Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts

Institution University of Southern Denmark (SDU)
Campus Odense
Duration 2 years
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 3100 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 0 EUR
Website https://www.sdu.dk/en/Uddannelse/Kandidat/Amerikanske_studier

Description

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

Career Opportunities  

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

About the programme

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Admission  

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

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

Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 320 EUR
Website https://www.sdu.dk/en/uddannelse/sdu_summer_school/summerschool_courses
The summer school course combines theory and practice by enabling students to plan and carry out their own behavior design studies in order to induce more sustainable behavior. Thus, one focus will be on changing the behaviors of individuals and on testing the approaches. 
In parallel, this summer school course will consider the role of organizations (private companies, NGOs etc.) in initiating and communicating change towards sustainability. One of the summer school course’s modules will be dedicated to learning about theories and practices of organizational change. We will assess these changes (e.g., towards “greener” packaging, sustainable business models, or corporate responsibility) and learn how to distinguish greenwashing and ceremonial talk from honest business model changes. We will approach these topics against the backdrop of discussions centering on behavioral change in consumers and employees. The summer school also includes a hands-on training on how to initiate change with friends and co-workers. 
The empirical approach taken will empower students to implement real-life studies, as well as document and report these studies in scientific ways. 

Mandatory prerequisites:
A reading list will be provided before the summer school. Students have to prepare the course reading in advance. 

Recommended prerequisites:
It is recommended that the student has basic knowledge within the following subject areas: 
  • having some experience in user studies would be helpful 
  • some understanding of what motivates people will be useful

Organizations must rethink and optimize their existing strategies to meet their sustainable business goals due to the constant depletion of vital resources and societal issues’ greater demands. The increasing population not only has an impact on natural resources; it also results in more significant pollution and contributes to greater levels of poverty. With these considerations, on September 25, 2015, some countries adopted a new set of sustainable development goals (SDGs) to end poverty and to improve prosperity worldwide. Seventeen sustainable goals have been targeted to achieve by 2030 under the new sustainable development agenda (UN.org, 2015). Further, these sustainable goals encompass a range of perspectives and various levels of applications, including supply chain management. In recent years, academicians, researchers, and practitioners have addressed supply chain management issues because of their significant impacts on organizational developments regardless of the field of applications. Researchers around the globe are exhibiting increased interest in how the circular economy (CE) may contribute to the SDG’s. The level of widespread acceptance being generated clearly shows the potential necessity of implementing CE. Nations are feeling pressure from an alarming decrease in resources, pollution, political insecurity, and safety breaches. Contrary to the conventional or linear economy approach, which utilizes the take-use-dispose model, the CE model focuses on value creation by closing the loop. The CE model works as a natural system by using the values of the material, energy, and other resources within a particular ecosystem as a single loop. Hence, in recent years, the CE model has gained popularity among businesses and communities. This course will provide you with skills to the current practices of circular economy (CE) and SDG’s for business and engineers and identify and critically discuss the connection between linear/circular economies and environmental sustainability generally and between circular economies and SDG’s specifically. We will apply the Design and systems approach to solve business and engineering tasks. The course sessions use traditional teaching, case-based real-life problems solving tasks, and industrial visits. 

Mandatory prerequisites:
Enrolled in an engineering, social science or business bachelor’s degree program or the equivalent.

Two years of studies at university level (equivalent to 120 ECTS) within a relevant field of study, before the summer school starts.

Recommended prerequisites:
Basic prior knowledge about sustainability and/or, supply chain management is an advantage.

Description

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

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

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

Career Opportunities  

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

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

About the Degree

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

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

Admission  

To be admitted to this programme, you must hold a bachelor's degree or other degree based on at least three years of higher education after the high school level. You must have qualifications in computer science corresponding to at least 100 ECTS.
 

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

Like it or not, we have to make numerous decisions every day, and most of our decisions concern how to persuade, how to negotiate, and how to exert influence on other people. Being effective in decision making, persuasion and negotiation is indispensable to be successful in almost any profession. Research has shown, however, even intelligent people are biased in ways that seriously limit the quality of their decisions and compromise their potential in persuading and influencing others. 

