This paper is the report of the evaluation of Bachelor of Circumpolar Studies 331 and 332 (BCS 331 and 332) organized by the University of the Arctic. UArctic is a partnership of academic institutions, Indigenous peoples' organizations, the Arctic states, and other stakeholders.The Bachelor of Circumpolar Studies (BCS) program was first proposed in 1998. It provides students with the opportunity to learn about the lands, peoples, and issues of the Circumpolar World and prepares them for advanced study or professional employment in fields such as community health, sustainable resource management, self-government, and tourism. Central to the BCS is the educational needs and aspirations of northern peoples and, by extension, the goals and values of the University. It promotes interdisciplinary study and relevant professional preparation. It embraces both Western and traditional knowledge systems. It fosters connections among northern neighbors and it encourages the sharing of knowledge and expertise.The Nordic Council og Ministers has been one of the main partners to the University of the Arctic in this project.
