TEMA - Department of Thematic Studies



TEMA - a unique academic environment for thematically structured, interdisciplinary and practical societal research that takes place between and beyond the boundaries of disciplines. We combine strong research with education assignments, in which we also engage organisations and bodies from outside the academy. We educate our students and new researchers in critical, creative and innovative thinking for the benefit of science as well as the development of society.
