BA; Department of International Environment and Development Studies, Norwegian University of Life Sciences (Noragric) The Bachelor programme in Development Studies is an interdisciplinary programme where different theoretical approaches together give insight in different and often overlapping disciplines, both within social and natural science. The programme provides basic knowledge within several disciplines like social anthropology, ecology, resource management and economy, and how to use this knowledge to find solutions to specific interdisciplinary problems.
This study programme seeks to develop basic knowledge within different disciplines (ecology, water- and soil science, land planning, economy, social anthropology and other social sciences) and apply this knowledge in an interdisciplinary way when addressing actual problems.
Courses are offered within areas such as:
• Resources and conflicts
• Biodiversity, climate and conventions
• Poverty, aid and economy
You will also get a chance to study at another institution. An exchange semester will be arranged at a university in a developing country where applied courses in rural and urban development will be offered.
Exchange programmes are also available at universitites in Canada, England and the Netherlands. The exchange is not covered financially by UMB, but it is supported by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund.
