Structure and Content

The LAICS Master is a 2 year part-time education. The programme is spread over 4 semesters and grouped around 4 modules at a total of 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. Each module is worth 15 ECTS credits.

LAICS modules are offered as part of the LAICS Master or can be taken as single modules – or as part of a Flexible Master.  Upon successful completion of a single module including assignments, readings and exams, proof of credit (15 ECTS) will be granted. Modules are paid one module at a time.

Modules may be taken in random order with the exception of Module 4 - the final Master Thesis - which can only be taken after successful completion of modules 1, 2 and 3. However, if you are planning to take the full Master then it is advisable to take Modules 1 and 2 prior to enrolling on Module 3.

Modules 1 and 3 are only offered in the Autumn semester and Modules 2 and 4 are only offered in the Spring semester.

Each LAICS module is delivered over the course of 3 intensive residential seminars. The duration of each seminar is typically 3½ days. In between the seminars participants read, work in groups and participate in virtual dialogues. Seminars are taking place at conference centres in Denmark and abroad.

The LAICS Master is an international programme which is delivered in English. All literature,  teaching and exams (oral and written) are conducted in English.
