What can this minor do for your career?
This programme can provide excellent preparation for a career in research (natural or social) or policy/governance. Working independently and in groups, students will learn to think critically, develop original research topics, and write well-formulated analyses. Because the programme focuses attention on the Polar Regions, students will gain valuable multidisciplinary insights into recent and premodern climate change, a topic of great relevance to a variety of research fields—from the hard sciences to history and political science—across the globe.
Additionally, a nuanced and wide-ranging understanding of the Polar Regions can be a crucial asset to many public- and private-sector employers with operations in the Arctic, such as Heerema, Gasterra, Royal HaskoningDHV, the WWF, and Greenpeace.
Course instructors at the Arctic Centre are actively engaged in original research, as well as serving as official Dutch representatives to the influential working groups of the Arctic Council.
Former students of the Arctic Centre are currently carrying out original scientific research in universities and museums, as well as policy work in international polar organisations.
