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.

Banking and Financial Markets Law - CANCELLED

CANCELLED

The course provides students with an in-depth understanding of the legal issues that arise in banking regulation and law. The course aims to investigate the recent developments in banking law, with the new legislation put in place at international and EU level in the aftermath of the crisis. 

The course is divided into three sections with different subject areas that disentangle the rationales and main elements of financial regulation into three components: the “why”, the “who” and the “how”. During the first section (the “why”), the reasons behind regulation and supervision of banks are dealt with. This section addresses the market failures associated with the banking sector (negative externalities, bank run, domino effect, bail out) from a law and economics perspective. During the second section (the “who”), the financial regulatory system, with the regulatory authorities and supervisory functions at the national level, at the European Union (EU) level as well as at the global level are identified and explained. During the third section (the “how”), focus is on substantive banking regulation. During this section, the regulation of payment and settlement systems, capital and liquidity controls, supervision of banks as well as bank insolvency and resolution is covered. The course ends by providing “glimpses” of Financial Technology (FinTech) and Money Law. By building on the knowledge gained through the course, this part aims to display and examine how financial technology is impacting traditional finance and business transactions. Topics i.e. BitCoin, peer-to-peer lending, blockchain technology, ICOs, will be dealt with.  

Recommended prerequisites: EU-law and company law.

Computer Science

Description

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

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

Decision, Persuasion, and Negotiation

Only online*:   the course is only offered as an online option.

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. Behaviors that are normative in one culture often create controversy and even legal action in other cultures, so it is vital to keep in mind the cultural differences when interacting with someone from a different culture. Cross-cultural persuasion and negotiation will be discussed to help the students understand which principles and strategies are universal across cultures, and which apply only to specific cultures.


Content
  • Two systems of thinking
  • Heuristics and biases in human judgment
  • Common persuasion techniques
  • Strategic decision making
  • Opportunities of value creation in integrative negotiation
  • Principles of value appropriation in distributive negotiation
  • Common pitfalls in decision-making, persuasion, and negotiation
  • Cultural differences and their influence on persuasion and negotiation

Engineering for Sustainability

Blended*:   the course is offered both online and on campus. If physical presence is not possible, the  course will still run online.

We believe that engineers can contribute to creating sustainable solutions for our future. This requires understanding of the interactions between technologies and systems with the world on a global scale. It requires a holistic approach, getting an insight in the consequences of our decisions: How can we create a solution that solves one problem without generating another problem somewhere else?
The course provides you with skills for understanding the challenges of sustainable development. You will get an introduction to Environmental System Analysis theory, methods and tools. You will learn when and how to apply such methods to the engineering tasks of assessing and designing sustainable solutions. We apply a systems approach throughout the course, and you will get insight in some of the societal frameworks and concepts to sustainability such as Industrial Ecology, Industrial Symbiosis, Circular Economy and Bio-Economy as well as the concept of Cleaner Technology/Best Available Technology and its role in EU environmental regulation. You will get an introduction to some of the core tools, e.g. Material Flow Analysis and Life Cycle Assessment. Further, you will get a good insight in the advanced Danish initiatives of sustainable development of the societal infrastructure systems such as energy and waste management systems.
The course is run by researchers from SDU Life Cycle Engineering. The aim of our research is to optimize engineering solutions with concerns for their resource consumption, energy efficiency and impacts on climate and environment. We strive to develop the knowledge and methods for achieving this insight from an overall holistic perspective. We are engaged in exciting projects in various areas, and we will include relevant examples from our ongoing projects in the course to give you an impression of “what’s going on right now” in these fields.


Mandatory prerequisites: You must have completed at least two years of studies in engineering, natural sciences, social sciences or economics and have an interest in sustainability.

Engineering Imagination

Only online*:   the course is only offered as an online option.

The mission of this interdisciplinary creative program for mixed students is to transform engineers into experience designers though the study of tangible fantasies.
Throughout the 2 week course, students in small teams will conceptualise, develop and test a concept for a Tangible Fantasy. Here a tangible fantasy is defined as a clear, definite and real idea with no current basis in reality. In short, the creation of an improbable thing.
The course will be split into 5 key phases, each phase lasting approximately 2 days.

