Dimittender fra Det Samfundsvidenskabelige Fakultet bliver efter deres uddannelse ofte ansat på arbejdspladser, hvor de skal løse problemstillinger i samarbejde med kolleger med en anden akademisk baggrund. I lyset af dette, er formålet med dette kursus at give studerende erfaringer med tværfagligt arbejde og med at anvende deres akademiske færdigheder på praktiske problemer fra erhvervslivet og den offentlige sektor.
