker til at generere/udvælge gode ideer. Disse skal I bruge til at udforske alskens mulige løsninger på fremtidens sundhedsmæssige udfordringer og til slut udvælge den bedste.

                        Den valgte løsning skal I arbejde med i gruppen og udvikle forretningsmodel, se på implementering, teknisk realiserbarhed og nyhedsværdi af jeres ide. Dette arbejde skal munde ud i et afsluttende pitch, der skal præsenteres for et panel af innovationseksperter, som vil evaluere jeres ide og komme med feedback derpå.

                        Sommerskolen evalueres med et bestået/ikke-bestået baseret på jeres aktive deltagelse i arbejdet undervejs. Undervisningen foregår uge 32-34 på alle hverdage mellem 8:30 og 16. For yderligere information omkring sommerskolen, kontakt Samuel Thrysøe på sat@ase.au.dk.

                        Statistics

                        Description

                        What should your home contents insurance cost? How many people will survive a particular disease? What are the odds of winning a game of solitaire?
                        The two-year MSc in Statistics is open to students from universities in Denmark and abroad. The programme is flexible, allowing students to specialise while at the same time acquiring general competencies in statistics. It is also possible to become a PhD student within the area. The MSc in Statistics programme is open to students with a bachelor’s degree with at least 60 ECTS credits in statistics.


                        Teaching in the programme is greatly influenced by research, as the lecturers are active researchers. In addition to lectures, the teaching includes theoretical and practical exercises. As a student of statistics, you have the opportunity to specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the areas of statistics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong – theoretical and applied statistics, and probability theory. In this context students benefit from the down-to-earth, informal relationship between faculty and students, particularly when working on the thesis in year two of the programme.

                        Career Opportunities  

                        There is an undersupply of statisticians. Statistics graduates from Aarhus University are very much in demand and their employment prospects are extremely good, whether in Aarhus, the rest of Denmark or abroad. Statistics students in Aarhus often take student jobs which in many cases lead to permanent employment upon completion of the degree.

                        Statistics graduates typically work at universities and research institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry, the telecommunications and finance sectors, or in insurance companies. In universities, statistics graduates are often engaged in interdisciplinary work with doctors, biologists or chemists, where they analyse large amounts of data; graduates also teach statistics to these professional groups. In the pharmaceutical industry, statisticians plan clinical trials or design methods for examining whether new drugs have unwanted side effects. In the insurance industry, statistics graduates typically work as actuaries and may contribute to working out tariffs. Common to all these jobs is the requirement for knowledge of a number of complicated mathematical models.

                        Storytelling som Strategisk Ledelsesværktøj? (In Danish)

                        Beskrivelse

                        ”Den fortællende organisation”, aktørerne i og omkring organisationen som udtryk for ”det historiefortællende menneske” samt de fortællingens elementer, som corporate storytelling trækker på og forstås igennem, udgør fagets genstandsområde.

                        Storytelling, således betragtet som narratologi i et organisationsperspektiv, vil i undervisningen blive tilgået som et centralt instrument til både at skabe strategi og til at kommunikere strategi. Herunder vil der blive fokuseret på:
                        • den narrative vending som en interdisciplinær proces
                        • den intradisciplinære vending inden for corporate storytelling fra narrativer til historier
                        • den fortællende organisations narratologiske værktøjskasse bestående af sproglige, dramaturgiske og diskursive strategier
                        • den fortællende organisations metodiske værktøjskasse
                        • storytelling som situationsbestemt kommunikationsaktivitet udfoldet omkring virksomhedsspecifikke udfordringer
                        • storytelling i forhold til flere af de teorifelter, der arbejdes med på kandidatuddannelsen i virksomhedskommunikation: organisationsteori, ledelsesteori, kulturteori, teori om corporate branding, identitetsteori, forandringskommunikation, CSR-kommunikation, krisekommunikation m.m.

                        Strategic Cost Management

                        Description

                        The course aims at providing the student with an understanding of how management/cost accounting information can support the key strategic management issues and processes in an organization. The course shifts the perspective of cost analysis from a tactical and short-run focus to strategic and long run issues. The relationship between cost analysis and strategy is established by using different strategic management tools. Drawing upon strategic management concepts, the course analyses business problems from a financial perspective, and attempts to establish relationship between cost analysis and strategic management concepts like; value chain analysis, strategic positioning analysis, and cost driver analysis, thereby culminating into the theme of Strategic Cost Management (SCM). SCM evolves as a supporting tool for decision makers involved in planning and implementing organizational strategies. Primarily, the course attempts to make students appreciate the strategic alignment of cost accounting information.

