Education – Centre for Sami Studies

The Center for Sami Studies offers educational programmes that meet the need for knowledge about Sami and Indigenous issues. In our teaching, we address both local and global concerns within the field of Indigenous studies. Our two English-language master’s programmes are cross-disciplinary and include courses from the humanities and social sciences. The Master in Indigenous studies (MIS) is delivered as a full-time on-campus programme in Tromsø. Governance and Entrepreneurship in Northern and Indigenous Areas (GENI) is a joint program with the University of Saskatchewan in Canada and can be completed either full-time or part-time. All GENI classes are delivered online.

Our programmes produce skilled employees, and our graduates find work in many different sectors (media and education, industry, government, NGOs) and take on different roles (researchers, instructors, and leaders).
With a degree from the Center for Sami Studies, you join an international network that you can benefit from in your further career and practice.
