    Peter Hellevang

    Bachelor's student

    "As I grew older, my interest in society only grew. My problem was that I was not able to find a bachelor which would include all the different aspects of society I was interested in. Luckily, after some searching, I found the Public Governance bachelor, that looks at global societal challenges from multiple disciplines."
