Option 1: Project Semester – with or without Integrated Internship
The students can choose to carry through a traditional project semester which normally carries on the subject knowledge in which the student has specialized at the 1st and 2nd semesters and/or prepare for the subject about which the student wishes to write his/her thesis. The semester comprises the preparation of a project report or a scientific article.
The student can choose to integrate an internship either in Denmark or abroad in his/her project semester. The internship is typically of 3 months’ duration and has to be approved by the semester coordinator on behalf of the Study Board of Planning, Geography and Surveying in advance. For each individual internship, specific learning goals have to be drawn up, clearly reflecting the professional problem of the project. The specific learning goals have to be approved by the semester coordinator.
Students who choose not to integrate an internship can combine a 20 ECTS project module with
2 x 5 ECTS course modules, chosen from existing master’s programmes, eg. Water and Environment, Biology, Urban Planning and Management, Environmental Management and Sustainability Science.
Students completing the project module acquire the following:
Problem-based project work, possibly with internship integrated.
