Bergen School of Global Studies is a network for graduate students seeking cross-disciplinary knowledge to tackle global challenges.
Here you find an overview of courses and subjects of relevance to students interested in the causes of global challenges and in mitigating their effects—all taught in English.
Finding solutions to these acute and complex challenges require us to go beyond traditional scientific disciplines to gain knowledge that incorporates multiple perspectives and new ways of knowing.
BSGS responds to this need for multi-disciplinary, research-based and practice-embedded teaching at the MA and PhD levels, and emphasises innovative learning methods and student involvement in teaching.
BSGS is organised in five pillars led by some of Bergen's excellent research milieux: climate, governance, global health, inequality and migration.
The five pillars of BSGS are led by excellent resarchers in the respective field:
Health, Astrid Blystad & Karen Marie Moland (Centre for International Health)
Migration, Synnøve Bendixsen (International Migration and Ethnic Relations — IMER Bergen)
Inequality, Bjørn Enge Bertelsen (Global Research Programme on Inequality — GRIP)
Climate, Håvard Haarstad (Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation)
Governance, Siri Gloppen & Lise Rakner (LawTransform)
Co-directors of BSGS are Siri Gloppen and Lise Rakner. BSGS is part of the University's strategic area of Global Challenges.
Together with Bergen Global, we organise a cross-pillar film club & seminar series, providing food for both the body and the soul—a social space to engage with fellow students and researchers. Get updates on Facebook and Twitter
