Computer Science

Description

Do you want to be part of the rapid development in the world of IT, be it in computer game programming, bioinformatics, databases, algorithms, operative systems, super computers or web technology? 
And do you want an IT-degree which will not be obsolete just because someone introduces a new programming language or a new interface?

If your answer to both questions is yes, the programme in Computer Science is the obvious choice for you.

In the Master’s programme in Computer Science, you continue developing your insight into scientific theories and methods, your experience with working independently with complex problems (business related or scientific questions) as well as your ability to express yourself clearly on academic subjects and mediate these to others.

Thus, the Master’s programme qualifies you to participate in scientific works and independently undertake business functions based on these abilities.

Career Opportunities  

With a degree in Computer Science, you can handle many different types of jobs and you will have the qualifications to gain new, complex skills independently.

You will play a part in developing new variants of central algorithms and data structures and thereby help construct computer hardware and operative systems. The solid academic base which you gain through your education means that you can adapt to many environments.

About the Degree

The scientific aspect of the Master’s programme is most evident in the final thesis project which lasts a year. Work on the project is done in close contact with a supervisor and often in connection to the supervisor’s own research. It must be said, though, that the Master’s programme is not a research degree as such. To achieve these credentials, you must complete a PhD programme.

A large part of the Master's programme in Computer Science consists of elective courses, the offer of which is updated every quarter. This allows you to piece together a very focused degree, regardless of whether you aim for a job in the business sector or in teaching and research. See programme outline


Admission  

To be admitted to this programme, you must hold a Bachelor's degree or other degree based on at least three years of higher education after the high school level with good grades in Computer Science and Mathematics. 

In addition, documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level.

Social Sciences in Comparative Public Policy and Welfare Studies

Description

Why are some societies more unequal than others? How can we explain high levels of unemployment and soaring budget deficits? Why do women participate in the labour market in some countries, but largely stay at home in others? Why do health care and other public services differ in their quality across developed societies? The answers to these questions are all related to the welfare state.

The development of the modern welfare state has profoundly transformed societies in the 20th century. In the Western World, it has laid the foundation for peace and stability and helped to establish fundamental principles such as gender equality and social mobility. More recently, Asian and Latin American countries have embraced the concept and developed ambitious welfare state programmes.

Hence, all over the world welfare states fundamentally shape the functioning of societies. At the same time, they are subject to intense political conflict and exposed to multiple pressures for change. Understanding the roots of the modern welfare state as well as its effects and main challenges therefore is essential in learning about the future of societies.