                        Strategic Human Ressource Management

                        Description

                        In the post-globalization business context one notices intense competition; only the most competent and sagacious will survive in the midst of chaos. Managers who lack people management skills are finding it difficult to build a culture of cooperation and high performance, which is the key reason of managerial failures in the present business world. Most companies do claim that their people are their greatest asset. In actuality, however, only some (e.g. Google, IBM, Southwest Airlines, Carlsberg, and British American Tobacco) genuinely practice this mantra through creation of people-centric ambiance. Companies that truly value their human resource (HR) are able to build employer brand, hire & retain competent employees, promote employee engagement, and build a conducive performance culture. Eventually, this approach helps produce the requisite people behaviors, attitudes, and mental models that are necessitated by high performance work systems and company’s business strategy.

                        In this context, this course has been designed with the aim of analysing strategic HR models; emerging HR themes and interventions; as also related scorecards, measures, targets and plans of action. The course underscores a conceptual framework that helps explain why some companies almost always adopt only hard, cost-reduction, and instrumentalist people policies; and in the process remain only short-termist in their approach. It also emphasizes that even several low-cost strategy companies have been following empowering, soft HR interventions for building sustainable competitive advantage.

                        Concretely speaking, three broad sets of issues are focused on in the course: articulating the strategic HRM context and linking it with trusting and empowering culture; discussing and understanding emerging HR focus areas that help promote sustainable competitive advantage;  and aligning the selected HR interventions with business strategy so as to build the employee and customer value proposition. Focus on these issues help shape the desired HR architecture for building a culture of competitive performance.

                        Strategic Management of Creativity and Innovation

                        Description

                        Innovation is the cornerstone of successful organizations and economies across the globe. Consider the growing pace at which we witness change in the natural environment as well as in the technological, commercial, social and geopolitical landscapes. This velocity is fueling the need for innovation, and the pace is expected to intensify in the foreseeable future.

                        Successful management of creativity and innovation is therefore critical in achieving sustainable competitive advantage. Most organizations have recognized this, but only a few have truly mastered the art.

                        Managing innovation requires specific skills, which remain uncommon. This course is geared towards those interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the issues underpinning creativity and innovation in organizations, as well as the ways in which creativity and innovation can be developed and managed successfully.

                        While theory frameworks will be reviewed during this course, the primary aim is to equip participants with state-of-the-art practical skills required to foster creativity and to design and execute sustainable innovation strategies.  As such course participants will be involved in a hands-on innovation project and a series of workshops where they will develop their understanding of creativity and innovation methodologies. By the end of the course you will have experienced the innovation process from unlocking your and your team’s creative potential and generating the initial idea to designing successful solutions and business models.

                        Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding

                        Description

                        The Erasmus Mundus double degree programme in Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding educates students to solve the animal nutrition challenges of the future. As the global demand for food increases and awareness of the environmental impact of agriculture grows, scientists and experts who can come up with solutions are in ever-greater demand. This degree offers a unique education for very talented students in a high-ranking international research environment that equips them to come up with the solutions of tomorrow.

                        Students choose courses from two out of four leading European universities (Aarhus University, EI Purpan, University of Debrecen and Wageningen University), and they receive degrees from both upon completion of the programme. The Aarhus specialism is an in-depth animal nutrition programme combined with a nutrient cycling programme. While animal nutrition and environmental protection are often studied, few programmes combine the two. This programme couples in-depth knowledge of the environment and nutrient cycling with animal nutrition. It teaches students to be aware of and to minimise the environmental impact of agriculture, while optimising health, welfare and product quality for the animals.
                         

                        Career Opportunities  

                        Graduates of this programme are in very high demand and can take advantage of Aarhus University’s extensive professional network and strong industry partnerships.

                        Text Mining the Great Undread - Data-Intensive Methods and Digital Tools for Analysis of Texts in Humanities and Social Sciences

                        Description

                        Texts have always been essential to research and education in the humanities and social sciences. Close reading and detailed interpretation have traditionally constituted the standard approach to texts, that is, we combine qualitative methods and theoretically motivated arguments to a small textual corpus with the purpose of understanding the meaning of that corpus. However, the rapid expansion of digital full-text databases, increasingly faster computers, and advances in language technology are starting to impact the standard approach by offering a new digital and data-intensive paradigm in the study of text. Humanities and social science researchers are beginning to ask new types of questions and propose novel solutions to old problems by using faster and more efficient methods to collect, analyze, and visualize texts.


