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

Courses provide a strong theoretical background in subjects such as carbon and nutrient cycling and the agro-environmental management al farm and landscape scale. In the second year, students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in their thesis project.

AN IDEAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Denmark, a country that produces three times as much food as it consumes, is an ideal location for studying agricultural systems. Its agricultural history and long-standing strict environmental regulations means that students have many practical examples and a large existing body of research to draw from. Aarhus University is alone in offering this specific degree.

The programme looks at topics such as carbon cycling and climate change; nutrient cycling and environmental management; environmental effects of various types of production; soil ecosystem services; xenobiotics; use of natural resources; geographic information systems; environmental legislation and regulation; and nature restoration.

These topics are of global relevance. Combined with the considerable Danish expertise and experience in this area, this means that the degree programme attracts students from all over the world. We therefore guarantee that, as a student on the Agro-Environmental Management MSc programme, you will be challenged and stimulated at both the scientific and social level. In the course of the programme, each student will be connected with relevant research groups in connection with their project work or thesis work.

A mixture of Danish and international students provides an optimal environment for peer-to-peer learning. Danes can share their experience of working in a highly regulated industry with strong environmental protections, and international students can bring both problems and solutions from their home countries to the discussions, an opportunity that will prepare all students to work in a globalised world.

INTERNATIONAL MASTER OF SCIENCE IN SOILS & GLOBAL CHANGE

From 2020, some of the courses will be organised in collaboration with the International Master of Science in Soils and Global Change (IMSOGLO), a European Erasmus Mundus joint master degree programme. The Master’s programme is a collaboration between Aarhus University and three other European universities. It covers the interactions of soils with global change, both in terms of changing climate and changing land use. More information can be found here: www.masters.au.dk/soilsandglobalchange

CAREERS

Graduates of this programme go on to work in advisory services, for city or regional administration, 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 continue studying for a PhD degree.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students should have a strong bachelor’s in agriculture, biology, geography, economy, environmental science, or a similar discipline.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme.

Website https://masters.au.dk/agrobiology
Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus in the Agrobiology programme at Aarhus University. Topics of study are genetics, biotechnology, production systems, and the interaction of agriculture with nature, among others. The programme is broadly science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving, and takes an integrative approach to learning about the biology of food production.

A CROSS-SECTORAL APPROACH

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, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary education, students can also choose courses from other academic programmes.

Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills, how to do research, and how to generate new knowledge. In this programme emphasis is placed as much on academic and professional skills as on applied skills.

AN INTERNATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

International students make up roughly one-third of each class, providing students with international knowledge and perspectives and the possibility to learn about different academic and agricultural environments. Because agriculture industries and environmental impacts are international, it is natural to include different national perspectives in discussions about these topics.

Denmark is an ideal place to study agriculture because of its huge food production industry, extensive agricultural research, and strict environmental regulations. International students gain the chance to learn from leaders in sustainable food production, and Danish students can learn about conditions outside Denmark.

A WORLD RESEARCH LEADER

Aarhus University’s research in agricultural sciences is cutting-edge and puts it in the front rank of agricultural science institutions worldwide. The core areas of research are: climate and natural resources, environment and bioenergy, organic farming, food quality, farm animal production, and plant production.

Sustainability is a fundamental principle. The goal is to seek solutions that contribute to environmentally and economically sustainable development of the agricultural and food industries.

CAREERS

Most students who complete this programme find employment in the private sector as consultants or in R&D. Other career possibilities include feed or supply companies, plant and animal genetics and breeding, plant protection, teaching, and working with authorities to develop or enforce industry regulations.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

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.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of agrobiology, chemistry, biochemistry, cytology, zoology, botany, mathematics, statistics, and probability calculus. The programme attracts students who like applied sciences, have an interest in farming and agriculture, and want to make a difference.

IN THE RANKINGS

Agricultural sciences by subject at Aarhus University rank twenty-second in the world in the 2020 US News Best Global Universities ranking, and in the 2019 National Taiwan University ranking are nineteenth in Agricultural Sciences by subject. Agriculture and Forestry at AU is ranked thirty-fifth in the 2020 QS World University Rankings by subject.

Website https://masters.au.dk/astronomy
Measurements flow in every day from satellites in space and from observatories all over the world. Students on the MSc in Astronomy programme are actively involved in research and in the discussion of new discoveries and theories. They study new planets orbiting other stars, examine the structure and development of the stars through seismological studies, and explore the earliest stages of the development of the universe, working with computer modelling or measurements from state-of-the-art telescopes and satellites.

RESEARCH AND COLLABORATION

Teaching on the astronomy programme is greatly influenced by research, both in the courses and the thesis work, as the lecturers are active researchers. In this context, students benefit from the down-to- earth, informal relationship between the academic staff and students. Each student is associated with a group of researchers for their thesis work in year two, and there is wide scope for specialisation, both within the Department of Physics and Astronomy and (thanks to the department’s close collaborations with other centres) with researchers from the European Southern Observatory, the European Space Agency, and NASA.

SPECIALISATION

The MSc in Astronomy programme is open to students with a BSc degree in physics or another BSc degree in science with substantial physics and mathematics content. The programme is challenging and research-oriented, and reflects the interests of the private sector, research institutions, and the public sector. It is also flexible, and can accommodate the interests and profile of the individual student.

Students can specialise in (for example) helio-and asteroseismology, extra solar planet research, galactic structure, compact objects, or cosmology. The programme qualifies students for a career in research: students may apply for admission to the university’s PhD programme either during the first year of the MSc programme or on completion of their thesis.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Physics and Astronomy aims to create a good student environment both in terms of working methods and in the social environment and facilities. When you write your master’s thesis in one of the department’s research groups, you will be given your own desk in an office that you will share with other students.

The department also has many social and academic associations with their own festive traditions. They organise events like the “hat party,” celebrating the most recent graduates. There is also the Physics Friday bar, where students get together at the end of the week to enjoy a drink and a catch-up.

CAREERS

As a graduate of the MSc programme in astronomy, a wide range of career opportunities will be open to you. Our graduates work in a variety of positions in the private sector, e.g. as data scientists, as researcher, or as software developer. Astronomy graduates also work in public research institutions such as universities, the European Southern Observatory, or the European Space Agency.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students must have a bachelor of science degree, preferably in physics. Admission may be granted based on a BSc in another field provided this includes core courses in physics and astronomy totalling a minimum of 60 ECTS, as well as basic subject components in mathematics and statistics totalling at least 30 ECTS. Other qualifications may also give admission to the Master’s programme, provided the university assesses their level, extent, and content as corresponding to the requirements stated above.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

The International Master’s in Biodiversity Ecology and Evolution – IMABEE – is a two-year research-oriented master’s programme for talented and motivated students who want to understand and work in the field of biodiversity, ecology, and evolution. This is a joint programme between four European universities: The University of Rennes 1 in France, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the University of Göttingen in Germany, and Aarhus University in Denmark. On completion of the programme, students are awarded a double degree from the two partner universities selected.

BUILD YOUR OWN STUDY PLAN

IMABEE offers students the opportunity to compose an individual study programme in biodiversity, ecology, and evolution by combining elements from complementary programmes at the two selected partner universities. Students spend their first year at their home university, then the second year at their chosen host university among the four partners.

The Master’s programme is built upon existing master’s tracks within each partner university and involves three stages: a starting track during semesters one and two, advanced teaching modules in semester three, and a Master’s thesis project in semester four.

STUDENT LIFE

As a student in the Master’s programme at Aarhus University, you will have close contact with your lecturers, who are conducting their own research and working with the latest knowledge in their field. This gives you the opportunity to work with research groups and in an international research environment.

The Department of Bioscience, in which IMABEE is located, has a great student environment with both academic and social activities. The department has its own student-run newsletter, as well as a student committee that keeps students informed about departmental activities. Student organisations in the department organise academic activities, excursions, celebrations, and social events.

CAREERS

The IMABEE Master’s provides students with an advanced understanding of biodiversity, ecology, and evolution by applying a multidisciplinary approach. Over and above general competence in academic approach and skills, graduates of the IMABEE Master’s will acquire specific competencies and knowledge in the following areas: the main theories, concepts, and tools of scientific ecology, biodiversity, and evolution; methods of statistical analysis; modelling; molecular tools; sampling protocols; experimental techniques in situ or in the lab; field and lab observations; and long-term monitoring.

This international master’s degree is designed to prepare graduates for the research activities carried out by researchers, engineers, and R&D managers, but it also offers the possibility of pursuing other careers such as ecological consulting or working in government institutions or local or regional public administration.

Graduates will be able to work in the fields of R&D, patents, technological monitoring, advice and expertise in public and/or private research structures, and also within a range of national and international institutions. IMABEE graduates will also be trained to efficiently start and handle a PhD project.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Graduates with a high-profile bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS or three years or equivalent) in biodiversity, ecology or evolution with outstanding study results and an above-average GPA are eligible for admission to the IMABEE programme. A bachelor of science in biology from Aarhus University, the University of Southern Denmark, or the University of Copenhagen will qualify students for admission; a bachelor of science with subject components in biology equalling 60 ECTS credits and basic subject components in mathematics, chemistry, and statistics may also qualify students for admission. Other qualifications are subject to the university’s assessment that they are equivalent in level, extent, and content to the degrees named above.

English is the language of instruction in all subjects, and all applicants are therefore required to provide evidence of their English-language proficiency.

SELECTION CRITERIA

There are a limited number of places on the programme. Applicants will therefore be assessed on the basis of their study results in subjects relevant to biodiversity, ecology, and evolution, as well as the motivation letter for acceptance into the programme.

Bioinformatics | Master 2 years

Bioinformatics

Master (2 years) of Science in Bioinformatics, 120 ECTS
Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 14800 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/bioinformatics
A fusion of biology, statistics, and computer science, the MSc in Bioinformatics programme explores the development and application of computational solutions for analysing and handling biological and biomedical data. A successful bioinformatics solution combines theoretical and practical knowledge from several areas of science, including biology, statistics, and computer science – a network of competencies that students will acquire through this programme.

