About the programme
The programme is unique as it combines ecological theory and scientific methods with matters of administrative law.
The programme focuses on the sustainable use of resources through the proper implementation of various measures. We examine the effects of human intervention in nature and the measures we can take to reduce any negative influence. We put an emphasis on ecological and scientific methods through the use of new technology and statistical methods.
At Evenstad you will meet an international environment where both employees and fellow students share your enthusiasm for a common academic field.
The proximity to nature, and a lively campus in which all activities revolve around forest and natural resource management, give you a unique opportunity to combine theory and practice, education and leisure.
