The first semester aims to advance the theoretical knowledge. The emphasis will be on introducing newer and more complex theories. There will also be an introduction to relevant philosophical, ethical and environmental themes.
The compulsory units are all taught in english or both norwegian and english. A selection of the optional courses (minors and majors) will also be offered in english.
In the second semester students choose between various minors (advanced elective courses). This gives an opportunity to study subjects of special interest to individual students.
In the third semester the students concentrate on their chosen specialisation. They also lay the foundation for the masters thesis in the compulsory course focusing on scientific theory and the method as chosen by the individual students to be used in their thesis.
Only students that have successfully passed the courses in the first year of the program may continue to the second year, the minimum requirement is that 2 of the compulsory and 2 of the elective courses are passed.
