New Master's Programmes

Global Careers
The University of Copenhagen offers the following three new Master's degree programmes:

Master of Arts (MA) in Advanced Migration Studies
The Master’s degree in Advanced Migration Studies is an ambitious, interdisciplinary two-year degree programme offered in English that provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the opportunities and challenges presented by international migration. The programme combines humanities and social science approaches to migration, including ethnology, anthropology, sociology, sociology of religion, history, philosophy, political science, sociolinguistics, education, and literary and media studies.

Master of Science (MSc) in Security Risk Management
The MSc in Security Risk Management provides students with a solid theoretical and empirical knowledge about security policy, risk analysis and organisations in a global and changeable world. This includes an introduction to Security and Strategy Studies, Political Risk Analysis, Organisational Studies and Risk Communication. The purpose of the programme is to train graduates to identify opportunities for change in the complex and risky environments in which they operate and to put these reflections into action. The programme offers an innovative combination of research-based and active teaching, in close interaction with practitioners and real-life work situations. An important element of the programme is thus a continuous engagement with people from outside academia who are already working on these issues. Hence you will regularly meet future employers and learn from their experiences.

Master of Science (MSc) in Global Development
Globalisation has radically changed the way people live all over the world. Massive economic growth in the emerging markets and other economies has lifted billions of people out of poverty while many continue to live in poor conditions. The MSc in Global Development provides graduates with the qualifications required to understand, analyse and act in this new and globalised world.