FINDING SOLUTIONS

The field of bioinformatics plays a key role in modern biology and biomedicine, fields in which collecting and analysing large data sets is essential. To address the challenges of big data in modern biology and biomedicine, a bioinformatician must combine practical and theoretical skills in statistical modelling and computer programming with a deep knowledge of biology and biomedicine. This programme gives students the necessary skills to tackle these challenges.

Teaching is greatly influenced by the innovative bioinformatics research taking place at Aarhus University, where all lecturers are also active researchers. AU has strong research groups within many areas of bioinformatics, including evolutionary bioinformatics (the study of how and in what way genomes or hereditary material in organisms develop over the course of time) and medical bioinformatics (the study of the correlations between diseases and genetic factors).

The bioinformatics programme at AU is based at the Bioinformatics Research Centre (BiRC), which focuses on the challenges involved in large-scale genomics and population genetics, including statistical modelling, algorithmic development, machine learning, and high-performance computing.

STUDENT LIFE

Bioinformatics students are affiliated with the Bioinformatics Research Centre, a vibrant community with lots of regular academic and social activities for both students and staff. Students meet their peers from the other AU science programmes through joint lectures, and can participate in activities with students from programmes such as Molecular Biology, Biology or Computer Science. A number of student organisations also arrange academic activities, as well as excursions, celebrations, and social get-togethers.

CAREERS

Graduates with a Master’s in Bioinformatics are equipped not only to work as bioinformatics specialists in the biotechnology industry, but also in additional areas in which computational skills in analysing large amounts of data are essential. They are also in demand among employers in the IT industry as potential software developers.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students are qualified to apply if their Bachelor’s degree contains 15 ECTS within the fields of mathematics and statistics, 15 ECTS within either programming and algorithmics or molecular biology and genetics, and an additional 60 ECTS within one of the above topics or bioinformatics.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of Bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the Bachelor’s degree. Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of bioinformatics, mathematics and statistics, programming and algorithmics, and molecular biology and genetics.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

With a combination of two specialisations, elective courses, and projects, there are many ways to structure your Bioinformatics Master’s programme. All students must write a thesis (30 ECTS) and produce a 10 ECTS project. All students must also follow a mandatory course in either computational thinking or molecular evolution depending on their background. The mandatory course can be part of a specialisation, which makes it possible to have one more elective course. The 10 ECTS project can be scheduled in any semester, which makes it possible to study abroad during the third semester.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

In general, admission to a master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS).

Enhancing the fundamental biological knowledge gained in your bachelor’s degree, you will experience many combinations of theory, observation, and experimental research during the Master’s programme, which consists of laboratory work, field excursions, lectures, and seminars.

BUILD YOUR OWN STUDY PLAN

On commencing the programme, you compose your own individual study plan from a wide range of courses. The considerable freedom of choice offered is an excellent opportunity for in-depth study in one of the many disciplines within biology – genetics, evolution, ecology, ecophysiology, aquatic biology, microbiology, or ecosystem function and management.

Depending on which specialisation you choose, you will get the opportunity to work on field stations in Denmark, in the Arctic region or on Aarhus University’s research vessel, Aurora.

STUDENT LIFE

During your time as a student in the Master’s programme in Biology you will have close contact with the lecturers, who are conducting research and working with the latest knowledge within their academic field. This gives you the opportunity to work with research groups and in an international research environment.

The Department of Biology has a great student environment. The focal point for many extra-curricular activities at Biology is the “House of Biology,” with a lounge, a study hall, and meeting rooms where students gather for both academic and social activities.

The department has its own student-run newsletter as well as a student committee that keeps students informed about departmental activities. Several student organisations in the department organise academic activities, excursions, celebrations, and social events.

CAREERS

Aarhus University prepares biology graduates for the regional, national, and international job markets. Graduates in biology find work across a wide range of fields and institutions: mostly within teaching, administration, and consultancy, but also in research and communication in both private and public sectors. Biologists work across many fields, ranging from biotechnology, nature, and the environment to biological production within agriculture and the fishing industry. Many work as consultants or environmental officers in the field of environmental administration and management. Some biology graduates have found work in the media and publishing world, or as nature consultants.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students must have a bachelor of science degree with subject components in biology equalling 60 ECTS credits, as well as basic subject components in mathematics, chemistry, and statistics. Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include modules from the natural sciences including life sciences, mathematics, chemistry, and statistics.

Website https://masters.au.dk/business-administration/businesspsychology
The MSc in Business Administration - Business Psychology addresses the increasing demand for business professionals with a deep understanding of psychology in a business context. It does so by adding a business psychology specialisation on top of a solid business foundation gained at the bachelor’s degree level.

OVERVIEW

The MSc in Business Administration – Business Psychology is a cross-disciplinary programme where students are taught by lecturers from management, economics and psychology. To ensure professional relevance, the programme has been developed in collaboration with professionals working in areas related to business psychology.

The MSc in Business Administration - Business Psychology prepares students to perform in contemporary HR and communication functions, as organisational and change management consultants, in executive management support functions, or as project managers – both within the private and public sector.

DEEP PSYCHOLOGICAL UNDERSTANDING OF MODERN BUSINESSES

Contemporary businesses are operating in highly competitive environments and are solving increasingly complex problems requiring cooperation within and across skill sets, functions and organisations. Work is more than ever performed in teams, responsibility is largely delegated, and organisations go through major changes at an increased frequency.

As a result, it is imperative for businesses to develop a profound understanding of human behaviour and psychology to sustain their performance, ensure employee well-being, effectively implement organisational changes, formulate strategies for altering behaviours, foresee the consequences of delegation, and communicate within organisations as well as with external stakeholders.

To fulfil these needs, the first two semesters provide students with knowledge of the psychological and behavioural foundations of decision-making, communication, stakeholder relations, and moral judgement, as well as workplace psychology, behavioural design, and methods and tools relevant to business psychology. Each course in the programme is cross-disciplinary by design.

In their third semester, students are free to choose between elective subjects or an internship. Finally, students use their fourth semester to write their master’s thesis.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The programme consists of two semesters in the first year which cover the compulsory courses in the programme specialisation and two semesters in the last year which are reserved for the student's own specialisation.  

In the third semester you can choose elective courses within your areas of interest. You can also participate in project-based internship programmes either in Denmark or abroad. The fourth semester is devoted to the final thesis.  

Compulsory courses include:
  • Judgement and Decision-Making
  • Workplace Psychology
  • Organisational Theory
  • Communication Psychology
  • Organisational Interventions
  • Business Psychology Methods

The MSc programme in Chemistry lets students specialise in their chosen area of interest while building strong foundational knowledge in the field. Students can construct their own unique programme with courses from various branches of chemistry such as organic chemistry, NMR spectroscopy, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, theoretical chemistry, and physical and materials chemistry. Courses and research opportunities are constantly reviewed, not only to make sure they reflect the needs and demands of business and industry, research institutions, and the public sector, but also to contribute to solving societal challenges. The MSc programme is challenging, yet highly rewarding.

LEARNING FROM LEADERS IN THE FIELD

Course content is heavily influenced by the research currently being conducted at Aarhus University, as all lecturers are also active researchers. Students are expected to take part in fundamental research projects with the department’s research groups, and there may also be opportunities to work with private companies or public institutions during their studies.  

Students will be able to specialise within one of the areas of chemistry in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: synthesis and analysis of new organic substances; nuclear magnetic resonance studies; X-ray and laser spectroscopy; computer simulations for investigations; calculations of molecular properties, reaction mechanisms; atmospheric chemistry; and materials – synthesis, structure, properties, and new materials.

Interdisciplinary research themes include life chemistry, functional materials and energy, and environment and climate. Students in the programme have access to high-quality laboratory equipment and tools that will allow them to engage in hands-on learning at the cutting edge of science.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

Students in the MSc Chemistry programme participate in courses during the first year and then complete their studies with a second year of independent research undertaken within a research group. The research project is supervised by a researcher in the department, and may be carried out in collaboration with an external partner.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Chemistry has an active student environment, with both academic and social activities arranged by our student organisations. During your time as a master’s student you will be working closely with team members in one of the research groups, as well as participating in the academic and social events of the group.

CAREERS

There are more chemistry openings in Denmark than there are domestic graduates to fill them, making unemployment very low for graduates in chemistry.

Graduates from the MSc Chemistry programme typically find work in research, development, teaching, communication, or consulting in both public and private sectors. Aarhus University alumni have found interesting careers with a broad range of companies including Haldor Topsøe, Novo Nordisk, Eurofins, DuPont, Arla, Chr. Hansen, Vestas, and LEGO.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students must have a bachelor’s degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in Chemistry. Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s programme, subject to the university’s assessment that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.  

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of chemistry, mathematics, physics, and statistics.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

In general, admission to a master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS).

Cognitive Science | Master 2 years

Cognitive Science

Master (2 years) of Master in Cognitive Science, 120 ECTS
Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts Interdisciplinary Studies

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 9200 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/cognitivescience
Cognitive Science is the study of the human mind, brain, and behaviour. Cognitive scientists use advanced statistical modelling and sensitive experimental methods to reveal the nature of cognitive processes. They do this to advance our knowledge of human thought and behaviour and apply this knowledge in real-world settings.

Cognitive scientists are trained to develop a rigorous theoretical understanding of topics such as human decision-making, problem-solving, language and communication, action and movement, and attention and perception. They are trained to use experimental methods including functional brain imaging, eye-tracking, behavioural experiments, and computational modelling.

PROGRAMME CONTENT

Aarhus University’s MSc in Cognitive Science is Denmark’s first advanced cognitive science degree programme. It builds on our successful BSc in Cognitive Science and is designed to provide students with the advanced knowledge and methods required to work in the field.

