Minister Sofie Carsten Nielsen: Preserve the Humanities at Copenhagen University!

Recent news

A compromise has been reached.

Thanks everyone for the strong support. The wide international support and many letters of support were impressing! A kind of compromise was reached where the same numbers of BA / MA places will be cut, but later (gradually until 2018/2020) and the cuts are going to be made autonomously by the university (i.e. not through directives from the minister). The latest news we received internally was that the university promised to keep the small subjects alive. This is certainly good for the Institute for Cross-cultural Studies (ToRS) and for the humanities in Copenhagen University, although the cuts will be felt when they come. Once again, thank you for your support! It certainly helped to make a difference.
