The Danish Programme gives you a broad knowledge of Danish literature, language and culture, as well as an insight into Norwegian and Swedish literature and language.
The Master Programme in Danish offers a range of literary, linguistic and media related courses for you to choose from.
You are able to influence the composition of your master by selecting courses offered by the Department of Danish, as well as courses offered by other academic study boards which have been approved by the department. Courses which have been offered in recent years include: Challenges of the Danish Language – Does Danish have a Future, Death from Rødby: Helle Helle’s Authorship, Substance and Form in Modernity and Modernism, The Concept of Style in other Art Forms than Literature, Media Flow, and Literature of the German Occupation.
Where as the Bachelor Programme offers a solid foundation, the Master Programme is characterised by a series of directions such as: Immersion, analysis, critical reflection and specialisation. When writing your thesis, you will get the chance to demonstrate your skills in all areas.
As a Master of Danish (and a possible other course), you have plenty of opportunities to join the work force. Many Danish graduates work in the educational sector, either at the universities, teacher’s colleges, upper secondary schools or folk schools, while others work with communication in various organisational contexts, in publishing, with municipal projects or at cultural centres. If your focus is on working as an upper secondary teacher, make sure you select programmes which enable you to teach, i.e.; choose an elective worth 95 ECTS credits.