Students in the MSc will learn how to develop their own computational models of behaviour, how to process natural language and text data, and how to analyse very large datasets. They will complete advanced courses in neuroscience and neuroimaging, human decision-making, and human–machine interaction. Classes and exams are heavily project-based and are designed to allow students to develop a rich portfolio of project work during their study.

During the programme, students will have the opportunity to use their training in project placements with other organisations. They may also have the opportunity to develop these projects further in their MSc thesis.

For their thesis, students may develop their own research project, or they may choose to complete their thesis work in the context of one of the many research centres and funded projects that make up the rich cognitive science research environment at Aarhus University.

CAREERS

Graduates from the MSc programme are trained to enter any field that requires skills in experimental design and statistical modelling of human behaviour. They will be particularly well suited to careers in the following four sectors:

  • Consumer cognition: with their knowledge of how people perceive and pay attention to their environment and how they make decisions, cognitive science graduates will be well qualified to assist organisations in developing more engaging products and marketing materials.
  • Cognitive analytics: with their skills in advanced statistical modelling, combined with their ability to apply those skills to explain complex human behaviour, cognitive science graduates will be well qualified to assist organisations in maximising the use of existing databases to develop new strategies and products.
  • Design of information technology: with their specific skills in analysing human–machine interaction, cognitive science graduates will be well qualified to assist companies in developing new technologies for human use in both the design and testing phase of research and development.
  • Sensory science: with their detailed knowledge of how the brain transforms light, sound, and chemical energy into sensory information and how it combines that information into perceptions of the world, cognitive science graduates will be well qualified for R&D in the food industry and audio technology.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

In general, admission to a master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS). In addition, you must meet the specific requirements for the individual programme, including language requirements.

Cognitive Science | Bachelor 3 years

Cognitive Science

Bachelor of Cognitive Science, 180 ECTS
Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts Interdisciplinary Studies

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 3 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8500 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://bachelor.au.dk/en/cognitivescience
Cognitive Science is the study of the human mind and how it shapes and is shaped by our experiences and interactions. Students of Cognitive Science are introduced to the basic cognitive processes underlying our conscious and unconscious perceptions and actions – how we make decisions, how we use language to communicate and share emotions, how we interact socially with others. This involves learning scientific theories as well as engaging in practical exercises where students use computer programming and statistics to design and carry out their own investigations of the human mind, the brain, and human behaviour.

AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ENDEAVOUR

The mind is hugely complex, and no single discipline can hope to exhaustively understand it. Cognitive Science combines theories, methods, and insights from a range of disciplines such as neuroscience, philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, and psychology in a coordinated effort to investigate human behaviour and the human mind.

Teaching is organised around lectures and group sessions in which students participate in discussions, make presentations, and work in study groups. Students also take part in practical lab work where they learn to analyse data from brain scans, behavioural experiments, and large text databases using computer programming and statistics.

The Cognitive Science programme is embedded in a rich research environment surrounding Aarhus University’s Centre for Functionally Integrative Neuroscience, its Interacting Minds Centre, and its Centre for Semiotics. Students can attend research seminars and learn about new findings on an almost daily basis.

CAREERS

On completing the BSc in Cognitive Science, you will be able to choose from a range of master’s programmes offering specialisation in topics such as cognitive science, neuroscience, information studies or corporate communication. The interdisciplinary profile of the programme, combined with the concrete skills acquired in data acquisition, programming, and analysis, make graduates sought after by employers across a wide range of industries, including IT development, product design, neuroscience, consumer behaviour, and business analytics.

DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS, COGNITIVE SCIENCE AND SEMIOTICS

The Department of Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Semiotics is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture at the Faculty of Arts.

Teaching in the department is not only research-based, but also research-oriented. Students are encouraged to collect and analyse data and to design and carry out experiments, either alone or in cooperation with the research staff. Students may even have their research published. Students regularly present their research to fellow students and staff at research seminars.

Economics and Business Administration (Herning)

Bachelor of Economics and Business Administration, 180 ECTS
Economics, commerce, management and accounting

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Herning
Duration 3 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8500 EUR
Website https://bachelor.au.dk/en/economics-and-business-administration-auhe
This programme aims to give students a broad introduction to a number of economic, legal, and organisational issues within the field of business. In addition to business issues, the programme also considers socioeconomic aspects and the interaction between economics and business administration.

In specific terms, students learn to analyse a company’s financial problems and issues and to develop business strategies.

Students also learn about organisation, marketing, logistics, accounting, project management, and innovation. They will develop insight into the theories and methods used to understand companies’ internal and external relations.

The programme brings together students who share a common interest in what goes on in companies, organisations, and in society at large.

Some students will be crazy about everything relating to stocks and bonds, others are mostly interested in management – but all will share a fundamental interest in business administration.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE, TEAMWORK AND PROJECTS

The programme offered in Herning will to a significant extent be connected to local and national business, so that students learn how business theory makes contact with real world business cases. At the same time the programme emphasises empirically oriented group work and projects. Through project-based teamwork, students will learn how to act as business professionals in teams.

The programme taught in Herning thus combines courses focused on cases and teams, with classic business courses identical to the programme in Aarhus. These classic courses teach financial and managerial accounting, organisation, micro- and macroeconomics, marketing, finance, operations management, industrial organisation, and strategy. There are also a number of prerequisite courses in mathematics and statistics.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

CAREERS

Graduates of the programme have everything they need to handle business administration issues in both multinational and international companies – whether in trade and industry, the service sector, financial institutions, or in accountancy or consultancy. The degree also qualifies graduates for further studies at master’s level in Denmark or abroad.

UNIQUE PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The MSc in Finance is a unique programme in which you will be working with internationally respected academic staff in an international environment. In the first year the programme addresses the key concepts of asset pricing, corporate finance, financial intermediation and financial derivatives modelling so as to familiarise you with the challenges of the financial markets. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or at one of three hundred partner universities abroad as an exchange student. You will also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

QUALITY TEACHING IN AN INFORMAL SETTING

The MSc in Finance is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

OSCM is about planning and controlling the activities of a company as well as coordination between companies, in order to secure that the right product is delivered in the right quantities, to the right customer, at the right time, and at the right price. OSCM is one of most critical factors in the long-term success of a business. OSCM decisions involve sourcing, materials management, operations planning, distribution and logistics planning, sales and demand forecasting, order fulfilment, etc. A business with an efficient and effective operations and supply chain may significantly reduce all of the operating expenses, which contributes to a greater profit. Analytics helps realise business objectives by analysing data to create predictive models for forecasting and optimising business processes for enhanced performance. The successful applications of OSCA drive business innovation and help companies to stay competitive.

ACQUIRED SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES

The OSCA programme aims at providing you with theoretical foundation, quantitative analytical skills, and hand-on experience to challenge and solve complex OSCM problems. As an Operations and Supply Chain Analyst, you will need insight into digital analytics tools to be able to handle and transform diverse pieces of information and data, and then model and solve problems.

The programme provides you with an in-depth knowledge about:
  • Strategy design and performance improvement in OSCM
  • Methods for planning and controlling the flow of goods and information in a company or across supply chains
  • IT-based tools and how to work with data, matching the increased focus on digitalised and data-driven decision-making in OSCM.
The programme prepares you for managerial and consulting roles within OSCM and provides you with analytical skills that enable you to appraise, systematically structure, and analyse the possible solutions to complex problems in operations and supply chains, so that right decisions can be made. The teaching format of the programme encourages student participation. Furthermore, an internship and Master’s thesis will provide you with self-management and communication skills.

CAREER

Operations managers and supply chain managers with analytical skills remain the most in-demand jobs for both for-profit and non-profit organisations.

You will be equipped with the necessary concepts, methods, and tools to support the decision-making processes. The specialisation in OSCA continues to focus on giving you applicable quantitative analysis and data-driven decision-making skills and competencies to establish a career within the field of OSCM. With the digitalisation of supply chains and arrival of the big data era, the job market for students in Operations and Supply Chain Analysis is fast growing.

A KEY COMPONENT OF BUSINESS

Marketing is indispensable to top management when it comes to picking served markets, competitors, and business portfolios. Customers are central to marketing too, which means making promises that match the target group’s needs and then meeting or exceeding expectations. Marketing can be applied to both commercial and non-commercial purposes – e.g. selling products or services, but also promoting favourable behaviour. This work is often international in scope, a characteristic mirrored in the course content offered on the programme at Aarhus University, which has an international staff and a diverse student body.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social.

CAREERS

Graduates with the MSc in Marketing have state-of-the-art knowledge about value creation and innovation management, brand management, pricing, marketing research, customer relationships, communications management, and marketing management and strategy in the digital age. They are ready to take on a range of management roles including consumer or market-insights research consultancy, entrepreneurship, innovation, and communication in both private and public sectors. Their skills are very much in demand – so career prospects are very bright.

How can CO2 quotas be priced and distributed efficiently? Which pipelines need to be built in order to secure the EU’s future gas supply? Do Bangladeshi farmers benefit more from direct financial support or price guarantees? What are the costs and benefits of spreading public sector activities, e.g. decentralise university educations to a higher degree? How many cars will need a parking space in Copenhagen in the future – and how many public and private electric vehicle-charging stations are needed to accommodate the shift to hybrid and electric cars? Should a company diversify its international providers of inputs and intermediate goods to include more countries than currently?

These and many other challenges situated at the intersection of economics and management form the basis of the MSc in International Economic Consulting. The increasing complexity of international relations has led to a steadily growing demand for international economic consulting services in which consultants have skills to handle the analysis of complex data, to combine the analysis with knowledge about economic business principles, and to report the results in clear writing and oral presentations. Large multinational corporations, regional and national policy-makers, international organisations like the World Bank, the EU, and the OECD, as well as a growing number of non-profit interest groups require sound economic analyses and feasibility studies for a wide range of issues.

USING THEORY TO SOLVE REAL PROBLEMS

The International Economic Consulting programme provides you with the up-to-date theoretical knowledge required for applied economic analyses. Topics ranging from relevant quantitative and empirical methods suitable for sectoral studies, to policy-impact analyses and forecasting, as well as training and concepts required for implementing national and international project consulting will introduce you to the exciting field of international economic consulting.

