Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 14500 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kandidat.au.dk/en/agro-environmental-management/
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 managemental 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 mean 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 in the Agro-Environmental Management MSc programme, you will be challenged and stimulated at both the scientific and social levels. 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.

Agrobiology | Master 2 years

Agrobiology

Master (2 years) of Agrobiology, 120 ECTS
Agriculture and environment Mathematics, natural- and computer science

Campus Aarhus
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 14500 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kandidat.au.dk/en/agrobiology/
Developing solutions for healthy food production while decreasing environmental impact and increasing animal welfare is the main focus of 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 broad science-based with a focus on applicability and problem-solving and takes an integrative approach to learn 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 across-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.

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, extrasolar 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.

Website https://kandidat.au.dk/en/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 datasets 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 these skill-sets.

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.

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.

Website masters.au.dk/cognitive-science
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 studies. 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.

GLOBAL FINANCIAL MARKETS

Financial markets are vital to the current and future stability of firms, government bodies, nations – and of course to individuals and to society as a whole. The MSc in Finance will provide you with the knowledge and competencies you need to work in the world of international finance.

The MSc in Finance fuses rigorous academic research with applied skills and competencies. The programme will prepare you for today’s highly developed and integrated financial markets, in which graduates with degrees in finance are increasingly sought at the highest international level.

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 (as an exchange student) at one of three hundred partner universities abroad. 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.

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.

How can CO2 quotas be priced and distributed efficiently? Which pipelines need to be built in order to secure the EU’sfuture gas supply? Do Bangladeshi farmers benefit more from direct financial support or price guarantees? How many cars will need parking space in Copenhagen in 2020? What are the costs and benefits of spreading public sector activities, e.g.decentralize university educations to a higher degree? How many cars will need parking space in Copenhagen in 2021 –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 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 organizations 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.

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 semiglobalisation, 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 semiglobalised 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.

Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 10000 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://kandidat.au.dk/en/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 the student 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. The students 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 omnichannel 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 are thus developing towards a much-needed B2B2C mindset. The degree programme reflects this B2B2C mindset since the courses Supplier-retailer relations management, Businessnegotiations and Consumer behaviour in a retail setting cover the entire value chain from supplier to consumer. Furthermore, the students will acquire competencies 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 recur in many courses.

Management accounting is fundamental to business administration. The MSc programme in Management Accounting and Control covers management accounting techniques and their application in production companies, service industries, and in the public sector. 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 semesters. This creates an appetite for more theory and is the foundation for writing a solid thesis.

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.

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 associated with the cultural and creative 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.

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 the 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 public administration.

Website https://kandidat.au.dk/en/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 have 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.

Cultural and language differences shape the everyday life of individuals and organizations in our increasingly interdependent and transnational world. These cultural and language entanglements include different histories and conflicts and are represented in different media and literature. The increased interconnectivity and transnational mobility of both people and mediated information demand new sensitivities and skills to understand, analyze and negotiate cultural difference. The Intercultural Studies program prepares students to analyze different contemporary contexts of identity negotiation and interaction and to engage in planning for professional interaction in globalizing 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 conceptualizations 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 competencies in working innovatively on intercultural issues within and beyond organizations.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The four different foreign-language combinations follow a 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.

Website 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.
