Department of Culture and Global Studies

The Department of Culture and Global Studies (CGS) will cease to exist by 31 July 2019. Staff employed at the Faculty of Humanities will become members of the new department of Culture and Learning. Staff employed at the Faculty of the Social Sciences will become members of the new department of Political Sciences.

The closing down of CGS is due to the decision that there will no longer be cross-faculty departments at the University. We would like to extend our thanks to the foundations which have funded our research and to all our other external partners in Denmark and abroad.

The research and study programmes in the Department will continue to exist but under new auspices.

Deputy Head of Department Stine Thidemann Faber, the Department of Political Sciences (stf@cgs.aau.dk)

Education

The distinctive feature of the School of Culture and Global Studies is that its programmes are directed ‘towards the world’ – including Danish, Nordic, European and global perspectives. The programmes of the School focus on the interplay between global elements and national/regional relations – e.g. history and politics, cultural text studies, professional communication, media and language studies.
