The target group is students who have to work in an Arctic country or areas with arctic conditions - or just have a general interest in the area. This course is aimed at students with no prior knowledge of the Arctic region, at an introductory level that should be useful for students from Biology, as well as Geography-Geoscience, Geology-GeoScience, Biology-Biotechnology, Natural Resources, Anthropology, Archaeology and Political Science.

The topics of the course are based on the scientific research carried out at Geocenter Copenhagen and will focus on the changing climate and its effect on sensitive areas such as the Arctic. This course will help you understand what is happening in the Arctic both in the past, present and in the future. The course covers a wide range of topics within geosciences such as climatology, glaciology, geomorphology, ecology and biogeochemical cycles to provide a better understanding of the changes occurring in the Arctic and potential feedbacks to the global climate.