In the second semester, you get a hands-on experience as an economic consultant. In teams you solve exciting business cases such as ‘To which countries will Danish firms see increased exports next year?’ or ‘What is the best strategy for a company for introducing new products without cannibalizing on own existing products?’ In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. You also have the possibility to combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

QUALITY TEACHING IN AN INFORMAL SETTING

The MSc in International Economic Consulting is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal and egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups on projects gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.

CAREERS

 The MSc in International Economic Consulting was developed in close cooperation with major players in the industry. As a consequence, its graduates are prepared for a range of job functions where data analysis skills as well as knowledge about economic business principles are required. Past graduates have found jobs as consultants in domestic and international consulting companies, but also as economic advisers in private firms, international organisations, or non-profit organisations, and as analysts in regional or national governments.

GLOBAL ECONOMIC MARKETS

Though economic markets are becoming increasingly integrated, the integration is far from complete. Instead, firms have to deal with the complex situation of semi-globalisation, where barriers to market integration are significant but not strong enough to insulate markets entirely from one another. Accordingly, today's firms can neither neglect the barriers nor the links among economic markets. The MSc in International Business deals with firm internationalisation and the challenges of navigating in a semi-globalised world.

In the first year, the programme addresses the critical concepts of internationalisation, organisation, and management of foreign operations to familiarise the student with the challenges of economic globalisation and how to handle them. The emergence of global enterprises, emerging markets, global sourcing, the development of intercultural competencies, and the organisation of multinational corporations are covered, alongside the analytical tools necessary to research these topics. In the third semester, you can choose elective courses at Aarhus University, AU Summer University or (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. You also can combine electives with an internship to strengthen your practical skill-set. Finally, the fourth semester is devoted to the master’s thesis.

Economics and Business Administration - Commercial and Retail Management | Master 2 years

Economics and Business Administration - Commercial and Retail Management

Master (2 years) of Science in Economics and Business Administration (Commercial and Retail Management), 120 ECTS
Economics, commerce, management and accounting

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 10000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/retailmanagement
The MSc in Commercial and Retail Management is based on the growing challenges faced by the consumer goods industry. It has been developed in close collaboration with prominent actors in the industry.

The degree programme prepares students for a career in the HQ functions of the consumer goods industry and it provides an understanding of the industry’s specific challenges, which paves the way for a faster climb up the career ladder.  

During this programme you will acquire qualifications in areas such as retail strategy   and innovation, consumer behaviour, business negotiations, pricing, performance management as well as range, category and brand management.

DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF THE VALUE CHAIN

Today, traditional retail trade is supplemented with e-commerce and various hybrids, and more and more communication takes place on social media. Companies must therefore be able to handle an omni-channel situation where a number of different sales and communication   channels must be optimised in relation to each other. In addition, the ability to handle big data is becoming increasingly important in the consumer goods industry. This has led to changes in the relationship between supplier and retailer. The supplier must increasingly consider the entire value chain right through to the consumer, while the retailer must structure its supplier relations with an eye for how to create value for the consumer.

The traditional division of the B2B and B2C markets is thus developing towards a much-needed B2B2C mind-set. The degree programme reflects this B2B2C mind-set as the courses Supplier-retailer relations management, Business negotiations and Consumer behaviour in a retail setting cover the entire value chain from supplier to consumer.

Furthermore, students will acquire competences within areas that have a particular focus on the consumer goods industry such as retail strategy and innovation, pricing, performance and margin management, stock and waste management as well as range, category, and brand management. Digital transformation and the use of big data will play a prominent role in the programme and will be present in many courses.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

CAREERS

The degree programme prepares students for a career in various HQ functions in the consumer goods industry. Based on the value chain approach, students will be able to undertake many functions in either the supply or retail link of the value chain, especially within the consumer goods industry; from category manager or procurement manager to key account manager.

Management accounting is fundamental to business administration.

The programme highlights the role and performance of the management accountant, both locally and in an international context.

IMPROVING DECISIONS

The Management Accounting and Control programme seeks to equip students with a range of relevant management accounting concepts and theories so as to build a solid foundation for practice-oriented decision-making.

The programme aims to develop management technologies and test theories within production, reporting, analysis, and managerial use of financial as well as non-financial information. All management technologies and theories are intended for use in communicating financial events in the organisation, influencing decisions on resource allocation, and improving insight and feedback to the management of the organisation.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The programme applies a variety of teaching methods and types of evaluation. Students can expect traditional lectures, lectures with group exercises, and lectures dedicated to casework. AU encourages and expects student participation – because those who work are those who learn.

An internship during the third semester is also recommended. This gives students the chance to experience and address some of the theoretical problems discussed during the first and second semester. This creates an appetite for more theory and is the foundation for writing a solid thesis.

Master (2 years) of Economics and Business Administration, 120 ECTS
Economics, commerce, management and accounting

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 10000 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/businesstobusiness
The MSc programme in Business-to-Business Marketing and Purchasing focuses on the managerial challenges related to operating in industrial      markets. It prepares students for a wide range of careers, mainly in the private sector. Students on the programme gain skills in business-to- business marketing and strategy, purchasing management, relationship management, innovation, pricing, and the regulation of cooperation in business markets.

DEEP UNDERSTANDING OF BUSINESS MARKETS

Firms operating in business markets cater to the needs of other firms rather than private households, and in so doing they face specific challenges and opportunities. Business-to-business activities constitute the main part of any developed economy, and managers who can understand, develop, and manage such activities – upstream as well as downstream – are an important asset to firms.

The first semester of the programme provides students with a deep understanding of the functioning of business markets through courses   in buyer–supplier relationships and networks, as well as innovation in buyer–supplier relationships. First-semester courses also include marketing theory and research methods. Together, these prerequisite courses prepare students for the specialisation courses of the second semester, which cover topics such as business-to-business purchasing management, business-to-business sales and marketing management, pricing, and the regulation of marketing and purchasing cooperation.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of student activities, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations. There is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

CAREERS

The programme’s focus on upstream as well as downstream activities means that students gain a deep knowledge not only of sales/marketing and purchasing, but also how to develop and manage relationships with customers and suppliers. This dual understanding makes graduates perfect for job positions such as a key account manager (on the sales side) or category manager (on the buying side) – positions that hold many future career possibilities. Over time, graduates may develop careers within sales and marketing or purchasing, or they may choose to alternate between the two. With their knowledge and understanding of the many relationships between the firm and its various stakeholders, graduates will be well equipped for a range of general management positions.

GENERATING SOLUTIONS

Business Intelligence is concerned with the concepts and methods that can improve business decision-making by providing fact-based support systems. Organisations today increasingly use a set of techniques and tools to transform raw data into meaningful and useful information, to improve decision-making, to cut costs, to identify new business opportunities, and to pinpoint inefficient business processes that are ripe for re-engineering.

APPLYING ACADEMIC STUDY IN THE REAL WORLD

To make the best decisions, businesses need to master both business and analytics. Through the MSc in Business Intelligence, you will develop knowledge and skills related to all the steps from identifying    a business problem to implementing a final business intelligence solution. The programme covers aspects related to the streamlining and understanding of data and has a strong focus on analytics with the purpose of creating business value. Consequently, you will learn how to apply a broad range of modern data-mining tools, as well as to visualise results in such a way that the managerial implications are easier to communicate.

QUALITY TEACHING IN AN INFORMAL SETTING

The MSc in Business Intelligence is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal, egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups for project work gives students the chance to make the most of the international study environment.

SOCIAL AND ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Aarhus BSS hosts a rich and varied programme of activities for you as a student, both study-related and social. Our many student associations host events ranging from lectures and company events to career days and sports days, Friday bars, and celebrations, so there is plenty of scope for meeting and networking with like-minded people, discovering new areas of academic interest, and socialising with fellow students.

CAREERS

As a Business Intelligence graduate you will have the ability to create data-driven solutions to the questions that not just businesses, but all kinds of organisations within society face. You will be well equipped to work as a consultant and to serve as a linchpin between management and technical staff. You will be able to identify the opportunities that big data and related emerging technologies represent. With the programming, data processing, data-analytics, and data visualisation skills you have developed, together with your hands-on experience working with data sets, you will also qualify for data-analytics jobs.

English is the language of globalisation. It is the mother tongue of around 350 million people, and an even larger number speak it as a second language. The MA in English opens career opportunities in important national and international sectors (public, private, and not-for-profit) associated with the cultural, creative, communication and IT industries, and in the field of teaching.

INSIGHT INTO CULTURES AND INDUSTRIES

In the Master’s programme, you can specialise with a combination of obligatory and elective courses as you build on your BA and work with contemporary topics in one of the three theme areas: English-language literature, linguistics, and the history, society, and culture of the English-speaking world.

Whether your passion is for Anglophone literature, language, history, or all things English, the degree programme allows you to immerse yourself in the latest developments within your field of interest. You will engage in depth with the issue of what constitutes evidence within the fields of literature, linguistics, culture, and history. You will gain greater insight into standard English, its variations, and the changes that have shaped it around the world, as well as myths about language itself. You will gain an understanding of the way cultural phenomena can influence literature, and how literature in turn can influence culture. Approaching literary works with new reading techniques and theories, you will work with creative processes, storytelling, and adaptation, and learn how creativity can be commercialised. Working with cultural heritage, social media, film, and other elements of visual culture, and engaging deeply with current concerns such as identity politics, gender and media, and transnationalism, you will learn how to apply historical, social, and cultural knowledge within contemporary markets. You will be equipped with knowledge, skills, and competencies that are valued in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

MASTERING ENGLISH

You will gain a deeper understanding of the language, culture, and history of English-speaking countries through lectures, seminars, excursions, and a variety of individual and group tasks. You will be trained in effective written and verbal English communication through a variety of exam forms, ranging from writing for popular magazines to academic research papers and oral exams. You will be able to convey information and ideas clearly and vividly, both verbally and in writing, and to plan and carry out large complex projects.

