Degree: Master of Arts and Social Science (60 credits) with a major in Adult Learning.

Teaching language: English

In every part of the world, governments are urging citizens to train or educate themselves for competition in the global economy.

Advocates of this argument claim that regional or local trade arrangements are no longer viable in a world where connective technologies can move influence, resources and purchasing power with a simple mouse click. Critical discourses on globalisation, however, require an ability to learn in situations that span vast cultural and geographic divides. And working globally sometimes calls for “fluency” in several cultures.

Four universities
This programme design is unique in the sense that four universities in four different continents collaborate. These are Linköping University, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, University of Western Cape, Cape Town and Monash University, Melbourne.

Graduates of the programme will:

Learn and teach globally
Use global connective technologies
Understand knowledge-based societies and the implications for learning
Understand globalisation discourses
Develop cultural sensibilities and sensitivities
Develop an equality perspective to learning, and reframe their own professional practices
The programme is intended for adults who need to understand learning and global change. The content will benefit people working in formal educational settings, business and industry, activist organisations, governments, non-governmental organisations, healthcare and numerous other settings where discourses of globalisation are changing people’s lives.

Distance learning
The mode of delivery is on-line distance learning with no campus-based meetings. Students must have reliable and regular e-mail and internet access.

This is a one year course but further studies are possible, resulting in a two-year master’s degree.

Specific requirements
A bachelor's degree, including a bachelor’s essay or project, with a major in education, adult learning or other subject relevant to the field of adult learning.

Each applicant must enclose a Letter of Intent written in English, explaining why they want to study this programme, and a summary of their bachelor’s essay or project. If applicants hold a degree that does not include a bachelor’s essay or project, their Letter of Intent should describe previous studies and any academic activities that are related to the master’s programme or the programmes applied for.

Application for EU graduates until 30 September 2016

For Details see below. The deadline for Applicants who graduated outside of Europe allready expired.

About the Program

This international oriented 2-year master’s degree programme is based on the following pillars:
▪ The study of a range of topics within the field of human-computer interaction: usability, user-centred design and user interface testing and research, and innovative interface technologies such as virtual reality, mobile systems, adaptive systems, mixed reality, ubiquitous computing and graphic interfaces.
▪ Acquisition of key skills and competences through a project-based study approach.

In the English-language Human-Computer Interaction M.Sc. programme, students focus on theoretical and practical issues in current computer science research in the fields of user-centered design, interactive system development and evaluation. In addition, this technically-oriented HCI master offers the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary projects and attend courses from Architecture and Urbanism, Art and Design, Media Studies and Media Management.

In general, our programme aims at people with a bachelor’s degree or minor in computer science. The medium of instruction for all mandatory courses is English. The program has received accreditation by Acquin until 30.09.2020 in April 2015.

More Information under https://www.uni-weimar.de/en/media/studies/computer-science-and-media-hci/human-computer-interaction-msc/

Program Structure

The programme comprises 120 ECTS, distributed into the following components:
▪ Four compulsory modules (Advanced HCI, Information Processing and Presentation, Virtual/Augmented Reality and Mobile HCI), each comprising 9 ECTS.
▪ Elective module (24 ECTS in total).
▪ Two research projects (15 ECTS each).
▪ The Master’s thesis module (30 ECTS).

In accordance with the Weimar Bauhaus model, research-oriented projects contribute towards a large proportion of the master’s programme. The elective modules allows students to incorporate courses from other degree programmes such as Media Studies, Media Management, Architecture and Urbanism, and Art and Design alongside the general Computer Science and Media course catalogue. Graded language courses up to 6 ECTS may also be included, or an additional HCI related project. The fourth and final semester is dedicated to the master’s thesis.

Career Perspectives

The HCI Master was developed based upon our experiences with the long-standing Computer Science & Media Master program. CS&M graduates have all readily found employment in industry and academia, in R&D departments at large companies (e.g. Volkswagen, BMW), research institutes (e.g. Fraunhofer), as well as at universities, with many continuing into a PhD.

Usability is becoming more and more important for computer systems as computers are embedded in many aspects of everyday life. The ability to design complex systems and interfaces with regard to usability and appropriateness for the usage context increases in importance. HCI graduates can work both in software development, in particular in conception and development of novel interface technologies, and in the area of usability and user research, which both grow in demand on the job market. Our unique project-based study approach provides graduates with a skill set that qualifies them both for research and industry careers.

Studying in Weimar

The Bauhaus, the most influential design school in the 20th century, was founded in 1919 in our main building. A tie to this history was established in the renaming as Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in 1996. We are an international university in the unique, cultural city of Weimar. We are a vibrant institution, not a museum. Experimentation and excellence prevail throughout the 4 faculties where transdisciplinary projects and co-operations in research and education are conducted.

Weimar is a medium-sized city with UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. It is known for its connection to literature, the arts and music and also has a music university. The affordable living costs in this area of Germany and the rich cultural program of Weimar make it a very attractive location for students.

Cyber security is a topic of growing importance, as ICT affects ever more aspects of our daily lives Businesses and government rely on ICT to an ever larger degree. Both assessing the security of existing ICT solutions and developing more secure solutions for the future pose major scientific and societal challenges.

This Master specialisation covers a broad range of topics that is important for computer security. This includes topics in computer science (software, computer networks, and hardware, esp. smart-cards and RFID), but also mathematical aspects (cryptography and security protocols), as well as organisational and management issues, legal aspects, and societal issues (in particular privacy).

Master's specialisation in Cyber Security

The Digital Security group at Radboud University is the largest research group in computer security in the Netherlands, with a strong international reputation. Several times, research by the group made the news headlines. For example, in 2008 students revealed security flaws in the chipcard used for public transport in the Netherlands (the ov-chipkaart) and as the London Oyster card. In 2013, two researchers of the Digital Security group found security vulnerabilities in car immobiliser systems used by various car manufacturers.
This master specialisation is offered in a collaboration with the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the University of Twente (UT), through a virtual institute called the Kerckhoffs Institute (http://www.kerckhoffs-institute.org/). Mandatory courses offered at the TU/e and UT can be followed by video connections, but following optional courses at these institutes may require traveling to Eindhoven or Enschede. Such courses are always scheduled back-to-back at one location to minimise travel time. While this does incur a cost in time and travel expenses, it does offer a unique opportunity to choose courses from the broad range of specialties at the three universities.
Cyber Security is a specialisation in the Master's programme in Computing Science and available for students with a Bachelor's degree in Computing Science or Mathematics.
