Nordic Visual Studies and Arts Education

The specialization in Nordic Visual Studies and Art education (NoVA) is offered to you, who want to give your communication master a visual profile and work internationally with contemporary visual communication. The specialization offers a broad range of study areas including:

  • Nordic digital technologies
  • Digital media
  • New technologies
  • Communication
  • Critical pedagogy with social and cultural awareness
  • Contemporary art didactics
  • visual culture developed in the Nordic region.

The specialization will give you relevant competencies and interaction skills for working in cross-cultural and international educational situations and environments.

Teaching is provided by four Nordic universities, and each student will study in person at two universities (Aalborg University in Copenhagen and a NoVA partner university).

NoVA is based on e-learning, contact teaching, and face-to-face meetings. The idea of blended learning is the foundation of NoVA. Learning by doing, problem oriented approaches, and learning by using is integrated with practical and theoretical e-learning based activities. Contact teaching is a combination of lectures, seminars, peer working and student presentations, using multimodal approaches: texts, images, audio, and different physical and digital interfaces and communication.

The teaching language is partly English and partly Danish.

The specialization is offered only in Copenhagen.