CAREERS

Numerous jobs in the private sector as well as in public institutions require advanced English-language skills and analytical knowledge of the English-speaking world. You will acquire these competencies in the Master’s degree programme in English. You will be using English at a high international level and will gain in-depth knowledge of the historical, cultural, and social conditions of the English-speaking world.

Whether you seek a career in the public, private, or non-profit sectors, or as a teacher, comprehensive knowledge of the English language and the cultures and societies of English-speaking countries is important. In many situations, a high level of English-language proficiency is indispensable. With a Master’s degree in English, you will have the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary to work in the global economy.

EUROPEAN STUDIES, EUROPEAN CONNECTIONS

Europe is becoming more and more important. As Europeans become more closely connected, the EU makes decisions that affect every European nation, every level of industry, and virtually every business. However, this view of international relations is constantly challenged and discussed. In European Studies, you will learn to analyse both the problems and the possibilities inherent in the European collaboration – and in Europe in general. You will deal not only with EU institutions, but also with analyses of cultural, social, and political processes in Europe – and the question of what Europe really is.

The Master’s programme in European Studies is for anyone with a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant social science or humanities subject who would like to add a European perspective to their education. The aim of the degree programme is to give you general knowledge of European conditions, political as well as historical and cultural, and to build on the insight you gained in your BA studies.

NEW INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVES

The degree programme is aimed at students with a solid academic background who would like to add a European dimension to their education. You will acquire knowledge of European affairs to supplement your Bachelor’s degree. The European dimension is useful whether you wish to work with political institutions, international organisations, the business community, the media, in teaching, or with cultural understanding. This is also an international Master’s programme in which your fellow students will have come from all over the world. All instruction therefore takes place in English, and students speak English both during class and after hours.

WORK INTERNATIONALLY AND INTERCULTURALLY

With a Master’s in European Studies, you are qualified to analyse, understand, and work not only with European diversity, but also everything that brings Europeans together. European Studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural degree programme, and therefore prepares you to work in international organisations, large corporations, and in public administration.

DEPARTMENT OF GLOBAL STUDIES

The Department of Global Studies provides a distinct approach to understanding our contemporary world by combining language-based area studies of Brazil, China, Japan, India, and Russia with European and International Studies and a global perspective. As an academic field, Global Studies was born only in the late 1990s and it grew exponentially in importance in the 2000s. Its main elements find their root cause in the insight that contemporary global conditions cannot be studied only in terms of states and their interactions. Taking a holistic approach, Global Studies takes history, cultural studies, and anthropology just as seriously as political science, sociology, and economics.

In step with this approach, we understand nations and regions not as cultural containers, but as globally connected. Likewise, disciplines are understood not as knowledge containers, but as connected ways of addressing similar questions.

Students at the Department of Global Studies grow to become critical and self-confident citizens of the contemporary global world. Graduates are well prepared for work in research, in teaching, in public institutions and ministries, as well as within the private sector, where global competencies, even in small and medium-sized enterprises, are increasingly in demand.

Anthropology - Visual Anthropology

Master (2 years) of Science in Anthropology , 120 ECTS
Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/anthropology
Whether they study the traditions of an indigenous group in Brazil or the social organisation of an international fashion company, anthropologists are concerned with identifying the cultural norms, beliefs, and power structures that make up communities. The MSc in Anthropology at Aarhus University equips students to delve into and analyse the everyday life of human societies – whether across the globe or just around the corner – and the routines, rhythms, and rituals that keep them going.

The programme offers first-rank training in theory, data collection, and analysis, combined with a strong emphasis on learning through fieldwork practice and other engagements with the outside world.   It provides students with a thorough foundation in anthropological theory and social analysis, as well as a strong focus on qualitative research methods and robust project design. Designed to allow students to approach any social context in a world of constant change, the programme revolves around the students’ own ideas and projects, developed in a continuous dialogue with senior researchers and supervisors.

VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY

We offer a specialised English-language track in Visual Anthropology as part of the larger MSc programme in Anthropology. The track builds on a classical anthropological approach, studying human life in all its social and cultural forms, while also teaching students to work anthropologically with audio-visual media and methods in a world mediated increasingly through sound, pictures, and digital media.

Students do practical and theoretical work with experimental fieldwork methods using a camera. Hands-on workshops involve working with (for instance) the production of ethnographic films, the design of audio-visual projects and exhibitions, and exploring the use of the camera as an analytical tool.

In the first and second semester, you will take theoretical, thematic, and methodological courses, some of which will be shared with students on our general Anthropology track (these shared courses are taught in English). During your second and third semester, you gain practical experience by preparing and conducting an extended anthropological fieldwork, or alternatively by completing an internship at a Danish or international company or organisation. When it comes to choosing the topic for their final thesis, most students draw on material they have collected during their fieldwork semesters. In the third semester, you will begin to analyse your field data and focus on future employment possibilities. In the fourth semester, you will prepare your Master’s thesis, with the possibility of creating an audio-visual product – such as a film or an exhibition element – as part of your thesis.

CAMPUS MOESGAARD

Campus Moesgaard is a unique place. It includes the university departments, Moesgaard Library, a joint library for anthropology and archaeology, as well as the Moesgaard Museum. In the library you will find study space, including space reserved for students writing their thesis. You can sign out electronic equipment such as video cameras and digital voice recorders to complete research, and then book time in the newly installed editing suite to shape your resultant films. The MoCa Canteen is run by a local Aarhus sustainable food collective and is also an important social hub, while the adjoining flexible space provides a venue for receptions as well as the regular Friday evening bar. You will also have the opportunity to see the many changing exhibits at the Moesgaard Museum during your time here. As a student at Moesgaard, you can access the museum for free by showing your valid student card.

Website https://masters.au.dk/geology
The MSc in Geology at Aarhus University is a flexible, research-centred programme that encourages students to explore their own interests both in the lab and in the field. The programme includes most classic geological disciplines in new and modern guises. Students have the chance to customise their research within the programme so as to suit their own personal and professional interests.

SPECIALISED RESEARCH

Teaching on the programme is integrated with research at the highest international level. The Department of Geoscience is renowned for its research in quaternary geology, hydrogeology, basin and lithosphere geology (oil geology and geothermics), micropalaeontology and climate research, structural geology, petrology, and geochemistry.

The department also has a close collaboration with the Department of Archaeology. A number of laboratories are available, including a luminescence dating facility, a metal-free clean laboratory with mass spectrometers, a cosmogenic nuclide laboratory, and a core scanner. Students work closely with technical staff and with some of the best Danish and international researchers in the field. Teamwork is promoted so as to provide a forum for group research and discussion as well as opportunities to partner with private companies for research.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Geoscience is a small community of about two hundred students brought together by shared research, team field trips, and common interests.

Classes take place in modern facilities with well-equipped labs. Students have access to cosy study areas, quiet reading rooms, wi-fi, computers and, of course, a classic Danish pop-up Friday bar. Students also have access to a communal office where they can sit and read, or just hang out together.

CAREERS

Graduates of the programme have moved into a wide range of careers, from the water and oil industries to engineering and construction, government consultancy, and research.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of geology, geophysics, physics, chemistry, mathematics, probability theory, statistics, and programming.

SPECIALISATIONS IN MSC GEOLOGY

The MSc in Geology is a two-year programme offering four different specialisations. The specialisation is chosen in the first year, and the second year is dedicated to the Master’s thesis.

Modules in each specialisation are either 5 or 10 ECTS. A full year of study is 60 ECTS.

The MSc in Geophysics at Aarhus University provides a compelling learning experience, integrating skills in physics and mathematics with proper geoscience. Students get to choose their own specific area of focus while exploring a variety of fields at a range of scales, from past and present climate and shallow quaternary structures and materials, through the development of groundwater aquifers and sedimentary basins, to the structure and dynamics of the lithosphere and the Earth’s mantle. Numerical modelling is generally used.

HIGH-CALIBRE RESEARCH

Teaching on the programme is integrated with research at the highest international level. The Department of Geoscience is renowned for its research in hydrogeophysics (airborne and surface electromagnetic methods) for use in hydrogeology and mineral exploration. Further specialities are reflection seismic acquisition (on board the research vessel Aurora), processing, and interpretation, as used in subsurface mapping of hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoirs; seismology and potential fields; and numerical modelling of surface and mantle processes.

The thesis, which is heavily weighted, is a chance for students to tailor their degree to their own personal and career interests while benefiting from close collaboration with fellow students and faculty members.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Geoscience is a small community of about two hundred students brought together by shared research, team field trips, and common interests.

Classes are held in modern facilities with well-established labs. You will have access to cosy study areas, quiet reading rooms, wi-fi, computers and, of course, a classic Danish pop-up Friday bar. As a Geoscience Master’s student, you will also have access to a communal office where you can sit and study, or just hang out with other students.

CAREERS

Geophysics graduates have found jobs across a wide range of fields, including groundwater management, geophysical exploration for water and minerals in engineering companies and in the energy sector (including oil and gas), and for geothermal energy and CO2 deposits. They also frequently move into higher education and government research.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A bachelor’s degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in geophysics and physics can qualify the student for admission, provided the combined academic demands regarding the Master’s programme in Geophysics are met.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of geology, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, programming and probability calculus.

SPECIALISATIONS IN MSC IN GEOPHYSICS

The MSc in Geophysics is a two-year programme offering four different specialisations. The specialisation is chosen in the first year, and the second year is dedicated to the master’s thesis.

Modules in each specialisation are either 5 or 10 ECTS. A full year of study is 60 ECTS.