This course aims to help the students become more effective in decision-making, persuading, and negotiating. We will study the rationales that drive human behavior and the common biases that affect the quality of decisions, with a thorough examination of behavioral perspectives on decision-making, persuasion, and negotiation. We will go through applications of these principles in sales and marketing, financial decision-making, behavioral design, and product design (e.g., mobile apps). Cross-cultural persuasion and negotiation will be also discussed to help the students understand which principles and strategies are universal across cultures, and which apply only to specific cultures.

Description

The business world is becoming increasingly internationalised. Today, this goes not only for major conglomerates, but for many small and medium-sized companies as well. This development often challenges the current understanding of business economics and language skills.

This programme enables you to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. You will obtain solid language skills in addition to a comprehensive knowledge of business economics, in a global as well as a regional context. Here, students of many different nationalities study alongside Danish students, creating a truly international atmosphere on campus.

The programme addresses all of the basic subject areas of Business Administration, i.e. courses developed at university level in Organisation, Corporate Finance, Marketing, Accounting, Business Law, Business IT, Statistics as well as Micro- and Macro-economics. In addition, the programme offers specialised courses on a range of international, European, and regional topics.

During the third year, students have the opportunity to choose a company internship or a semester abroad, by taking advantage of our extensive network of partner institutions.

The programme ends with a Bachelor’s project during the sixth semester. This offers you the opportunity – usually in collaboration with a business or an organization – to put into practice the knowledge you have acquired. The project therefore makes it possible for you to specialise in one of the subjects or one of the areas you have become particularly interested in during your study.

Learning outcomes

The Bachelor has thorough insight into all the main disciplines of business economics as well as providing a basic knowledge of law, economics, statistics, and IT systems relevant to companies.

Through elective modules, the Bachelor allows you to extend this knowledge to international context, with special attention to marketing and management.

Career Opportunities  

The specialisation gives a solid, coherent knowledge about business economics in an international perspective.

In addition, the programme is an ideal foundation for further training and specialisation.

Admission  
The programme requires an Upper Secondary School Leaving Certificate or an equivalent foreign qualifying examination. Furthermore, you have to meet the following entry requirements:
  • Mathematics – Danish B-level
  • History, History of Ideas, Contemporary History or Social Studies – Danish B-level
In addition, documentation may be required to verify your English proficiency.

Website https://direc.to/iJNE

With an MSc in Engineering - Electronics you will be a specialist in power electronics and embedded systems, which are found in almost all electronic equipment today. You will learn to combine the two academic fields in practice and thereby play a central role in the development of the future's intelligent products. For example, hybrid and electric cars use power electronics and intelligent control systems to reduce the energy consumption. 

First-Job Guarantee

As an engineering student at SDU Sønderborg, you are guaranteed your first job when you finish your MSc studies (applies for students starting from September 2020). Read more about the unique “first job guarantee” scheme. 

Most electronics today contain power electronics and embedded systems in one form or another and this trend is on the rise with future products and production becoming increasingly intelligent and energy-optimized. This means that more and more electronics are based on power electronics, embedded systems and control technology. Therefore, there is a demand for electronic engineers with expertise in these fields. 
 

Three themes

At the programme you will be educated within three main themes: power electronics, embedded systems and integrated application with focus on industrial applications.

Power electronics
The world's collective energy consumption is soaring which has led to increased focus on the need to convert energy production from the use of fossil fuels to renewable energy, for example in the form of sun and wind energy. Power electronics is the key to new sustainable energy solutions. 

In short, power electronics is the optimal conversion of electrical energy form to another. For example, changing the between AC and DC or changing the amplitude, phase, or frequency. This could for example be the electronic system that converts the electrical power produced by a wind turbine to the desired amplitude and frequency for the power grid. The use of electric energy conversion is increasing as enhanced electrification is driven by the green transition and as the evolution of power electronic components is undergoing a rapid development.

