– About the study programme

The Master’s degree programme is a 2-year offer of further education for those who wish to continue their studies in information science on completion of their Bachelor's degree. During these two years you will specialize within a particular field and conclude your degree with a Master’s thesis. Your choice of field and topic for your thesis will be related to the Department’s research within each field of study.

Courses of specialization:
