JANUAR 2021 | TEMA: MADE IN CHINA
The Faculty of Arts at Aarhus University is one of the largest environments for research and education in Northern Europe. We investigate human cultural and social forms of expression and practice.
In our programmes, we strive to strike the right balance between solid academic core competences and interdisciplinary competences. We offer Master´s degree programmes in:
One of the most influential world rankings is THE - Times Higher Education World University Rankings, where Arts has advanced 17 places this year.
At the Faculty of Arts we have a brilliant study environment. According to a comprehensive survey conducted on the study environment at Aarhus University, eighty-six per cent of all students at Arts feel very satisfied with the academic and social climate of their degree programmes.
I moved from a city in Southeast China where the weather is the same rainy as the one we get here in Aarhus in 2019, starting my Master's degree in Linguistics at Aarhus University. Even though one year has passed since I came here, people are still asking "As a person coming from the other side of the continent, do you feel any cultural differences?". I cannot answer simply as "Since I grew up in a family with international backgrounds, and I studied western philosophy and intercultural communication a lot in my Bachelor, I have integrated into the social environment here smoothly". The most important element which has mainly helped me is the balanced student proportion with almost half and half internationals and Danes, and the peer learning style. In this process, I became friends with my Danish classmates because of our shared study interests, and they thus opened the gate to the Danish society and language for me.
The most precious treasure I wouldn't have got if I hadn't decided to study here is the computational, psycholinguistic, and experimental tracks of linguistic studies and research. It's still almost impossible to get educated in those tacks in both BA and MA levels as a linguist in China. These knowledge backgrounds totally opened another career possibility for me: to work as an NLP engineer who holds a linguistics degree, moving towards industrial consultancy later probably. I literally rank this as one of the best things I have got in Aarhus city together with the "hyggelig" (cozy) atmosphere.
