Conduct of the course

Examinarium-tentit korvataan esseillä. Ilmoittaudu Examinarium-tenttiin normaalisti, tentaattori ilmoittaa sinulle esseen aiheen.


The course can be completed as part of either the bachelor’s or master’s programme, or the 25/35 cr module. Restrictions on participation will be announced in the annual teaching programme.

After completing the course, students will be familiar with classical questions in environmental history, for example, the interaction between climate, the economy, politics and culture. They will be familiar with the long-term developments in Finnish society and understand the interconnections between business, environment and nature. Special emphasis will be on climate change as a historical phenomenon and a challenge for the future.

The course examines the central themes of global environmental history, the development of Finnish society, the connection between agrarian and urban lifestyles, and nature and the economy, as well as the general international and national factors underlying the development of lines of business.

The Faculty's Examinarium exams are replaced from 16 March with alternative arrangements until 31 May 2020 until further notice. Register for Examinarium in WebOodi and contact the teacher / check the course page for further instructions. (NOTE: do not register in Examinarium or reserve the room for the exam.)
