Bachelor of Circumpolar Studies

Do you want to learn more about the environment and sustainability in the High North? Are you interested in indigenous issues, social conditions and politics in the Arctic regions? Do you want an international bachelor’s degree with a solid interdisciplinary foundation and the possibility for exchange to an international university?


The bachelor degree in Circumpolar Studies arose from cooperation between University of Nordland and the University of the Arctic. The programme is comprised of a core component worth 90 ECTS as well as electives. The core component is taught entirely online and the programme offers otherwise flexible progression for mobile students. Elective courses can be taken at University of Nordland, at another home institution or with one of our exchange partners. The specialisation in Northwest Russian Relations includes one semester in Arkhangelsk.
