Degrees and fictive scripts in science

11 Oct 2018

The paper aims to firstly examine what forces are at play in pushing for and against degree programmes. This should include the professional environments and the nature of the knowledge taught in the fields. In addition, we will look at why certain actors have so strongly advocated degrees and where they have drawn their support from. The ?fictive? part will examine the current actors and forces at play in the field of Environmental Management and what effects the introduction of degrees may have on these actors. It may possibly examine what changes are happening or how such changes may interact with the introduction of degree-holding workers and the degree programme itself in the university.
