Arctic Nature and Society is a new 7.5 ECTS course at the University of Copenhagen, taking place in Spring 2019. Taking a unique interdisciplinary perspective, the course studies the many issues facing the High North, and is open to all!

 

What’s it all about?

Each week of the course we visit a new topic and a new venue in Copenhagen, gaining perspectives from experts within academia, government, industry, the arts, and the military. You’ll learn about everything from climate change, archaeology and microbiology to sustainable development, and the politics of independence, security and international relations in this unique and rapidly changing part of the world.
