Projektmodul II


Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

  • to provide students with additional factual and theoretical knowledge within the subject areas of the modules anchored at 2nd semester
  • to give them the opportunity to reflect critically on theories and their usability in particular contexts
  • to gather experience with empirical data collection and reflect on this
  • to gather experience in working in a team of people with different competences and cultural backgrounds
  • to practice working actively in an English-language project process
  • to practice discussing controversial issues while respecting other people’s opinions
  • to gain experience in collecting large quantities of data and information and processing it in order to solve a particular problem
  • to practise academic writing in English
  • to learn how to complete a project within a set deadline.

Students will choose a problem based within modules anchored at 2nd semester and work on it independently. The University provides academic supervision. Students must discuss various theories and select one or several which they believe to be relevant. Unless it is a purely theory-based project, students must discuss which type of empirical data might be relevant in this context and organise the data collection. The topic of the project must be formulated as a problem, and students must endeavour to answer this problem. The answer must be based on theoretical reflection and – unless it is a purely theory-based project – be empirically grounded. Purely descriptive projects are not acceptable.



  • possess additional factual knowledge of theories and practices within the fields covered in modules 9 to 14 and can reflect on these on a scientific basis
  • possess further knowledge and understanding of the themes within these fields and various approaches to the study of these.


  • can apply their knowledge to select theories that serve the analytical purpose and at the same time remain critical to these theories.
  • can collect empirical data systematically in order to solve a problem within the modules 9-14 and reflect critically on this process
  • can integrate theory and empirical data on an interdisciplinary basis
  • can communicate in written and spoken academic English.


  • can reflect and argue on the basis of scientific knowledge
  • can work purposely on an answer to a given problem and within a set deadline
  • can work in a team of people with different competences and cultural backgrounds.


The module consists of lectures and seminars, possibly with exercises and student contributions.
