The department board consists of representatives of students, doctoral students, teachers, researchers and administrative staff. The department board may delegate matters to the head of department or special committee / body if it is not of such a nature that the decision should be made by the department board in its entirety.

The head of department receives decision-making power per delegation from the Dean (chairman of the Faculty Board) and in some cases from IS. The head of department has employer responsibility and responsibility for the department's finances as well as premises and security. To his/hers aid, the head of department has an assistant head of department with responsibility for student affairs and a deputy head of department who takes over in the absence of the head of department.
