About

The Arctic Studies programme of Aalborg University provides an opportunity for students to focus on the Arctic as a particular field of specialization within their chosen master’s degree programme.

Overview

What is the Arctic?

In the present years Arctic scholars have to rethink how we approach and understand the Arctic, not only because the ice is melting, but also because the political and societal scenes are changing rapidly. The specialization in Arctic Studies provides an advanced understanding of the Arctic region and its relationship with the rest of world, seen in historical, social, political and cultural dimensions.

Arctic Studies contribute with new problem-based research and teaching that engages the real-life problems which Arctic communities are facing today. The Arctic Studies programme of Aalborg University gives particular attention to studies in the human sciences within the areas of social, cultural and political analysis, inter-cultural communication, nation-building, post-colonialism, geo-politics, international relations, globalization, governance and sustainable development (including tourism and the management of the natural and cultural heritage).

Students acquire strong analytical skills, the ability to conduct independent research, and an opportunity to gain practical experience in relevant professional fields (internships facilitated in a broad range of institutions across and beyond the Arctic).
