American Studies

Description

What does it mean to be an American? Is there a shared American culture, or is that just something Europeans imagine? Study the global superpower - and get the chance to experience it yourself.

Career Opportunities  

Our graduates have gone on to work in such diverse fields as high school teaching, government ministries, TV news consultants and PhD studies. Our graduates have such a variety of job possibilities because they have different BA degrees and because they are able to develop particular areas of expertise through their selection of elective courses, internships, terms abroad, and the topic of their MA thesis. 


About the programme


Due to the global reach of the United States, most Europeans have the impression that they “know” America, which is often perceived as a single culture, with little recognition of the complexity and variety that are characteristic of the nation.  

American Studies is a two year MA programme that focuses on the world's leading superpower. It looks at culture, politics, economics, literature, and society in a country of more than 300 million inhabitants in fifty distinct states.   

It represents an interdisciplinary study that draws on several disciplines in order to ensure that students can understand and analyse American cultural identities and the changing relationship between the United States and the rest of the world. The programme is intended to give you a broad spectrum of knowledge within the American Studies discipline.
 

Courses are taught by internationally recognised researchers who cover all aspects of American history, culture, politics, social studies, transnationalism, and literature. 

Course Content
 
The first semester requires all students to take three courses – one in history, one in cultural studies, and one in Theory and Method in American Studies.  

During the second semester, students take two thematic courses, one in history and politics, the other in literature and culture studies. For the remaining 10 ECTS, students may take up either an elective or an internship.  

The majority of elective courses are in participating departments, including history, political science, English, media studies, religion, journalism, and marketing.  

During the third semester, many students choose to complete internships either in Denmark or abroad, or spend the semester on exchange at a university overseas. SDU has many exchange agreements with American universities.

Admission  

You must hold a Bachelor's degree in a related subject. Previous backgrounds have included History, Politics, English Studies, Journalism and Law.
 

Students with other Bachelor´s degrees deemed of relevance by the Study Board will likewise be granted access to the MA in American Studies.

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. You must have qualifications in computer science corresponding to at least 100 ECTS.

The specialization gives a solid, coherent knowledge about business economics in an international perspective. In addition the course of studies is an ideal foundation for further training and specialisation. 
Bachelors in Business Administration (BSc) and masters in business administration (MSc) have excellent opportunities for employment in companies of all types. By far the majority gain employment in the private sector, in industry, trade and service, but business organisations and public enterprises also employ graduates with these degrees. 

About the programme

The business world is becoming increasingly internationalized. Today, this goes not only for major conglomerates, but for many small and medium-sized companies as well. This development challenges the received ideas about knowledge of business economics and language skills.

During the third year, students have the opportunity to choose a company internship or a study term abroad taking advantage of our extensive network of partner institutions.
The programme ends with a bachelor’s project during the sixth term. This offers you the opportunity – usually in collaboration with a business or an organization – to put into practice the knowledge you have acquired. The project therefore makes it possible for you to specialize in one or the subjects or one of the areas you have become particularly interested in during your studies.

Rooted in political science and law, this programme enables the student to work in both public and private organisations that engage in areas of conflict and which for this reason need to assess the dynamics of the conflict, need to identify possible venues of action, and which must be cognizant of repercussions in the international domain.

  • The ability to develop independent and original assessments of conflicts, policy options, and international repercussions;
  • The ability to develop cross-disciplinary team work to generate broader and ongoing conflict assessments;

  • The skills required to occupy central and important positions in these organizations and thus to help prioritise, organise and sustain the organisation’s analytical capacity.


Career Opportunities

With a Master of Social Sciences in International Security and Law you will be primed for a career in organisations that are involved in analysing, managing, and solving conflicts. It can be private or public organisations, and it can be organisations that are purely analytical or more broadly engaged in all dimensions of conflicts.
Possible job openings could be in:

  • Central ministerial organisations, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Development Affairs, the Ministry of Defence, as well as emergency management agencies.
  • International organisations such as the UN and its agencies, or the EU, NATO, the OSCE, or the World Bank.
  • Non-governmental organisations such as the Red Cross and the International Crisis Group.
  • Large private companies with interests in areas of conflict, typically in the domains of shipping and transportation or energy and resource extraction.
  • Or as an advisor to policy-makers and practitioners who grapple with a particular conflict or crisis area (such as Haiti, Somalia, or Afghanistan) and who need to augment standing organisational capacities on a case-by-case basis.


Admission

Man’s interaction with the sea dates back to the beginning of time. In recent years, marine archaeologists have discovered vital clues as to early civilisations by examining historical remains once lost at sea. As new technologies advance the search, many more discoveries lie ahead.

Career Opportunities

The Masters programme was created with employability in mind.  
With international teaching staff with backgrounds in heritage management, commercial diving and contract archaeology, our aim is not just to provide an education in Maritime Archaeology, but to prepare you for a career in this field.

The programme offers training in project management, law and economics. Students are encouraged to use empirical and theoretical approaches in examining the cultural and historical importance of the sea. The programme also gives students splendid opportunities to work with the broad spectrum of methods in the field of maritime heritage.