Phase 1 - The Inspiration Bath

In this phase students will adopt an imaginative attitude. They will work with the core knowledge and skills used in the ideation and creative phases of experience design. They will build on their interdisciplinary research skills, teamwork skills, storytelling and artistic expression. This will lay the foundation for the future phases, and give a new perspective into how to add value via creative design.
Students will cain the core skills of deep personal reflection, understanding new possibilities, using readily available tools and techniques to create experiences, and will widen their toolbox of creative engineering options.
This phase can be seen as a “reboot” of classic engineering knowledge and skills, with a focus on how these skills can be transferred to the study of tangible fantasy.

Phase 2 - Knowledge and Research

In this phase, students will adopt a Transformative attitude. They will explore the core knowledge of a select number of theories and practice from the fields of:Emotional design
Neuroscience
Behavioral psychology
Design thinking
System design
Human centered design

Students will also be introduced to key methods and theories including
Pine and Gilmore’s Experience EconomyJordans Four Pleasure
Journey maps / experienced maps
Students will take practical class sessions and group work focusing on research via play in design
And Design anthropology. This will allow them to understand how to prototype, test and validate tangible fantasy concepts.

Phase 3 - Leadership and Imagination Management

In this phase students will adopt a courageous attitude. Students will be introduced to a range of flexible and adaptable leadership and management techniques that have been specially selected for working with projects with high risk, and intangible outcomes.

Tools introduced in this phase are:Planning / Mapping
Agile Project Management
Change Management
Value proposition canvas
Leadership


Phase 4 - Experimenting

In this phase students will adopt a collaborative attitude. Students will create and take part in practical experiments and reflect upon experience design in practice. Students will develop the core knowledge of how to elicit emotions, understand the relationship between technology and emotion, and will broaden their range of technical possibilities through experimentation. Students will build on core skills of Emotional intelligence, chaos management and their ability to break free of conventional engineering.

This phase will be taught via: workshops, group testing and practical experimentation.
Phase 5 - Production - Bringing it all to life
In this phase students will adopt an experiential attitude. Students will focus on how to explore, communicate, and validate the tangible fantasy concepts they have designed.

Core skills and knowledge for this phase will be:Understanding explorable worlds
Effectively engineering emotions
Creating customised experiences
Innovation in a non-engineering way
Creating differentiation through experience design

Recommended prerequisites: At least two years of studies.

Experimental Architecture. Computational Design and Digital Fabrication

Only on campus*:   the course will only be offered if physical presence on campus is possible; otherwise it will be cancelled.

Digital Fabrication technologies have the disruptive potential to revolutionize the way we conceive and shape our environment. Through the use of novel fabrication techniques designers and engineers are challenged to explore innovative structures that benefit from the capacity to produce performative and sustainable architecture with, up to now, unreached levels of complexity and strategic material organization.

The Summer School will focus on exploring ideas and producing design artifacts as answer to some fundamental driving questions: what kind of tectonic configurations can be enabled by means of digital fabrication such as additive and robotic manufacturing? How do we realize high-performance architecture with it? How can we build bespoke architecture in a sustainable way?

Adopting a design/make approach, catalyzed through tailored computational techniques, various structural configurations will be investigated. The school outcomes will be contributing to the creation of an atlas of digitally fabricated tectonic prototypes: experimental architectural configurations where material/form/structure are developed in a coherent design approach which takes full advantage of the potential of emergent fabrication techniques.

Galactic Dynamics and Dark Matter - NOT VALID SUMMER 2020

Description

Come and join the summer course “Galactic Dynamics and Dark Matter” at SDU. During the last decades we have learned that by far most of the matter in the Universe is in terms of Dark Matter, a form of matter that is still completely unknown to us, but which has controlled the development and stability of structure such as galaxies in the Universe.

A crucial  piece of evidence for the presence of DM comes from the dynamics of galaxies. This intensive course will introduce you to galactic dynamics and the role played by dark matter. Our tools will be advanced classical mechanics including Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics. We will develop galactic models and analyze galactic data in order to test the DM hypothesis. We will further look at the dynamics of larger structures like galaxy clusters.  

