7 See section 7 (the Course Catalogue) for a full description of the objectives, details etc. of all of the programme s course elements. Additional and more detailed information is available in the online course catalogue at kurser.ku.dk Freedom of choice The table below shows how the course elements are divided up into elements that are compulsory and elements that are partially optional: Political Science Scientific Theory and Methodology Basic Course in Politics Compulsory course elements 10 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits Theory in Political Science and Philosophical History Theories and Approaches to Politics National Public Administration International Public Administration 10 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits 12.5 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits International Relations Comparative Politics Bachelor project Social Science Sociology Microeconomics Macroeconomics Method 1 Method 2 Elective courses: two courses prescribed to 10 ECTS credits each 20 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits 20 ECTS credits 12.5 ECTS credits 7.5 ECTS credits 7.5 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits 10 ECTS credits Partially optional course elements 20 ECTS credits The programme includes partially optional course elements prescribed to a total of 20 ECTC credits. With the exception of seminars, students can choose elective courses from the range of master s courses in the Department of Political Science, including Public Law. Partially optional course elements can also be chosen from outside the Department of Political Science, provided the Study Board approves the academic content. Read more about the procedures for this in 4.3.

8 4.2 Registration requirement of 30 ECTS credits per semester Under 4.2 of the Curricula's Common Part, the University has a duty to ensure that all students are registered for 30 ECTS credits per semester. The administration registers students for classes and exams on all of the compulsory courses, as per the programme structure described in 4 (above). If changes are made regarding the courses for which the administration registers students, the curriculum will be amended accordingly and they will be advertised on the study pages on KUnet. The students are responsible for registering for optional course elements. They register via the self-service part of KUnet during the advertised period prior to each semester. Students who are personally responsible for registration for courses under the above who fail to register for the required 30 ECTS credits by the appropriate deadline, will be registered by the University according to the following principles: - students who have not previously studied Public Law will be registered for this course - places are allocated by drawing lots and the students are spread as evenly as possible on optional courses with places available Credits Students on the bachelor programme in Political Science are entitled to transfer max. 30 ECTS credits from courses studied at another educational institution in Denmark or abroad. Exempt from this rule are students who transfer credits for course elements when transferring from another institution or study programme of credits from programmes already successfully completed. Credit transfers are conditional upon passing all of the course elements concerned. Successfully completed course elements from the bachelor programme in Political Science at Aarhus University and the University of Southern Denmark can take the place of course elements on this programme, as per the Programme Order, 34. It is a precondition for credit transfer that the course elements were studied on a programme that is comparable, including in terms of level, with the bachelor programme in Political Science at the University of Copenhagen. Read more about the general rules for credit transfers in 5.5 of the Curricula s Common Part. 5. Exams 5.1 Requirements for choice of literature On courses where students select some of the literature themselves, students sign a solemn declaration that the literature they have listed contains, as a minimum, information about: the author, title, publisher, year of publication and the exact number of pages. When referring to periodicals, students must also state the name of the periodical, year of publication and edition number. Bibliographies follow standards set by the Study Board.

9 The signed declaration also confirms that the student has complied with the requirement that literature that has already been listed once cannot be reused for an exam. For the bachelor project, it is permissible to list literature cited for previous exams. The following requirements apply to the literature for synopsis exams and exam assignments on optional subjects: The syllabus consists of pages and is set by the lecturer and approved by the Study Board for assignments on optional subjects, seminars and courses with oral exams. In courses with oral exams, max. 25% of the syllabus may consist of literature cited previously. If more than 25% of the syllabus consists of literature that has been cited previously, the student must list additional literature in order to specify a total of 900 pages of new literature. In courses with exams consisting of assignments on optional subjects, the rule is that if literature is included in the set syllabus that has been cited previously for assignments on an optional subject, the student must list additional literature so that, in total, 1200 pages of new literature are specified. The student must sign a solemn declaration of compliance with the rule about supplementary literature. For assignments on an optional subject not linked to a course, the student must draw up a list and sign a solemn declaration that it consists of literature that has not previously been cited and which corresponds to the prescribed number of pages. Compliance with the requirements for the syllabus is subject to random spot-checks. 5.2 Assessment and grading The table below shows how each course element is assessed in order that the programme complies with the requirements in the Exam Order (see the Curricula s Common Part, 4.7).

30 7.7 Microeconomics Social-science course element Contents Microeconomics introduces key economic issues and provides an introduction to basic microeconomic thinking. Traditionally, economic theory is divided up into microeconomics and macroeconomics. Virtually all analysis of economic policy has its roots in either micro- or macroeconomic theory, but analyses are often based on a combination of elements of both. Microeconomics deals with the economic behaviour of individuals, households, companies and organisations. The course introduces students to the basic concepts and the objective is that they learn to explain, apply and evaluate micro-economic analyses in economic and political debate and to conduct basic microeconomic analyses in an independent manner. The course is based on the theory of supply and demand and on the consequences of consumer and business behaviour on prices on the product and factor markets in free competitive markets and in monopolised markets. It then introduces students to welfare economics, i.e. market adjustments to the general theory of equilibrium and the effects of asymmetric information and market failures. Competency profile/description of objectives Microeconomics gives students: - basic knowledge of selected elements of microeconomic theory and descriptions of society from an economics perspective - competency to apply microeconomic concepts, models and empirical data - competency to understand and analyse aspects of positive and normative microeconomics, especially microeconomic problems in economic policy - insight into how arguments are built up on the basis of microeconomic theory and the associated empirical data - competency to interpret well-defined economic problems - the ability to conduct in-depth microeconomic analyses, especially of topical economic problems, using economics methodology. Criteria for achievement of targets Grade Designation Description 12 Excellent performance demonstrating complete fulfilment of the course objectives. The student has incorporated all of the relevant microeconomic theories in the analysis of the questions addressed. The analysis includes both text and geometry. The analysis makes consistent use of economics methodology. The relevant theories are used with precision, including a discussion of the specific prerequisites for the problem
