Aalborg University offers a new specialization under the CCG with a focus on Arctic communities and globalization.
Arctic Studies provide an opportunity for students to focus on the Arctic as a particular field of specialization within their chosen master’s degree programme.
WHAT IS THE ARCTIC?
In the present years Arctic scholars have to rethink how we approach and understand the Arctic, not only because the ice is melting, but also because the political and societal scenes are changing rapidly. The specialization in Arctic Studies provides an advanced understanding of the Arctic region and its relationship with the rest of world, seen in historical, social, political and cultural dimensions. Arctic Studies contribute with new problem-based research and teaching that engages the real-life problems which Arctic communities are facing today. This specialization gives particular attention to studies in the human sciences within the areas of social, cultural and political analysis, inter-cultural communication, nation-building, post-colonialism, geo-politics, international relations, globalization, governance and sustainable development (including tourism and the management of the natural and cultural heritage).
Students acquire strong analytical skills, the ability to conduct independent research, and an opportunity to gain practical experience in relevant professional fields (internships facilitated in a broad range of institutions across and beyond the Arctic).
WHERE IS THE ARCTIC?
The geographical area in focus is the Circumpolar North,including Greenland, the Nordic Region, Canada, Alaska and Russia, the North Atlantic and the Polar Sea. However, special attention is paid to global connections, well-established and emerging, in Europe, Asia, Russia, and North America. The Arctic is indeed a global region, and it is important to be attentive to these transregional connections.
