The courses listed as potential electives are only acceptable if it can be demonstrated that the course relates to your thesis. Please contact Jonathan via email ( if one of them interests you.

Other English-language UiT courses at the master’s level (identifiable by their 3XXX number) might also be possible. Please feel free to browse the complete course listing ( and consult with Jonathan if you find something interesting.

Elective requirements:

  • Students who began the program prior to 2019 require 20 ECTS of “Group B” electives.
  • Students who began in Fall 2019 or later require only 5 ECTS.


These courses may be located at various UiT campuses. Note that this semester, many courses normally offered on on-campus are being offered online as well.