Human Security | Master 2 years

Human Security

Master (2 years) of Human Security, 120 ECTS
Agriculture and environment Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts Law, public administration, public order and safety

Institution Aarhus University (AU)
Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/humansecurity
Human Security is a unique interdisciplinary Master’s programme and the first of its kind in Europe. Over your two years of study, you will learn several approaches to human security, and you will achieve a deep understanding of conflicts and ecosystems all over the world. You will learn to analyse and intervene in settings comprising complex and interwoven social, environmental, economic, and political factors. At the same time, you will develop the ability to carry out an informed and critical analytical assessment of human and environmental safety by combining scientific theories with real-life experiences.

A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO SECURITY

During recent years, the concept of “human security” has become a rallying point for understanding and working with processes of human development in unstable environments. Growing challenges posed by global environmental change threaten to trigger a rapid escalation in conflicts throughout the world. Intensified competition for scarce resources, dwindling supplies of essential commodities, and a continued increase in global population rates are just some of these challenges. While human security is about the absence of physical violence, it is also more than this: human security is about freedom from fear, which is also freedom from want, and being able to live a life with dignity.

AN INSPIRING LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

The programme, which is taught at the historic Moesgaard Campus, is the fruit of a collaboration between the School of Culture and Society at the Faculty of Arts and the faculties of Science and Technical Sciences. The programme lecturers come from a variety of departments and backgrounds including Anthropology and Bioscience, supplemented by visiting lecturers from around the globe. The programme is interdisciplinary both in academic content and in its student body: our students come from all over the world and from very different academic backgrounds – the humanities, social science, natural science – which enriches and enlivens the learning atmosphere.

CAREERS

Graduating with a Master’s in Human Security will open job opportunities across many different sectors. Depending on your interest, you will be able to work for NGOs, international organisations, governmental agencies, private companies, or consultancies dealing with issues and topics that involve human security. The programme’s Human Security Profiles contain concrete career examples – see www.humansecurity.dk/profiles.

DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

The Department of Anthropology, in which the Human Security programme is based, is among the strongest academic environments in Europe. The department attracts guest researchers, PhD students and students from all over the world. Our teaching is deeply anchored in our research specialisations within globalisation and development, innovation and design, and medical as well as visual anthropology.

CAMPUS MOESGAARD

Campus Moesgaard is a unique place. It includes the university departments, Moesgaard Library, a joint library for anthropology and archaeology, as well as the Moesgaard Museum. In the library you will find study space, including space reserved for students writing their thesis. You can sign out electronic equipment such as video cameras and digital voice recorders to complete research, and then book time in the newly installed editing suite to shape your resultant films. The MoCa Canteen is run by a local Aarhus sustainable food collective and is also an important social hub, while the adjoining flexible space provides a venue for receptions as well as the regular Friday evening bar. You will also have the opportunity to see the many changing exhibits at the Moesgaard Museum during your time here. As a student at Moesgaard, you can access the museum for free by showing your valid student card.

Cultural and language differences shape the everyday life of individuals and organisations in our increasingly interdependent and transnational world. These cultural and language entanglements include different histories and conflicts and are represented in different media and literatures. The increased interconnectivity and transnational mobility of both people and mediated information demand new sensitivities and skills to understand, analyse, and negotiate cultural difference. The Intercultural Studies program prepares students to analyse different contemporary contexts of identity negotiation and interaction, and to engage in planning for professional interaction in globalising spaces while enhancing language competences. Students can choose from four different tracks:
  • Intercultural Studies (English)
  • Intercultural Studies (French)
  • Intercultural Studies (German)
  • Intercultural Studies (Latin America and Spain)
STUDY PROFILE

The program develops students’ knowledge on diverse conceptualisations of culture and the rich potentials of cultural differences while sharpening language skills to enable intercultural dialogue and collaboration in a global world. The program also contains practical components for students to develop their competences in working innovatively on intercultural issues within and beyond organisations.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The four different foreign-language combinations follow a similar basic structure, but address interculturality within specific historical and societal contexts related to the English, French, German and Spanish languages. The English track is taught exclusively in English while the other three tracks are taught both in English and in French, German and Spanish respectively.

STUDENT LIFE

Aarhus University provides a vibrant social and study environment to students. Read more about this here: masters.au.dk/interculturalstudies

The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation offers a unique 360° educational experience. Students on the programme study and live in at least two European countries, interact with classmates from all around the world and engage in lively and insightful discussions in a thriving interdisciplinary and intercultural environment.

The MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation lies at the intersection between social sciences and humanities, combining theoretical and practice-oriented approaches to journalism studies. The fruit of this cross-disciplinary approach is a joint understanding that cuts across academic    disciplines, journalistic genres, and geographical and cultural settings.

The degree has been a part of the Erasmus Mundus study programme since 2005 and has continually evolved in order to best prepare graduates for the global changes that increasingly challenge traditional boundaries between media, politics, technology, and culture(s).

STUDY AT LEADING INSTITUTIONS

All students spend their first year jointly between Aarhus University – taught by faculty from the Department of Political Science and the Department of Information and Media Studies – and the highly respected Danish School of Media and Journalism. In year two, the programme splits into four specialisations offered by some of Europe’s leading universities.

By choosing a specific specialisation for the second year of studies, students customise their studies within the following areas:
  • Politics and Communication at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
  • Totalitarianism and Transition at Charles University, Prague, Czechia
  • Business & Innovation at City, University of London, the United Kingdom
  • Cultures and Contexts at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany
Please visit www.mundusjournalism.com for more information about the course programmes of the MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation.

STUDENT LIFE

As a Mundus Journalism student, you can expect a truly intercultural experience, as the programme brings together students from all around the world to join a tight-knit community of inspired and talented young professionals. So far, students from 105 different countries have joined the programme.

In addition to high-standard academics, the programme also offers a variety of extra-curricular activities and student-led initiatives, almost as varied as the countries students come from. From radio stations to theatre groups, from competitive football teams to start-ups, the opportunities for interaction and idea development within the programme are limitless.

Furthermore, many of our students write, photograph, record, tweet and blog their way through the programme. Some work for media outlets in their home countries, while others develop their own platforms and personal take on journalism. Many students also attend academic conferences and publish journal articles stemming from their work, and others work as freelances for leading news outlets.

To get more information about this topic and get a glimpse of being a student at the Mundus Journalism programme, check out "#MundusLife" on YouTube, our new video series talking about practical tips and tricks to make the most of the Mundus adventure. The videos are recorded and edited by our Mundus Journalism students Giovana Faria (Brazil) and Sandra Zialcita (The Philippines). In addition, every year students compile the Bluebook, a yearbook filled with information about themselves, Aarhus, and Mundus life fun facts – if you are looking for an insider perspective on the programme, please check out the latest editions!

CAREERS

Graduates of the MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation are entering successful and stimulating jobs across the world, often and quickly reaching top positions. Graduates usually find work in the intersection between journalism, media, and communication; they take up roles in newsrooms, international organisations, information-based journalism, or communication departments in various global public and private organisations. Many alumni have also chosen to build their career in public relations and communications in intergovernmental organisations, technology start-ups, and global non-profit companies among others.

The programme's combination of different national research traditions and its emphasis on globalisation open future academic and research opportunities. The Mundus Journalism programme has proved itself to be a unique recruitment ground for PhD programs in Europe and overseas, and some of our PhD candidates have continued their path into academia as associate professors and researchers.

Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 8000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/linguistics
The MA in Linguistics at Aarhus University explores the various aspects of language through project-based research under expert supervision. Students in the programme learn to use qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods to examine language description and diversity, the role of language in communication and society, functionalist theories of language, language as a cognitive phenomenon, and experimental and computational approaches to the study of language. In addition to gaining specialised skills in linguistic analysis, students also gain general proficiency in statistics and programming.

A CLOSE COMMUNITY

Linguistics at AU is a medium-sized programme with about a hundred students – so new students are welcomed into a tight-knit academic and social community. Expect many opportunities for dialogue with professors, detailed feedback, and many after-class activities.

The programme is known for its strong international research profile. Teachers have worldwide connections and integrate the newest research developments in their courses. Each semester, students are invited to participate in research projects on a range of subjects.

STUDENT LIFE

Between Lingoland (the department’s own common room) and the regular Lingobar gatherings in the Kommabar on Fridays, life as a linguistics student at AU can extend far beyond coursework. The department’s ViGør student committee (“We can do it” in Danish) and the MA course café are constantly busy organising weekly events for students – so between gatherings inspired by classic Danish hygge (cosiness) with coffee and cake, guest lectures, and Tour de Bars (pub crawls), students have lots to choose from.

The programme has its own student committee, which functions as a forum for students to communicate with the university and share ideas regarding both practical and school-related matters. All students can be active in the programme degree committee, where students and staff make decisions on matters relating to academic affairs.

CAREERS

Graduates of the MA in Linguistics programme are equipped with skills in communication and in the systematisation of complex data. Depending on the area they choose to specialise in, graduates are qualified to take on work as consultants, bilingualism specialists, communications officers, teachers, editors, language therapy consultants, developers of language technology, specialists in endangered languages and, of course, in public relations.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The MA program builds toward a thesis project on a subject of the student’s own choosing. The courses in the program prepare students to design experiments and do statistical analyses of the results, investigate the relationship between structure and meaning in language, explore the relationship between linguistic structure and the contextual constraints of usage, understand the diversity of means by which the world’s languages solve similar communicative problems, and use computational methods to investigate linguistic phenomena. Students on the MA programme are involved in two research projects on exciting new topics and have the opportunity to explore the application of linguistics in the workplace through an internship. All students are assigned a staff member as a mentor for the duration of their studies.

Students have a chance to complete project-oriented work with their peers in the first year, and with an external partner in the third semester—a chance to work in a practical setting. Students are encouraged to choose their own research focus throughout the programme, and especially for their MA thesis, and are encouraged to align their projects with their future career goals.

DEPARTMENT OF LINGUISTICS, COGNITIVE SCIENCE AND SEMIOTICS

The Department of Linguistics, Cognitive Science and Semiotics is one of the nine departments at the School of Communication and Culture at the Faculty of Arts.

