Arctic Studies Minor

Nadine w/ inukshuk

The Arctic Studies Minor, coordinated by the Jackson School for International Studies and the School of Oceanography, provides undergraduates with opportunity to gain skills relevant to addressing major science and policy issues in the Arctic. The minor will train students to work with international organizations, national governments, and sub-national organizations and/or to pursue graduate study at the intersection between science and policy in the polar regions.

To complete the Arctic Studies Minor, students are required to take a series of core courses and electives that ensure basic competence in key domains of Arctic research, from the dynamics of climate to terrestrial and oceanographic processes, ecological dynamics, and historical and political issues surrounding indigenous and other Arctic communities.
