Projektmodul I


Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

The objective of this module is:

  • to provide students with additional factual and theoretical knowledge within the subject areas of modules 1-8, and to give them the opportunity to reflect on theories and their usability in specific contexts in a critical a manner.
  • 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 potentially 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 form groups and define a problem within modules 1 - 8. The group will work on the problem independently. The university provides academic supervision.  Students must discuss various theories and select one or several, which they deem 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 seek 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 1 to 8 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 1-8 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 the written student project. The project must be written in groups of 3 to 6 students. Students intending to write the project alone or in a two-person group must apply to the study board for dispensation from this general rule.
