This was a realization of a long-standing need for university level education in duodji in the Swedish side of Sapmi. At the Sami University College there is already a Bachelor of Arts programme where during the third year a course called Duodji 2 is offered. A parallel course in Jokkmokk was organized in collaboration with the course at Sami University College in Guovdageaidnu (Kautokeino).
