The objective of the programme is to provide students with scientific and practical skills in frontier research and understanding relevant to biophysical interactions in the ocean, environmental protection and management. The programme aims at investigating the basic functioning of High North marine habitats and their sensitivity to climate and anthropogenic effects by using novel platforms in ocean science and molecular genomics.
The MSc comprises e.g. lectures, group work, tutorials, laboratory practise, and self-tuition. The master's courses (3xx-level) are taught in 4-5 blocks per semester, i.e. four-day seminars with appr. 15 hours per block.
The programme includes three compulsory courses: Scientific Communication and Research Methodsy, Biophysical Interactions and Evolutionary Genetics. In addition students will choose 30 credits elective courses. The Master's thesis comprises a supervised independent scientific work of 60 credits.