Embedded systems 
The programme's second field is embedded systems, which are found in most electronic equipment and smart solutions. To add (more) intelligence to the products and services of the future, embedded systems are used. Embedded systems are found everywhere and are used in all market sectors such as energy, health care, environment, agriculture, communication, entertainment, textiles, transport, logistics, chemistry, food and materials. 

Integrated application
Examples of integrated applications where the combination of power electronics and embedded systems plays a major role: 
  • Power electronics and embedded system, used for controlling the rotation speed of wind turbines in order to produce maximum power
  • Energy from solar panels is converted into power by utilization of power electronics and embedded systems 
  • The transportation sector is a major energy consumer where hybrid and electric cars rely on power electronics, embedded systems and control in order to reduce the energy consumption 
  • Storage of energy in water reservoirs or pressure tanks is done by means of power electronics combined with embedded systems 
  • Power electronics and embedded systems are used in space crafts and satellites for converting energy from solar panels, fuel cells and batteries 
  • Consumer and industrial products such as phones, televisions, computers, kitchen appliances, cars, robots etc.
Read more about the structure of the programme. 

Project and research-based learning environment 

You will be part of a based and collaborative learning environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out projects within the allocated time. Projects typically come from companies, and we emphasize the importance of solving problems from 'real life'.  

Career opportunities

The programme offers a range of career options both in Denmark and abroad. You can get a job as a development and research engineer or project leader in development projects, technical manager, consultant or contractor. It is typically within branches which work with the development of electronic products, green technology, sustainable energy and transport systems.
Read more about the career options.

You can also continue with a 
3-year research training programme, which leads to a PhD. For graduate engineers there is also the option to carry out an industrial PhD programme, which is conducted in close collaboration with a company where you will be employed.

We need environmental engineers to turn the tide
Massive climate challenges and scarce natural resources threaten our future. Therefore, we need environmental engineers to turn the tide– and this could be you. The programme provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the environmental consequences of our consumption. You will learn to design eco-friendly and eco-efficient solutions, which point in a green and future-oriented direction.By choosing the M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering at the University of Southern Denmark you will become a specialist in environmental system analysis, environment and resource efficiency of systems, products and technologies and your job profile will be the environmental expert in the creation of new and more sustainable solutions in industry, consultancies, authorities or research institutions.Read more about the structure of the study programme, the subject areas of the environmental engineer or meet researchers and teachers in environmental engineering.   

Three core disciplines of Environmental Engineering

These three core disciplines are integrated in the study programme:

1. Understanding sustainability:
 Looking at global environmental challenges, the role of Design-for-Environment, strategies for mitigation of environmental impacts and resource depletion.

2. Environmental technology:
 Strategies and technologies for the management and treatment of wastewater and solid waste.

3. Eco-efficient Engineering:

We live in a new era when ideas, technologies, people, and diseases cross borders at a speed that was unseen before. It creates new opportunities as well as new risks. That is why leaders and experts work on a new development agenda to guide humanity to safety and prosperity. The new agenda is based on a set of certain development goals which all together can be called sustainable development goals (SDGs).  The course, “Global Challenges I: The SDGs relevance for the Social Sciences I”, discusses with the students the academic and policy-related approaches to deal with SDGs. An understanding of SDGs is important to the future social scientist, as well as to an ordinary member of a social community. This course allows students to embrace the complexity of sustainable development from economic, legal, cultural, political, and historical perspectives. Understanding the complexity should show the ways how the humankind could answer the challenges of the time.  To achieve the aim, we apply the seeking-for-a-solution- based teaching approach.

Description

The BSc in Flensburg and Sønderborg combines business economics and business language (English and Danish), and qualifies you for internationally-oriented jobs in private enterprises as well as in public organisations.

The programme is offered in cooperation with the University of Flensburg, and is based in both Flensburg and Sønderborg. This means that it has a significant international focus, both in terms of the subjects taught and in terms of the study environment.

