A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.
The incorporation of technology into modern society has often been the cause of political and philosophical debate. The main concern is whether technology truly helps or harms humanity. Some argue that overuse of technology is harmful to the environment, while others believe it is a necessary facet of human development.
Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.
