The program is especially built on the principle and practice of sociology, macro-economics and geography/planning. By the end of the program students understand the changes and challenges of coastal communities' development, and have versed themselves in methods and skills to predict their development and manage it. The language of teaching and general communication is English. The program is offered by the University Centre of the Westfjords in Ísafjörður Iceland in co-operation with the University of Akureyri. Teaching takes place in Ísafjörður and in English.
For-grade-students need a Bachelor’s degree (or comparable), but applicants for single courses may be from the third year of Bachelors programmes, if well prepared.
