Main content

Understanding and addressing the global challenges caused by increased human activity, climate change, and social inequalities require urgent cooperation between the social and the natural sciences.

We also need a different kind of education than we are traditionally used to, as familiarity with and, to some degree, expertise in more than one discipline is today necessary to grasp the complexities of the challenges we face.

Here at the University of Bergen we nurture strong disciplines to pursue new scientific discoveries, and actively support multidisciplinary cooperation in both research and education.

If you can document proficiency in Norwegian, you can also apply for master's degree programmes taught in Norwegian. Some of the cources in these programmes are taught in English. More information on our Norwegian pages.
