Core Courses

New Media and Changing Communities
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

How do new media and tech facilitate or challenge democracy, collaboration, and community building? The ambition of this course is to understand the historical and contemporary importance of media in creating communities. Hone your critical media literacy and examine how both new and existing communities are imagined, constructed, and represented in online media and tech. The course also focuses on the controversy of surveillance, privacy, and the dark side of the web.


Strategic Communication
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course introduces you to the field of strategic communication in Denmark and the UK. Through Field Studies, case studies, guest lectures, and Study Tours, you gain first-hand knowledge of how communication professionals work. Classes are built around Danish and European case studies, giving you a framework to evaluate and create strategic communication campaigns to prepare you for strategic communication tasks in the real world.

Strategic Communication:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: London

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.

While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives.