The course is run by Department of Physics Chemistry and Pharmacy. The research of the department covers a broad area, is interdisciplinary and includes the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics, one of the biggest centers for theoretical high energy physics in Europe. The department offers high quality study programmes in phyiscs at both Bachelor and Master level. All courses on the Master level are offered in English.

Manufacturing Technologies and Business Model Innovation in the Age of Sustainability - CANCELLED



The course will allow you to develop in-depth knowledge in an action-based approach. You will have the chance to apply content from lectures and discussions in exiting contexts within and outside of university boundaries. To achieve this, we will follow a process-based approach to get an initial holistic overview which we will then apply in practice-oriented activities.
We will jointly explore the following stages:
Stage 1: Smart ManufacturingThis part of the course will provide the participants with an introduction to Manufacturing Businesses of the Future. The students will get to know state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies (Industry 4.0 enabling technologies) from practical examples. Students will actively work in designing and modelling tools to create additional value in manufacturing and production settings. They will gain in-depth insights into the origin and application opportunities of Industry 4.0-related technologies, such as additive manufacturing, the Internet of Things (IoT) and/or simulation.
Stage 2: Business Model InnovationThis stage provides you with an understanding of the process of generating and evaluating new venture ideas. You will work in groups and you will relate your technology-based idea to the market, customer and competition side of a business case. Whereas the idea generation stage requires creative thought and search for novel ideas, the idea evaluation stage requires critical assessment of whether a successful business case can be derived from those ideas. We will use tools of business modeling and assumption testing that support you in making informed evaluations of the generated ideas.
Stage 3: SustainabilityWe will briefly explore the UN´s SDGs to get a holistic overview of sustainability as a paradigm. We will then view it from three perspectives, namely people, profit, and planet (social, economic, and environmental sustainability). We will investigate current case studies of businesses and initiatives within green businesses and develop a critical perspective regarding green washing and corporate social responsibility.
Stage 4: PracticeThis course will also offer you the opportunity to discuss your ideas in relation to real-life scenarios, for example with experts, such as company representatives or researchers, to allow for a critical reflection. You will learn how to communicate relevant and integral elements of your ideas.

Mandatory prerequisites: You must have completed at least two years of studies in engineering and basic knowledge of Industry 4.0 technologies in the context of manufacturing.
Recommended prerequisites: You must have an interest in sustainability as well as an entrepreneurial mindset (or willingness to develop one) and be interested in learning about technology-based business models for sustainability.

New corporate narratives: Sustainable development goals and organizational narratives

Only online*:   the course is only offered as an online option.

Target group: Bachelor and Master

This course focuses on “new narratives” of work and organization. An increasing number of organizations, from private businesses to public corporations, are putting sustainable development goals (SDGs) and matters of sustainability at the forefront of their communication strategies. Discourses of profit optimization, growth, revenue, financial performance and market domination seem to have lost their dominant standing in strategic organizational communication. Instead, organizations communicate transformed business models, sustainability in production and supply, mindfulness in employee voice and development, cultural and intersectional awareness, global fairness and fair leadership, paired with democratized (co-creative) and ethical work processes. One prominent example from the public sector is this summer course’s host itself, The University of Southern Denmark (SDU), that has announced, as the world’s first university, a total dedication to the UN world goals in their curricular and communicative strategy.

This summer school aims at casting a critical-analytical look at this new wave of corporate sustainability narratives. 

The course consists of two main pillars: one on narratives as a scientific field consisting of diverse strands and multiple strategies of inquiry, and one on corporate SDGs as a recent, new phenomenon. The summer course will show that narrative studies are apt in order to reflect, critically assess, and further explore new corporate communicative phenomena. 

a. Narratives as a scientific field with multiple strategies of inquiry. We will set aside time to provide a thorough introduction to the state of the art of narrative inquiry. Based on a general introduction to central theories and concepts within organizational communication and narrative studies, the course provides a scientific and research-based introduction to narrative studies and their use in organizations. We will introduce several kin of narrative (counter-narrative, storytelling, discourse, etc.) and discuss their value in understanding corporate change and communication practices. Methods and tools of narrative inquiry will be made tangible for the students, and we will demonstrate selected narrative ways of analysis.  

