* Please note that in semester 1b another minor The Local Impacts of Globalization is taught. This minor also contains the course Geographies of the United States which is taught in 1a and 1b. This means that if you choose to take both minors, you will only receive 25 ECTS, which means this is not a complete minor.

We offer the following options:

1) Do assignment on urbanisation and/or geography of China in either semester 1A or 1B (depending on when you will take the Geographies of the United States-course)

2) Take a Statistics 1 course of 5 ECTS at our faculty in semester 1B

Please contact study advice ( to discuss the options.
