Education

The Faculty offers a wide range of English-taught courses at both undergraduate and graduate level within the Faculty's core disciplines, i.e. Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology. With the exception of a few courses designed particularly for international students, the courses taught in English are also open to Danish students - offering international students the opportunity to learn about Danish culture and society on a first-hand basis. The form and content of the courses are regularly improved to cover the needs of Denmark and the international community.

International standards

The Faculty's degree programmes follow international standards for university education and are divided into a three-year bachelor's, two-year master's programme and a two-year research programme (PhD), respectively.

Global vision

Since the establishment of various European student exchange programmes in the late 1980's, the Faculty of Social Sciences has attracted substantial numbers of international guests and exchange students each year - a number that continues to rise! Also the Department of Economics' Master's degree in Economics continues to thrive and contribute to a campus environment that continues to grow evermore international.

New campus environment

In August 2005, the Faculty of Social Sciences moved to the premises of the former municipal hospital of Copenhagen. This new location offers our students an attractive and inspiring place to study and strengthens our students' social life and sense of community.
