Projektorienteret forløb, (praktikophold i Danmark eller i udlandet)

2018/2019

Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

he project oriented course (internship) and the element-based project work will be evaluated in two separate examinations (examinations 5 and 6), each of which will correspond to 15 ECTS, in total 30 ECTS credits.

The module comprises:

Part 1: a project oriented course (internship) in an institution, organisation or company in Denmark or abroad and a report on experience gained during the internship.

Part 2: an element-based project related to the internship.

In order to complete the module, students must pass both examinations.

The project oriented course (internship) may take place in an institution, organisation or enterprise abroad or in Denmark, where the student works with issues which are relevant to the programme, cf. section 8, subsection 2. For students who have chosen to specialise within Arctic Studies, the project oriented course must be topically relevant to this area specialisation. The project oriented course must be of the duration of at least three months and must possess an international or intercultural dimension. Suggestions made by the student as regards the subject of a project oriented course must be approved in advance by the study board.

Upon approval by the study board, the student may replace the project oriented internship by a student mobility stay at a university abroad or in Denmark offering courses at master level within central disciplinary areas of the programme, possessing an international or intercultural dimension and corresponding to 30 ECTS, cf. section 8, subsection 2. Study activities with appertaining examinations at the selected university must be approved in advance by the study board and will then replace the module “Project oriented course” with appertaining examinations.

The examination consists of element-based project work which is based on an issue relevant to the internship location. The project work, which must be written within the chosen stream of specialisation or in the cross-cutting generalist stream and have an international/intercultural perspective, is comprised of three separate elements. If the student has chosen the specialisation in Arctic Studies, the project elements must be written within the area. The project elements must be prepared individually and must not exceed 20 pages in total.

During the semester, students must prepare three draft versions (one for each project element) which must be discussed with their supervisor. At the end of the semester, students must submit one coherent report comprising the revised versions of the three project elements for a combined assessment.


1. The first project element of max. 5 pages must identify issues that are relevant to the internship and give an account of theories and/or studies which have dealt with similar or otherwise relevant issues as well as an initial problem formulation that must have an international/intercultural perspective.

2. In the second project element of max. 5 pages, the student must critically discuss possible methodological approaches to deal with the problem in focus. On the basis of the discussion, students must choose and describe a methodological framework, including description of data and possibly data collection, reflection on methods of analysis as well as possible ethic and practical issues.

3. The third project element of max. 10 pages must comprise the project’s analysis. This project element must be based on the theoretical and methodological choices made in the other two project elements and include discussions of the results of the analysis in relation to the problem formulation.

Finally, the student will submit all three project elements for a combined assessment.
