This is a digital programme with a minimum of one physical meeting per semester.
The digital infrastructure is primarily the learning platform Canvas, the digital examination system Inspera and the open blog service WordPress.
Canvas will provide access to all plans and schedules for the programme as well as literature, allocated on the various courses and course modules. In each module, there will be available learning resources such as video-based lectures, power-points, group work, quizzes etc.
The greater part of the syllabus is in English. This is standard in relevant and comparable educational programmes. There is very little literature and few relevant texts in Norwegian as the programme is oriented towards an international research field. When choosing topics for the students’ individual master’s theses, those who are interested are encouraged to go for international thematics and questions that imply contacting and using sources abroad. Students who are interested will also be assisted when searching for relevant theoretical and methodological topics at foreign educational institutions and are encouraged to use the university’s mobility programmes.
Student exchange has been prepared for in the third and/or fourth semester. Students who go abroad will be granted dispensation from compulsorty attendance requirements in the 3rd semester. The university has a number of collaboration agreements with universities and university colleges abroad. Further information can be found on our website: https://www.uia.no/en/student/go-on-exchange
You may also contact the faculty’s coordinator for student exchange, Tone Frøysnes (firstname.lastname@example.org) or programme coordinator Einar Duenger Bøhn (email@example.com) for further information.
The Master’s Degree in Technology, Humans and Society qualifies for work in a variety of fields where an interdisciplinary and critical analytical approach to technology is of importance. This will apply for jobs within training, education, teaching, advisory services and management of enterprises that develop or apply technology. Relevant contexts can be private companies, consultancies, or public administration at various levels within municipality, county or state.
The master’s programme qualifies for further research education (PhD programme, Humanities and Education at UiA).