                        Many students (as well as researchers) experience a lack of digital competences when faced with text mining, that is, the application of tools and methods to analyze large sets of digitized texts. This is unfortunate because text mining 1) enables students to extract high quality information and acquire new knowledge in a fast and efficient manner; and 2) enhances the qualifications of students for a data-driven job market that is relying on the very same tools and methods. Finally, many tools and methods in text mining are in need of a thorough revision by academics who understand the importance of text meaning and context. Academia and industry alike are therefore in great need of students with text mining skills. 

                        “Text Mining the Great Unread” is an introductory level course to text mining tools and methods in the humanities and social sciences, which will supply participants with sufficient knowledge and experience to develop and implement their own text mining projects. The core of the course is a series of hands-on workshops supplemented by lectures and tutorials by international researchers and industry experts. Through the course, participants will become familiar with text mining methods and software for analyzing and visualizing texts. Participants will learn how to write their own text mining application in R and Python. Through the workshops, participants will also be presented with a range of paradigmatic studies and go through explain research design, best practice, and reporting standards. It is possible to work with one’s own corpus, but historical and contemporary corpora (both works of fiction, historical documents and websites) are also available in class. Participants are not expected to have prior experience with text mining (i.e., programming, statistics, or visualization).

                        Text, Memory, Monument

                        Description


                        The Italian Renaissance (c. 1350–1550) is a key period in European cultural history. Italian Renaissance writers and artists were instrumental in modelling our view of the individual, of nature and the surrounding world, and by reviving a number of the literary and artistic idioms of classical antiquity they effectively decided the development of European art and literature for centuries after.

                        This international 2-week summer university course will show how Italian Renaissance Humanism produced a broad spectrum of new political, philosophical and scientific ideas, and artistic developments which became key elements in the formation of modern Europe. It will take advantage of its setting in Rome to explore the relevant sights of Ancient and Renaissance Rome. Teaching will be conducted by a team of experts in Renaissance Humanism, literature, philosophy, language and art.

                        The interdisciplinary scope of the course ensures that a large range of renaissance writers, artists and monuments will be discussed during lessons and visits.

                        Examples of relevant contemporary writers:

                        Francesco Petrarca, Giovanni Boccaccio, Leonardo Bruni, Leon Battista Alberti, Lorenzo Valla, Poggio Bracciolini, Marsilio Ficino, Benvenuto Cellini, Baldassare Castiglione, Ludovico Ariosto, Giorgio Vasari

                        Examples of relevant monuments and artists:

                        The Capitol, St Peter’s, the Vatican, Villa Giulia, Villa Farnesina, Castel St Angelo, San Pietro in Vincoli, Bramante, Perugino, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Luca Signorelli, Pinturicchio, Piero di Cosimo, Andrea Bregno, Raphael, Giulio Romano, Michelangelo 

                        The on-site course consists of the following modules:     
                        - Places of Power I: the Capitol and the heritage of republican Rome
                        - Places of Power II: the Vatican and the heritage of imperial Rome
                        - Places of study and leisure: palaces and villas, urban and rural lifestyle
                        - Images of man: portraits and biographies
                        - The Papacy and the Ottoman Turks

                        The course has been developed together with the Nordic Network for Renaissance Studies and is organised as a collaboration between the four Nordic institutes and the American University in Rome, and Aarhus University. The teachers are internationally established specialists in their fields. The course is open to qualified students from all countries.

                        Venue, Travel and Accommodation
                        The course takes place in Rome. Students arrange and pay for their own travel. The Nordic Institutes in Rome offer housing at an affordable price (more information will be provided to accepted participants). Participants will be charged a fee of appr. €50 to cover entry fees.

                        The Global Financial Crisis and its Lessons for Theory and Practice

                        Description


                        This course aims to give the student an overview of financial crises over the centuries, background and origin of the crises and recessions which seem to be a perennial feature of free market capitalism. The course will explore why mainstream economic theory has become inadequate as a framework for understanding the financial aspects of contemporary capitalism and the student will get to know the background and origin of the 2008 Crisis, the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression of 1929.

                        The relevance of the ideas of Keynes and Minsky, the lessons of the crisis and policy reform including monetary policy, financial regulation, macroprudential policy, fiscal policy and exchange rate and capital account management will be discussed in detail. Further, the course will cover experiences of policy reforms in the USA, the UK, EU, China and India.

                        Upon completion of the course students will be able to understand the factors that contributed to the Crisis and also its implications for the design of economic policy, short term and long term, in all its multifarious aspects.

