The faculty offers study programmes at bachelor and master level within the fields of agricultural economics, aquaculture management, biology, international marketing, animal sciences, veterinary nursing, nature conservation and nature management.
FBA meets the needs for employment and value creation in the knowledge-based bio-economy. This is defined by the European Union as sustainable production and transformation of biomass to food, fiber products, industrial products and energy.
The faculty bases this work on talented people, up-to-date infrastructure and advanced methodologies – all supported by high academic quality standards and scientific integrity.
Scientific production and quality is assessed according to NIFU-STEP. Our ambition is to rank among the top educational establishments for marine biological sciences in Norway.
The faculty is one of the leading academic environments within marine biosciences and aquaculture in Norway. It has modern facilities for students and researchers in the main university buildings, including advanced equipment for the study of genomics, one of today’s cutting-edge fields of research. These facilities are augmented by a large, well-equipped research station on the water’s edge, just a 15 minute walk from the main campus.
