Programme components

This Master programme extends over two academic years (4 semesters) and constitutes a course load of 120 ECTS credits. The programme offers a combination of compulsory and elective courses. In order to graduate from the programme a student must have completed all compulsory courses, as well as a sufficient number of elective courses to achieve the total 120 ECTS credits required to complete the programme.

The first year of the study program consists largely of compulsory courses providing relevant knowledge and skills within Interaction design.  Central topics are: Scientific methodology and communication, human cognition and behaviour, usability theories and testing, tangible interaction, information architecture and user-centred and participatory design methodology.

The third and fourth semester of the study will give the students the opportunity to specialise in a relevant area of their choice. In the third semester students develop their thesis proposal and conduct a research-oriented project, which opens up for an individual specialisation. 

The fourth semester is devoted to writing your master thesis, with a duration of 20 weeks. The thesis must represent an academic progression in relation to practical, empirical and/or theoretical topics in relevant courses