The teaching at the department is not only research-based, but also research-oriented. Students are encouraged to collect and analyse data and to design and carry out experiments or other empirical investigations, either alone or in cooperation with the research staff. In some cases, students may even have their research published. Students regularly present their research to fellow students and staff at research seminars.

Website https://masters.au.dk/mathematics
Mathematics is a part of day-to-day life – of using your debit card and navigating by GPS, just as much as making calculations in physics or chemistry or working out the pot odds in an important hand of poker.

RESEARCH AND SPECIALISATION

Teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. When students write their MSc thesis during the final year of the programme, they have excellent opportunities to become affiliated with a group of researchers, which allows them to participate in the group’s research projects and scientific discussions. Students specialise in a subject within a broad area, including one of the three areas of mathematics in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: algebra, analysis, and geometry and topology.

STUDENT LIFE

As a student in the programme, you are based at the Department of Mathematics, which has its own canteen, computer rooms, library, and study areas shared by students. As a master’s student, you will be given your own desk in an office shared with other master’s students. The department also has a number of student organisations such as Euler’s Friends (Eulers Venner) and the Kalkulerbar (Friday bar) organising lectures on current maths topics, study excursions, and social functions.

CAREERS

Graduates from the Department of Mathematics find work across a wide range of fields and institutions including finance, communication, and the wind-power industry in the private sector. Typically, previous graduates are working in universities and research institutions, in the pharmaceutical industry, the telecommunications and finance sectors, and in insurance companies.

 
Graduates who pursue academic careers at universities are often involved in interdisciplinary work with doctors, biologists or chemists, analysing large amounts of data, or teaching statistics to these professional groups. In the pharmaceutical industry, graduates plan clinical trials or design methods for examining whether new drugs have unwanted side effects. In the insurance industry, 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 – something the MSc in Mathematics will equip you with.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A bachelor’s degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in mathematics can qualify the student for admission.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

  Relevant courses include core courses within abstract algebra, complex analysis, differential equations, elementary differential geometry/ topology and measure and integration.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

In general, admission to a master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS). In addition, you must meet the specific requirements for the individual programme, including language requirements. If you wish to study a master’s degree at Aarhus University, please check out our page ‘Am I qualified for admission’: https://masters.au.dk/am-i-qualified-for-admission

Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://masters.au.dk/medicinal-chemistry
Aarhus University’s MSc in Medicinal Chemistry builds on a strong chemical foundation. It is a flexible study programme that can be tailored to the specific interests of the individual student, while aligning with the interests of industry, research institutions, and the public sector. While the programme is customisable, there is an emphasis on the medicinal aspects of chemistry such as organic synthesis, drug delivery, and protein structure and function. The MSc programme is challenging, yet highly rewarding for students interested in how chemistry can be a tool for biological research.

LEARN FROM LEADERS IN THE FIELD

Course content is heavily influenced by the latest research conducted at Aarhus University, as all lecturers are also active researchers. Students are expected to take part in fundamental research projects within the department’s research groups, and there may also be opportunities to work with private companies or public institutions during the programme.

Students will be able to specialise within one of the areas of medicinal chemistry in which Aarhus University is particularly strong: organic synthesis; analysis of new bioactive compounds; structure and activity of membrane-bound proteins; microscopic structure of bones and other bioinorganic materials; modelling of proteins and their interaction with pharmaceuticals; and drug delivery and chemical biology. Students in the programme have access to high-quality laboratory equipment and tools that allow them to engage in hands-on learning at the cutting edge of science.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

Students enrolled in the MSc Medicinal Chemistry programme participate in courses during their first year and then complete their studies with a second year of independent research undertaken within a research group, concluding with the production of a thesis. The research project and thesis are supervised by a researcher in the research group and may be carried out in collaboration with an external partner.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Chemistry has an active student environment with both academic and social activities arranged by our student organisations. During your time as a master’s student, you will work closely with team members in one of the research groups, as well as participating in the academic and social events of the group.

CAREERS

There are more chemistry openings in Denmark than there are domestic graduates to fill them, making unemployment very low for graduates in Medicinal Chemistry.

Medicinal Chemistry graduates have moved into R&D and consultancy jobs in both public and private sectors, and several graduates are currently working in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

As a graduate of the programme, you will be well-suited to work with pharmaceutical companies such as Novo Nordisk, Novozymes, LeoPharma and Lundbeck. Your strong chemistry background will also give you a point of entry into careers with companies in other sectors, such as IFF, Arla, Chr. Hansen and Eurofins.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A Bachelor’s degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in medicinal chemistry can qualify the student for admission. Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of Bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the Bachelor’s degree.

We urge that students interested in studying Medicinal Chemistry at Aarhus University apply to both the Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry programmes. If accepted into the Chemistry programme instead, Medicinal Chemistry courses can be chosen as electives in the Chemistry programme and thereby tailored to the interests of each student.

Relevant courses include core courses within the subject areas of medicinal chemistry, mathematics, physics and statistics.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION

In general, admission to a master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS).

Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field within the natural sciences. It deals with understanding and utilising materials and phenomena at the nanoscale – that is, between 0.1 and 100 nanometres. The ability to work on this scale makes it possible to develop highly improved or completely new functions and properties in a wide range of materials.

The MSc in Nanoscience programme at Aarhus University is relevant for students with a BSc degree from a Danish or international university in either nanoscience or an interdisciplinary combination of physics, chemistry, and molecular biology. The Nanoscience degree programme is both practical and research-oriented. Students can complete an MSc project in a number of areas, including nanomaterials, interfaces and catalysis, nanomedicine, synthetic biology, and nano-food.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The MSc programme consists of 120 ECTS credits. Students study subjects within the fields of physics, chemistry, and molecular biology, as well as specific nanoscience subjects. Based on their previous academic specialisation, students choose their courses and the subject of their MSc project so as to specialise in one of four areas: nanomaterials, biomedical nanotechnology, structural biology and biophysics, or organic nanochemistry/soft matter. Students are offered guidance in selecting their individual course programmes from a suite of master’s courses offered by iNANO and the relevant departments. The degree programme concludes with the Master’s project.

INTERDISCIPLINARY INANO

The Nanoscience degree programme at Aarhus University is based at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre, iNANO. iNANO is staffed by its own researchers as well as researchers drawn from the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics, as well as researchers from other departments and the Faculty of Health. The centre’s mission is to build on three basic pillars: top-level international research, education at all levels from BSc to PhD, and innovation and interaction with industry and society at large.

CAREERS

As a graduate in Nanoscience, you will be qualified to work in R&D in both public and private sectors in medicine, the environment, biotechnology, and the IT and communication industries. A number of R&D projects are currently under way at iNANO, in collaboration with approximately a hundred Danish and international companies, including Novo Nordisk, Aalborg Portland, Arla Foods, Danfoss, Grundfos, Haldor Topsøe, Lundbeck, Unisense, Carlsberg, Dupont and Novozymes. The iNANO School – part of the iNANO Centre – comprises both an international graduate school and associated research groups in physics, chemistry, biology, and molecular biology, working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. iNANO promotes excellent science and provides an academic environment for PhD students of the highest calibre, with many graduates of the programme going on to do a PhD.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A bachelor’s degree amounting to at least 60 ECTS credits in Nanoscience can qualify the student for admission.

Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s degree programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Website https://masters.au.dk/physics
You adjust the lasers in the lab 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 you might be at CERN this 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.

Students on the MSc programme in Physics are actively involved in research and in the discussion of new discoveries and theories. The curriculum is tailored to the interests and intended profile of the individual.

FOCUS ON RESEARCH

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

SPECIALISATION

The MSc in Physics programme is open to students with a BSc degree in physics or another BSc degree in science with substantial physics and mathematics content. The programme is challenging and research- oriented and reflects the interests of private-sector companies,   research institutions, and the public sector. It is also flexible and can accommodate the interests and strengths of the individual student.

Students can specialise within (for example) atomic and molecular physics, solid-state physics, subatomic physics, or astrophysics. The programme also qualifies students for a career in research: students may apply for admission to the university’s PhD programme either during the MSc degree programme or on completion of the thesis.

STUDENT LIFE

The Department of Physics and Astronomy aims to create a good student environment both in terms of working methods and social environment and facilities. When you write your master’s thesis in one of the department’s research groups, you will be given your own desk in an office shared with other students.

The department also has many social and academic associations with their own festive traditions. They organise events like the “hat party,” celebrating the most recent graduates. There is also the Physics Friday bar, where students get together at the end of the week to enjoy a drink and a catch-up.

CAREERS

Graduates from the MSc Physics programme have a wide range of career opportunities. A number of graduates are working in the private sector in areas such as modern optics, materials physics, or surface physics. Large IT companies, patent agencies, and the financial sector are increasingly hiring one or more physicists on their staff. The number of graduates working in hospitals as physicists has also dramatically increased, with most of these working in radiation physics and radiation therapy. Some of our recent graduates are in research positions at universities or at public research institutions.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Students must have a bachelor of science degree, preferably in physics. Admission may be granted based on a BSc in another field provided it includes core courses in physics and astronomy totalling a minimum of 60 ECTS, as well as basic subject components in mathematics and statistics totalling at least 30 ECTS. Other qualifications may also give admission to the Master’s programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the requirements mentioned above.

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Website https://masters.au.dk/soilsandglobalchange
The Erasmus Mundus International Master’s in Soils and Global Change (IMSOGLO) offers you a unique international educational experience with a focused curriculum on soils and global change by bringing together the expertise of research groups at four renowned EU universities.

The programme has been granted the EU’s prestigious Erasmus Mundus label. It is offered jointly by Ghent University (Belgium), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria), University of Göttingen (Germany), and Aarhus University (Denmark).

GLOBAL CHANGE AFFECTS THE FUTURE CAPACITY OF SOIL

Increasing population pressure, industrialisation and intensive land use are causing depletion of natural resources and are limiting the performance of land with respect to functions such as biomass production, carbon sequestration and water purification. The cumulative effects of climate change and the abovementioned aspects of global change influence the capacity of soils to regenerate and may even cause soil degradation.

