The module is based on an internship in an institution, organisation or enterprise abroad or in Denmark, in which the student has work tasks that are relevant to the programme. For students who have chosen to specialise within Arctic Studies, the project-oriented course must be topically relevant to this area of specialisation. The project-oriented course must be of a duration of at least three months, full-time (equivalent to 37 hours per week) and must include an international or intercultural dimension.
Type of instruction is described in § 17 in the curriculum.
|Name of exam||Project Oriented Course, Module II: Element based project|
|Type of exam|
Written examAn internal, written examination in: Project-Oriented Course project.
The student produces an element-based project, within a problem area relevant to the internship host. The project report must have an international/intercultural dimension and is comprised of three separate elements. If the student has chosen to specialise in Arctic Studies, the project elements must be written within this area. The project-oriented course project must be prepared individually and must not exceed 20 pages in total.
During the semester, the student is expected to prepare three draft versions (one for each element) for discussion with their supervisor. At the end of the semester, the student must submit one coherent project comprising the revised versions of the three elements for a combined assessment.
1. The first element must identify issues that are relevant to the project-oriented course 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 element, the student must critically discuss, choose and describe a methodological framework, including description of data and/or sources, reflection on methods of analysis as well as possible ethic and practical issues.
3. The third element comprises the analysis and conclusions of the project. 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. The conclusion must include reflections on how the host institution could use the findings of the project,
Finally, the student must revise and join all three elements in a coherent project report to be submitted for assessment.
