The MSc in Social Data Science is unique in that it is a truly interdisciplinary programme involving five departments at the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Copenhagen as well as researchers from the Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS). The courses have all been developed in close collaboration between at least two teachers from different departments as well as in collaboration with data scientists from SODAS, which ensures a cross-disciplinary take on all subjects forming part of the programme.
Furthermore, the programme also emphasises cross-disciplinary collaboration between the students. From the onset of the first semester, students will work in small study groups, where they will get the chance to work closely with students from other academic backgrounds than their own. This way, the students are constantly encouraged to share their experiences, views and knowledge.

CPR stands for Det Centrale Personregister, which translates to the Civil Registration System.
A CPR number is a personal identification number which, among other things, facilitates accurate linkage between all Danish national registers.
Your CPR number consists of ten digits. The first six digits are your date of birth, and the last four are your unique identification number. The last digit of your CPR number indicates your sex. If it is an odd digit you are male, and if it is an even digit you are female.
Residents of Denmark are legally required to have a CPR number. You will also notice that your CPR number grants your access to a number of services in Denmark. You will need it in order to open a bank account, get a Danish phone number, borrow books at the library, take out insurance, etc.
