Title Experiences from the Master program in Sexology at Malmö university, Sweden : A pilot study
Author(s) Löfgren-Mårtenson, Lotta
Date 2009
English abstract
Introduction and objectives: In 2007 a new master program in sexology started within the faculty of Health and Society at Malmö University, Sweden. This pilot study aims to explore who the master students are, and the pedagogical implications for the substance, methods and organization of the program. Method: A pilot questionnaire study has been conducted during the spring of 2008. The sample is limited to the first class of master students at the sexology program at Malmö University. 23 out of 29 students answered and completed the questionnaire. Results: A majority of the students are women (20), ages 35-45 (10), and married or cohabit (16). Almost half of the students are social workers (11) and nurses and midwifes (8). Most of them are professionals with sexological elements as a part of their daily work (16). A majority intends to work as sexologists (16), and more than half of the master students want to begin a research career (16). Conclusion: The varying backgrounds of the master students urge the teachers to aim for scholarship of teaching, meaning both being experts on their fields and experts on teaching. The student’s diverse competences can also be used at the master program according to learning as participation in a social practice. Many of the students aspire for a research career, which means that Malmö University has to organize and prepare for studies on a higher level.
