The Programme

Image

The program includes fundamental scientific education, but takes students well beyond the boundaries of traditional disciplines, such as Forestry and Biology. Connections between land-use, natural, technical, planning and economic sciences are emphasised, and elements such as landscape planning and geographical systems are included in the program. This combination is not offered at other universities in Iceland.