The international focus is reflected in the double degree that you will obtain upon graduation: a German as well as a Danish bachelor degree.

Programme Structure

This Bachelor is a three-year programme, with the first two years spent studying introductory and compulsory modules across languages, economics, work psychology, accounting, law, statistics, marketing, theory of social sciences, and many more. These modules are intended to provide a solid foundation upon which to move into the third year, where you can study more specialised elective modules or study at a university abroad, and spend the final semester with a focus on writing your Bachelor project.

Career Opportunities  

This is the study programme for you if you want to combine study in business language with studies in business economics. Faced with growing political, economic, cultural, and social globalisation, business employees will have to be able to work across national and linguistic borders.

Graduates from this programme possess a range of competencies which qualify them for employment in internationally-oriented businesses, organisations, and institutions within both the private and public sector.

Graduates are able to conduct comparative analyses and evaluations of economic and linguistic business problems in connection with international activities; to conduct, participate, and solve internal and external communication tasks involved in the process.

In addition to insight into the discipline of business economics, graduates also have knowledge of cultural and socioeconomic relations and their effect upon linguistic and business economic issues. This includes knowledge of the relationship between psychology and communication and its influence on the transmission of messages to various target audiences. Graduates are proficient in oral and written English and Danish.

The science and engineering associated with light-matter interactions in nanostructured materials is of crucial importance both in next-generation photonic technologies and in fundamental explorations at the boundary of classical and quantum physics. This course introduces tools used to model and understand the behavior of light in atoms and materials that are structured on small scales compared with the free-space optical wavelength, and is intended for students with a background in the physical sciences or engineering with a familiarity of basic electromagnetism and quantum mechanics.  We will review simple concepts of electromagnetism, relating far and near-field microscopy, propagating and evanescent waves, as well as linear and nonlinear response theory based on classical and quantum mechanical approaches. These concepts will then be applied to study light-matter interactions in quantum light emitters and low-dimensional systems, with special emphasis on plasmon- and exciton-polaritons in 2D materials (e.g., graphene or atomically-thin semiconductors) for applications in optical sensing, thermo-optical phenomena, all-optical transistors, quantum light generation, and quantum information technology.

By “narrative medicine” we mean medicine and health care studies practiced with narrative skills of recognizing, absorbing, interpreting, and being moved by the stories of illness. The field is defined by MD and Professor Rita Charon, Columbia University, around 2000. Narrative medicine aims for a deep integration of humanities and the arts, particularly literature, in medical and healthcare education. Additionally, narrative medicine has been used in health promotion and humanistic rehabilitation of ill and vulnerable people. The cross-disciplinary field is committed to the realization that a portion of the evidence in the medical and health humanities will be found not in numbers but in language and stories. 

Generally biomedical sciences are interested in the generalities and categories, whereas narrative medicine privileges particular individual narratives and attends to the meaning that the patient develops. The ability to see each patient as a complete human being is the basis for the trust and understanding that helps the person through the hard times. This narrative competence is built mainly through close reading of literary texts and creative writing of participants’ own stories.  

The Summer School on narrative medicine is open for everyone in health care and in the humanities. Whether you are a bachelor or a master student, you will be offered an individualized, and all exams are portfolio exams.  
The Summer School is led by scholars of humanities who have extensive experience from our regular courses of narrative medicine at University of Southern Denmark. Guest lectures are given by medical professors and clinicians associated with narrative medicine. Sessions of facilitated close reading and creative writing are combined with group work and small presentations. 

Course material is the new research anthology Narrative Medicine in Education, Practice, and Interventions (in process, 2022) edited by scholars from University of Southern Denmark and a selection of primarily literary texts, but also art works and films. 

Mandatory prerequisites:
One year of studies at university level (equivalent to 60 ECTS) within a relevant field of study, before the summer school starts. 

