Bergen School of Global Studies offers cutting edge, research-based graduate studies addressing global challenges of our time and the complex ways in which these interact.
Finding solutions to these acute and complex challenges require us to go beyond traditional scientific disciplines to gain knowledge that incorporates multiple perspectives and 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.
On these pages 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.
