First Cycle courses 2014/2015

The courses in "Social Science Studies for International Students" is made up of single subject courses from different disciplines within the field of Social Sciences.

The package was developed in 2004 and the unifying theme of the package was the so called "Swedish model in change". The concept carries different meaning within different disciplines.

A smart solution for exchange students.

It has often historically been referred to what has been considered a "unique" Swedish way: the early development of an advanced welfare state, a "middle road" between capitalism and communism. The courses within the combination package are emphasising this perspective and discussing to what extent there still is a Swedish model and, in that case, what challenges this model is meeting in an internationalized world.

From autumn 2009 two new combination packages have been identified:

Courses marked with * below are part of the package "Democracy and Welfare"
Courses marked with ¤ below are part of the package "Global Studies"

In addition to the packages, many courses from different disciplines are available to choose. Students can choose freely from all courses offered.

Examination

Most courses are full time (note the exceptions below) and examination will always take place in the end of each quarter. There is no separate examination period in the end of each semester. More information about course registration can be found on the webpage of each course.

One course per quarter/module

Normal workload for one semester is 30 credits, divided on four courses (quarter) of 7.5 credits (or one course of 15 credits (module) and two courses of 7.5 credits). It is NOT advisable to study more than one course during the same quarter/module, since lectures might collide and the workload would be too heavy.

Education cycles

Note! that Undergraduate students should look for courses labelled "First Cycle Courses". Courses labelled "Second Cycle Courses" require a bachelor's degree or equivalent.

Admission

Important note: No applications will be considered until we have received an official nomination from your home university that you have been selected and accepted to come to Faculty of Social Sciences or on of its departments on a current exchange programme. The 30 credit guarantee only applies to courses in the first cycle, and for students arriving on agreements with the Faculty of Social Sciences or one of its departments.
