New graduate: Congratulations – we did it!
No less than five degree programmes were represented when the Department of Public Health held its annual Graduation Celebration in the Main Hall on 25 June – for the first time also with the Master's degree programme in Public Health Science, among others. And with many happy graduates.
The diplomas from the Department of Public Health lay on the table, while the sound of Kaare Norge’s guitar filled the Main Hall.
Vice-dean, Professor Charlotte Ringsted talked about high expectations, particularly when it comes to the creativity of the new graduates. As she said: You’re needed and you’re the one’s who can support the welfare society of the future.
Degree Programme Director, Associate Professor Kirsten Frederiksen held the celebration speech for the many graduates who will now enter the public and private labour market. The speech ended with a hope that they "would continue to have the ability to work in-depth in an accelerating society", as she put it.
The Danish guitarist Kaare Norge provided the entertainment with songs ranging form Carl Nielsen variations to Eric Clapton’s ‘Tears in Heaven’.
MSc in Nursing Sabine Heesemann gave a speech as representative for the entire exam class. She got a big round of applause for her speech about "having a relationship with your Master's thesis" – and for her final words: Dear graduates: Congratulations – we did it!