b. Sustainable development goals in corporations We will, inter alia, discuss fundamental theories in relation to function and task of a corporation. Are corporations, public or private, to serve sustainability values at all in the first place? We will also explore cases of new narrative “talk” and new narrative “walk”, where we discuss what claims are substantial and which ones are ceremonial in this sustainability turn. Manifold cases and tangible examples will introduce students to the latest research and business best practices as to new corporate narratives doing away with what can best described as “winner”-talk of the recent decades. We will further discuss how methods of storytelling can be applied to challenge and transform organizational practices, for instance through storytelling activism and with reflexive and change-oriented work with organizational narrative- small-story dynamics. Further, we will assess whether or not the new corporate narrative turn toward sustainability and SDGs is a believable and authentic new paradigm, and what corporations and society stand to gain from it. Is sustainability a buzzword that covers up more neoliberal growth and economy-fixated ideals or is it a promising and liberating concept that actually turns corporate foci more towards social and environmental issues?

Summer School programme: 10-19 August 2020. Exam period: 21-28 August 2020.

Quality education (Sustainable Development Goal 4), or the ‘right’ types of knowledge, skills, competencies and attributes embodied as human capital in real human beings, is a key driver of the resilience and wellbeing of people (micro) and societies (macro). This is true in today’s globalized knowledge economies; it is likely to be even more true in tomorrow’s automated robot economies. But precisely what is quality education for today and tomorrow, and why is it so important? Which policies are key in boosting it? Why should liberal democracies invest in inclusive and equitable quality education, and how can they do so smartly? We study a wide range of approaches, including Nobel Prize winning economists such as Paul Romer and James Heckman, as well as leading sociologists, political scientists and policy scholars to tackle this key question for building resilient societies.

To precisely understand and clearly formulate the key reasons and mechanisms for how and why human capital matters, both to academic audiences and to labor market audiences (such as employers) and public policy audiences.

Sustainable Development Goals and Global Production Systems: A new implementation challenge

Only online*:   the course is only offered as an online option.

Why the SDGs are important?
Since United Nations launched the global sustainability development goals for 2030 companies across the global have embraced strategies encompassing the SDGs. Contributing to reaching the SDGs is considered critical to gain legitimacy, increase competitiveness, build customer confidence and just get a license to operate in the near future. Yet, unless the companies manage to implement their commitment in the design of their (global) operations there is a danger the SDGs will maintain being strategic commitments only. The aim of the summer school course is to zoom in on the SGDs in general and in particular on the challenges pertaining to implementing them in global production systems/operations as wells as how to overcome the challenges.Knowledge about the SDGs and how to implement them in (global) production systems is very important in tomorrow's job market and students who have joined this course will have an edge in comparison to students without SDG implementation knowledge when entering the job market.

SDG content:The course starts with a broad introduction to the SDGs and places them in a broader perspective; the SDGs are contrasted with the sustainability ideals underpinning the Brundtland report, the triple bottom line, United Nations Guiding Principles etc. This is supplemented with an introduction to how companies located in developed and developing countries face different and similar challenges related to fulfilling the expectations to SDG-focused contemporary companies. When a deep understanding of the SDGs is in place the course introduces how companies can work with strategic hierarchies to be able to choose which SDGs the companies should embrace and how to translate them into a source of competitive advantages.After this strategic dimension the course zooms in on decent work, SDG 8, where the students are introduced to three elements concerning how to create synergies between design of operations and decent work. All lectures include materials focusing on both companies located in developing and developed countries. The first pillar covered is about the linkage between production planning, forecasting and SGD 8; the idea is that companies with advanced planning and forecasting competencies can plan the work schedule better and thereby avoid or reduce stress and overtime (including the implications for work-life balance and forced labor). The second pillar focus on job design and the linkage between job design, efficiency, ergonomics and employee well-being. This pillar also briefly touches on how Lean can play a role in ensuring a more efficient productions set up in combination with improved working conditions. The last pillar, looks into the interface between human and technology and how technology can be used and developed in a more employee friendly manner.
The course is divided so the students have a lecture half of the day while the other half of the day they work with a practical assignment.

Mandatory prerequisites: Enrolled in an engineering, social science or business bachelor’s degree program or the equivalent.
Recommended prerequisites: Basic prior knowledge about CSR and/or sustainability is an advantage.
