Master's Degree Programme in Northern Tourism 2020-2021

Tourism, an industry that is growing in the northern and Arctic regions, is affected by globalization
and environmental transformation, but also plays a role in changing the North. For example, tourism
can be a component of community development, drawing out creative solutions to social, economic
and environmental challenges. It can be an important arena for involvement for both women and
men, which is valuable during a time when many Arctic and Northern areas are facing increased
activities in male dominated industries such as oil and gas. On the other hand, tourism can bring
unwanted and unintended pressures that have negative outcomes for community structures and the
environment. The Master’s Degree Programme in Northern Tourism – based on a joint 30 credits
component organised by the Univeristy of Arctic’s Thematic Network on Northern Tourism – offers a
comprehensive and international approach to tourism and reflects on the growing global influence
and relevance of change in the north. It brings together researchers and students from the northern
univeristies, with an interest to develop responsible tourism futures.
