Faculties and departments
The University of Tromsø consists of six faculties:
- Health Sciences
- Fine Arts
- Biosciences, Fisheries and Economics
- Humanities, Social Sciences and Education
- Science and Technology
The faculties administrate the programmes of study. Each faculty is governed by a Faculty Board headed by a Dean elected among the academic staff of the faculty.
The Faculty Director is the faculty board’s secretary and, as a representative of the University Director, head of the faculty administration. (At the Norwegian College of Fishery Science, the Head of the Board holds the title of College Rector).
The basic organisational units under the faculties are the departments. Each department is governed by a Departmental Board. The Head of Department is elected among the department’s academic staff.
Other organisational units at UiT are placed under the direct control of the University Board.
