The admission requirement for the Master's degree programme in Culture, Communication and Globalization is a completed relevant Bachelor's degree. A Bachelor's degree is considered relevant if its central subjects provide the student with competencies which are equivalent to at least 30 ECTS within one or more subject areas of the CCG programme, e.g. international and/or intercultural relations, cultural studies, communication relevant to the scope of the CCG programme, consumption and market communication, organisation and management, global politics, migration and movements.
In addition, documented education within the methodologies of the humanities or social sciences is required.
Bachelor’s degrees from AAU which qualify students for direct admission
A bachelor's degree in Language and International Studies, English, from Aalborg University qualifies students for direct admission to the Master's degree programme if admission is in immediate continuation of the completed Bachelor's degree.
Other comparable degrees may qualify for admission, and this will be assessed on an individual basis according to the admission requirements.
If you do not meet the requirements for direct admission
If your education is not mentioned under the admission requirements, but is related, you can still apply for admission. When you apply, the Study Board will make an individual academic assessment of your qualifications in relation to the specific Master's degree programme.For further information, see the programme’s curriculum.
The Study Board does not pre-assess applications for admission. This means that academic assessments are carried out only when an application for admission is submitted.
