Programme structure

Master courses

Our MSc. programme has two specialisations with suggested study paths according to the scheme below. As admitted to one of these you are automatically admitted to the first two courses within the respective specialisation. However, within the limitations of the degree requirements (see below) and the periods of the year when the courses are given, you can tailor your studies to your own interests by combining courses from the two specialisations (provided that you fulfil the admission requirements for the specific courses). Also, note that you only need to take at least three of these 15-credit master courses to obtain a degree, while the 45-credit degree project is mandatory. Questions about this can be directed to your student counsellor.
