About the Programme

The Master of Science in Natural Resources Management programme is a two-year international interdisciplinary programme, consisting of the specializations Biology and Geography. It is especially designed to give the students an understanding of the importance of management for sustainable use of natural resources, an understanding of the connections and the ability to communicate between different disciplines and actors.

Natural resources provide mankind with important ecosystem services such as clean water, energy, minerals and biological resources in terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems which are essential for the survival and development of mankind. However, the increasing demands for these natural resources  due to the growth of the human population combined with the decrease of the finite resources urgently calls for a sustainable management of these resources. Such management requires an interdisciplinary approach encompassing in-depth knowledge about specific resources as well as a holistic perspective, including ecological, economic and social aspects. It also requires a strong ability to communicate in order to establish dialogues between the different disciplines involved as well as between the stakeholders, and a good understanding of the connections between these different actors.

MSc programme in Natural Resources Management aims at giving a unique education and required knowledge that will contribute to find sustainable solutions of interdisciplinary challenges related to the management of natural resources.

About the study programme:
We offer a two-year international research based MSc programme integrating both Norwegian/Nordic and international students. The Master in Natural Resources Management is an interdisciplinary cooperative programme involving two NTNU faculties ,administrated by the Faculty of Natural Sciences (NT).

The programme offers 2 specializations:

  • Biology
  • Geography

The study programme comprises a total of 120 ECTS credits. The normal workload for a full-time student during one academic year is 60 ECTS credits. The study is structured around 4 core courses, elective courses and a master's thesis (60 ECTS credits). The Master's thesis work will be integrated in ongoing research projects and to national/international issues suited for the individual student according to their specializations. Each student will be assigned an academic supervisor from a relevant research group.