Admission/Tuition: 
Exchange students from a partner university pay no tuition. 
Guest students pay tuition fees. Please read more: https://www.sdu.dk/en/Uddannelse/SDU_summer_school/Fees

Find the answer to why and how technology works 

During your studies you will find the answer to why and how technology works – and you will use that knowledge to develop, for example, optically based faster computers or new optical measurement methods for diagnosing cancer, or ultra-sensitive sensors capable of detecting the presence of just a few molecules of narcotics or explosives.Since the invention of the laser some fifty years ago, optics and especially nanotechnology have undergone a rapid development and become significant parts of physics, technology and industry as well as of our everyday lives. Just imagine that without the laser, things such as the DVD-player would not have existed and you would not have been able to print on a laser printer.With a master programme in Physics and Technology you will acquire specialist skills in a broad area, primarily linked to the design and fabrication of nanostructured functional materials as well as the characteristics of light and its interaction with atoms, molecules and matter. Applications that exploit these aspects are the primary focus of this academic profile.  

Science of light and color 

Optics is not about glasses and contact lenses; it is about the science of light and color. The programme includes theories on how to produce light in for example lasers, the scattering of light in different matters, and theories of how light interacts and exchanges energy with the matter. Laser light interacting with a nanostructured noble metal is confined to the metal surface; something which will enable you to use nanometre thin gold wires to guide light. You build on your already strong foundation in physics, technology and mathematics. This provides you with a deeper knowledge of especially advanced optics, quantum physics, material physics and molecule physics, nanophysics and the fabrication of nanostructures. These subjects enable you to work interdisciplinary in this rapidly changing high-tech world with challenges in academic frontier areas. In addition, you will acquire expertise in measuring and analyzing signals – with special focus on, for example, highly sensitive sensors combined with intelligent data analysis. 
In your master thesis project you can work in one of the university's exciting research areas related to the academic profile.
This could for example be nanooptics, where you utilize the fact that light can be intensified millions of times when it interacts with tiny gold particles. By optimizing this process it is possible to create highly sensitive single-molecule sensors which can detect, for example, pesticides on the surface of vegetables or fruits.

Project-based and research-based study environment 

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. Usually we receive the project outlines from companies and we emphasise that the problems you solve are ‘real world’ problems.
Learn more from the students themselves.
 

Versatile career paths

With a degree in Physics and Technology you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could work in high-tech companies or at universities as a researcher or developer in areas of e.g. optical design and systems, nanotechnology, sensor technology, aerospace engineering, material engineering, and computer modelling of systems. It is also possible to continue on a three-year research programme, which will lead to a PhD degree. Another option is to participate in an industrial PhD programme, which is carried out in a close collaboration between the university and a company where you are employed. Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Physics and Technology).

Our universe presents us with a tantalizing riddle, namely to understand the structure of its “dark sector”. This sector includes the dark matter, which could be a new particle and/or black holes. The course will provide an introduction to the topic of dark matter as a whole and discuss some candidates. In the second part, the course links to the topic of neural networks, which are becoming powerful tools to tackle deep questions in fundamental physics, including the structure of the dark sector. Finally, networks show up in the fundamental physics of the universe in a different way, namely as a proposal for the deep structure of spacetime itself. This course will link a theoretical overview of some of the most exciting questions in fundamental physics with applications that bridge the gap to computer science and is suitable for students with a range of different backgrounds in physics (both applied and theoretical), computing and mathematics.

Academic preconditions:
Students taking the course are expected to:
- have knowledge of classical mechanics and basic knowledge of special relativity.
- [Optional] basic differential calculus and fundamental skills of Python.

Are you interested in transnational business and entrepreneurship? Or how ideas travel around? Or how migration shapes our economies? The era of globalization has connected business and trade across borders in multiple ways, facilitating transnational entrepreneurship, movement of people and their ideas, fostering innovation, investment, global supply chains and cosmopolitan diasporas. During the recent turbulent times, entrepreneurial ecosystems connecting local with global forming cross-border social capital and knowledge networks have manifested their importance for regional development and resilience.