                        Viking Age Scandinavia

                        Description

                        During the Viking Age (c. 750 – 1050 AD), Scandinavians suddenly enter the scene of the world known at that time. They were to leave their mark all over Europe and beyond, and contributed to shaping the world we live in today. The Viking Age stands as an essentially formative period of European history. The Scandinavians enter the world known at that time in many different ways. With their discovery and colonization of Iceland, Greenland and America the Vikings expand the borders of the known world. At the same time, the societies in the Viking homelands (Denmark, Norway and Sweden) go through a process of fundamental transformations, leading to the development of important places and institutions. In this way, the Vikings have left their mark and contributed to shaping the world that we are living in today, both in Scandinavia and most of Europe.

                        Viking Mythology: Long Term Structures and Change

                        Deacription

                        The Viking is, to this day, a popular and powerful figure in Western culture. Viking mythology has been popularized in comics and been misused politically with equal success, making central gods and goddesses such as Thor, Odin and Freya widely recognized today. Join this summer course to learn what Viking mythology really is, what our sources are – textual as well as material – and which methods are used to research them. Following the theme of this year, long term structures and change, students will be introduced particularly to the problems regarding the wide span in time and geography that is hidden beneath the seemingly unified concept of Viking mythology.

                        The aim of the course is to provide a broad understanding of Viking mythology through time. The course will introduce students to the sources of Viking mythology as well as interdisciplinary methods and research in the field with a particular focus on the question of continuity and change over distances in time and geography. The course is organized as a general introduction followed by individual in-depth lectures on subjects related to the theme of the course. The course is focused on literary studies and the study of religion, but will include various other perspectives such as archeology, history and research in the field Old English. Lecturers will be a mixture of leading senior researchers and younger cutting edge scholars in the field. An excursion to a Viking Age site will be organized for participants of this course.

                        Visual Media Production - Making Short Fiction Films


                        Description

                        This is a hands-on, learning-by-doing production course, in which participants will make two short fiction films with guidance and feedback at every stage of the creative process. The main focus is on storytelling, and for the final project (a 4-7 min. film), considerable attention will be given to developing a viable concept and then working up a storyboard/shooting script before production begins. 

                        Students will work in teams of approx. five participants per group and will gain experience with script development and such tasks as casting, location scouting, directing actors, camera work, lighting, sound recording, editing, etc. They will also meet such challenges as identifying and resolving storytelling problems as well as organizing and executing complex tasks while working as a team under the pressure of tight deadlines.

                        The conceptual framework for this course will be a non-formulaic narrative model based on the view that short film storytelling can best be described in terms of opposing properties that balance and complete one another in a dynamic interplay. An approach of this kind is not only tailor-made to the short film rather than designed for the mainstream feature film but also more open than the standard sequential models and also better suited to catching the most common beginner mistakes when short films are produced by student filmmakers.

                        There will be instruction in the use of our semi–professional cameras and editing program, and no previous experience with production equipment is necessary.

                        After a few introductory lectures, the course will consist primarily of group work with feedback from the teacher. There will be no exam per se.  Grades will be based on the productions and a report, 6-8 pages per participant. Each student will write one of the following sections of the report: a) script development; b) directing; c) camera work; d) editing; and e) the results of an audience test. This course can count as a HUMfag and all discussions will be conducted in English.

                        The first class meeting will be held on July 18 and the last one on August 12.

                        Between those dates, there will be work virtually every day. The reports will be due on August 19 but will be sent to me as electronic files and participants in the course will not have to remain in Aarhus after August 12.Required readings include a selection of articles and booklets by R. Raskin, provided as handouts:

                        Youth, Drugs and the Night-Time Economy

                        Description

                        Humans are very persistent and creative when it comes to altering their consciousness. For example, there is a long tradition in the Northern parts of South America for using Ayahuasca to establish contact with spirits, treat illnesses and divine the future. Segments of the working population in India have long used cannabis to dull the pains and tribulations of their workaday lives and induce moments of respite and well-being. And the Sufis are known for their use of whirling dance ceremonies to achieve ecstasy.

                        Among contemporary European youth, alcohol and other drugs are the preferred means of altering consciousness. These substances are mainly used on weekends in what is often referred to as the “night-time economy” or the “booze economy”, which includes pubs, bars, nightclubs, and music festivals. This course explores the link between youth, drugs and the night-time economy. Some of the key questions that will be discussed are the following: Why do young people intoxicate themselves? What are the most popular drugs among youth and how do these drugs affect the human organism? What are the positive and negative outcomes of drugs? How are drugs marketed and sold in the night-time economy? How can drug abuse be prevented and treated?

                        The course will introduce students to a wide array of scientific and theoretical approaches to the study of drugs. Each of these approaches will be explored in-depth with a special view on how they can improve our understanding of why young people across the world so eagerly and consistently intoxicate themselves.
