‘The most important thing I learned at the Faculty of Humanities is interdisciplinary thinking and the ability to look at an issue from more than one perspective,’ Sara Rydland Nærum says. She has a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary gender studies and works as political adviser in the ‘Sex and Society’ Foundation.

My education has provided me with academic insight and confidence in a very complex field, says Ingvil Thallaug Øverli. She has a bachelor’s degree in multidisciplinary gender studies and works as an investigator at the Norwegian Directorate of Health.

I am fortunate to work with issues related to equality and the labour market, which were a key part of my degree studies, says Linn Andersen. She is youth secretary at the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) and an academic assistant at the University of Bergen.