The future capacity of soils to support (human) life is at stake, as recognised by national and international organisations and governmental bodies, such as the EU. Programmes have been developed to protect the environment and to increase ecosystem resilience. Numerous directives have been developed and implemented that build on scientific knowledge about soil response to external pressures.

This scientific knowledge is available in European universities, but rather dispersed due to the specialisation and size of the relevant research groups. In the past this has made it difficult for students to follow a focused curriculum on soils and global change at any individual university.  
The alarming effects of global change on soils observed throughout the world emphasize the need to train more personnel worldwide to understand how soils react to global change and to develop prevention and remediation strategies and increase soil resilience. The participating universities in IMSOGLO are very well equipped to give effective and targeted training on soil interactions with global change to an international audience of students.

COMBINE YOUR OWN STUDY PROGRAMME AT DIFFERENT EUROPEAN UNIVERSITIES

As a student on the IMSOGLO programme you will attend several higher education institutes in at least two countries.

All students will study for their first semester at Ghent University. Following this, students will choose between two specialisations.

Students who choose to specialise in ‘Soil Biogeochemistry and Global Change’ will study in Vienna in their second semester and in Göttingen in their third semester. In their fourth semester, they will write their master’s thesis at one of these two universities.  

Students who choose to specialise in ‘Physical Land Resources and Global Change’ will study in Ghent in their second semester and in Aarhus in their third semester. In their fourth semester, they will write their master’s thesis at one of these two universities.

All students will have the opportunity to attend summer school in Vienna or to conduct fieldwork in China.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A bachelor’s degree (minimum 180 ECTS credits) is required in pure or applied sciences (e.g., chemistry, biology, geology, civil or agricultural engineering, environmental or agricultural sciences) or an equivalent level from a recognised university or engineering college.

Sufficient academic knowledge (at least 40 ECTS in total) is also required in natural sciences (with natural sciences specified as: physics, chemistry, maths, ecology, biology, geography, environmental sciences or agricultural sciences).

English is the language of instruction in all subjects, and all applicants are therefore required to provide evidence of their English-language proficiency. Please find more information about English requirements online.

You can also apply for an Erasmus Mundus full scholarship that covers tuition fee, monthly allowance, and travel costs up to a total of 49000 EUR for the full 2-year master programme (https://imsoglo.eu/costsandscholarships/).

CAREERS

With an International Master of Science in Soils and Global Change you will be trained in soil management in the context of global change with either an agro-ecosystem focus or an integrated land management focus. You will gain extensive knowledge about what it takes to save our soils from degradation, how to make soils resilient to climate change, and how to make soils healthy again.

You will be equipped to follow a variety of career paths as a top-level researcher, an academic, or a policymaker. This means that there are job opportunities in regional environment agencies, municipal nature conservation offices, agricultural advisory services, educational institutions, NGOs concerned with nature and the environment, consulting engineering companies, and EU institutions, ministries and other public authorities.

Research is also an obvious career path. Students can apply for admission to the university’s PhD programme following completion of the thesis.

Science and technology form part of our day-to-day lives, wherever we are. We constantly have to make decisions that draw on scientific and technological knowledge. The MSc in Science Studies provides you with insight into how science works and how scientific discoveries and knowledge have affected our lives and our societies. You will learn to place scientific knowledge within historical, philosophical, and social perspectives. You will also gain a multi-faceted perspective on the many challenges and opportunities that science provides.

SCIENCE, CULTURE AND SOCIETY

The MSc in Science Studies is open to students with a science bachelor’s degree who are seeking a wider perspective on how the natural sciences have developed in their interaction with society and contemporary culture. The programme includes the following themes building on the bachelor’s science background – history and philosophy of science; science, technology, and innovation; science and society; and science and communication.

Students in the programme will learn to understand the social and philosophical implications of science, the forces that drive technological change, and contemporary developments within research and within the public understanding of science. Knowledge of the development of science and the ability to analyse science in a cultural and societal context can be useful in many different situations. Graduates may seek to be communicators, presenting the challenges and opportunities that science represents through the media. This knowledge of the interaction between natural sciences, technology and society is relevant in public administration, in business and industry, and in many kinds of organisation.

STUDENT LIFE

The Centre for Science Studies has excellent study facilities, including the new shared library for science studies and many natural science programmes. It is notable particularly for its extensive collection of books and journals in the science studies field. The centre is small, which means that students work in close collaboration with the academic staff, and it has gained a reputation for a lively social life. Researchers and students interact on a daily basis, get together for bi-weekly colloquia, and meet up every Tuesday in an informal setting for coffee and cake.

CAREERS

Science Studies graduates will have a sound understanding of the social and philosophical implications of science, the forces that drive technological change, and contemporary developments within research and the public understanding of science. Thus equipped, graduates can seek a career communicating science and its challenges and opportunities to the general public through the media. They can also use their knowledge of the interaction between the natural sciences, technology, and society in public administration, business and industry, and in many different organisations.

Previous graduates are working as project managers and communication officers in private companies and public organisations, civil servants in public administration, teachers in the Danish high schools, and science writers and editors.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

A bachelor of science degree from a Danish university or international equivalent, or a bachelor’s degree including at least 60 ECTS credits in science studies, can qualify students for admission. Other qualifications can also provide admission to the Master’s programme, provided the university assesses that their level, extent, and content correspond to the degrees mentioned above. 

SELECTION CRITERIA

As the Master’s programme admits only a limited number of students each year, meeting the admission requirements does not in itself guarantee admission to the programme. Student places are allocated on the basis of an overall assessment. In evaluating qualified applicants, the admissions committee assesses applicants according to the following criteria: academic background; overall grade level of bachelor’s degree; grades achieved on relevant courses; and relevant courses (measured in credit units) included in the bachelor’s degree.

Relevant courses include core courses within the history and philosophy of science and technology, science communication, and related areas.

COMBINING THEORY WITH PRACTICE

The MA programme in Sustainable Heritage Management at Aarhus University introduces you to the knowledge and competencies you will need to meet the multiple challenges of contemporary heritage policy, management, and research. Working with cultural and natural heritage means being conscious of, and taking responsibility for, the links between humans, the environment, and what remains from the past. We acknowledge that heritage is also an integral part of the present, and a powerful resource for future-making. The Sustainable Heritage Management programme equips you, through engaging with critical theory and best practice, with the skills necessary to plot your route through the exciting, expanding, and increasingly complex field of heritage studies and practice. You will be trained in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment to understand, assess, and sustain heritage sites and resources. Furthermore, you will be immersed in a critical understanding of the human social, political, and economic relationships in which heritage processes and practices are embedded, and gain the confidence to strategize how you develop, revise, and innovate the future shape of the sector.

HERITAGE AS A RESOURCE

The Sustainable Heritage Management programme qualifies you to analyse and respond ethically to the demands of heritage work, providing not only a sophisticated intellectual framework, but also a practice-based toolbox of skills. You will learn to tackle the pressing challenges of heritage management, and heritage-focused research, on local and global scales.

A HIGHLY INTERDISCIPLINARY FIELD

Heritage is a highly interdisciplinary field, drawing on methodologies, theories, and approaches from several disciplines, including archaeology, anthropology, architecture, art history, history, geography, politics, and many others. The Sustainable Heritage Management programme at Aarhus University is anchored in an interdisciplinary research environment that includes engaging with researchers from archaeology, anthropology, geography, global studies, museology, religious studies, and postcolonial studies, as well as heritage practitioners.

This means that during your course of studies you will be equipped to work not only with material forms of cultural heritage, landscapes, and environments, but also with intangible heritage, text, images and, not least, people and their various perceptions of, and investments in, heritage. The programme intersects with the internationally renowned Moesgaard Museum and the wider Moesgaard Forest environment, which is located just outside Aarhus, affording collaborative opportunities for students and staff in this university/museum environment. Your core lecturers are active in the global heritage arena and are well placed to provide insights into heritage issues and practices elsewhere, including through their many ongoing projects, collaborations, and contacts; this also includes potential internships and fieldwork opportunities.

STUDENT LIFE

The Sustainable Heritage Management programme is based at the Department of Archaeology and Heritage Studies at Moesgaard, an eighteenth-century manor house newly equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that also houses the Department of Anthropology. Here you will have access to a library, computers, a common room, lounges, and a cafeteria, as well as the internationally renowned archaeology and anthropology museum MOMU (www.moesgaardmuseum.dk), and the surrounding hundred hectares of beautiful fields and woodlands leading down to the sea.

The Department-wide student society, Hikuin, organizes a range of events and discussions, as well as the Moesgaard Friday Bar. In addition, there are regular SHM-specific events, such as the ‘Heritage Hangout’, which combines professional scholarship and a supportive social environment to act as an exciting and simulating scholarly experience.

CAREERS

Graduates in Sustainable Heritage Management are qualified for a number of job markets and industries, depending on your chosen area of interest and specialization selected during the third and fourth semesters. While some recent graduates have embarked on PhDs at Aarhus University and overseas, others are working in the tourism, community, museum, gallery, and archival sectors, in planning and development agencies, government and civil service, and in bodies within resource management and capacity-building, as well as in the artistic and creative industries.

CAMPUS MOESGAARD

Campus Moesgaard is a unique place. It includes the university departments, Moesgaard Library, a joint library for anthropology and archaeology, as well as the Moesgaard Museum. In the library you will find study space, including space reserved for students writing their thesis. You can sign out electronic equipment such as video cameras and digital voice recorders to complete research, and then book time in the newly installed editing suite to shape your resultant films. The MoCa Canteen is run by a local Aarhus sustainable food collective and is also an important social hub, while the adjoining flexible space provides a venue for receptions as well as the regular Friday evening bar. You will also have the opportunity to see the many changing exhibits at the Moesgaard Museum during your time here. As a student at Moesgaard, you can access the museum for free by showing your valid student card.
