...the degree leading to many career openings
...Language, literature, communication, media
In the Danish Studies programme you are first provided with a broad and thorough knowledge of Danish literature, language and culture through introductory courses in which you acquire the basic competences in the subject and are provided with a survey of literary, linguistic and cultural developments. These sometimes begin with the basics, as for example in grammar classes, and sometimes, as in literature courses, build on your already acquired knowledge. In addition you get to know Norwegian and Swedish language and literature. You will be studying not merely various types of recent and earlier literature, but also a variety of other kinds of everyday textual communication, right from the first runic inscriptions to the most modern printed and electronic mass culture and multimedia: working with them provides insights into Danish cultural developments and mentalities in our times, and their historical background.
At the start of the academic year our students organize an introductory arrangement for newcomers, who will be welcomed into an active student environment, some of it centring on ‘Slyngelstuen’ (the Robbers’ Den), where you can meet other students from all years for a quiet exchange of views and experiences over a coffee or the like.
Most of the teaching is in Danish, and the same applies to exams and assignments.
