Faglig innhold

This course is composed of group work, and guest lectures and seminars by researchers from academia as well as by representatives from institutions working with natural resource management outside academia. The course runs during the entire master programme. The main goal of this course is to give the students with background within the fields of ecology and geography an interdisciplinary overview and acquaintance of current topics within sustainable management of natural resources. Each student will give two presentations of their master projects, the first one early in the study to discuss the scientific plan, the other one late in the study to discuss the results and interpretations of the student's project. The course also includes group work where the students prepare their presentations and seminars where specific topics will be presented. Group work and seminars require active contributions from the participants. During the course the students will also get aquanted with representatives from work life outside academia. Training is offered in identification of own competences within their disciplin related to work life and how to find their first position after graduation
