First Cycle/Undergraduate Courses

The Faculty of Social Sciences offers exchange students single subject courses from various disciplines within the field of Social Sciences.

You can find the list of courses offered below, divided per term. Note that the courses have different pre-requisites, which are stated in the course syllabus. Faculty of Social Sciences exchange students can choose freely from the courses offered below, provided that you meet the pre-requisites.

Courses offered for the following academic year are usually published here in late March/early April. The course offer can be subject to change.

Course details - syllabus/literature list

Use the course name or code to search the course syllabus database for a syllabus or literature list. Each syllabus includes course objectives, learning outcomes, pre-requisites, and more. Note that these documents may be updated closer to the start of the class. In the course lists below you will reach each course syllabus directly by clicking on the course code.

How the term is structured: one course per quarter/module

One Swedish credit = 1 ECTS. The normal workload for one semester is 30 credits/ECTS. The semester is sub-divided into four quarters. A 7.5 credit class taken in one quarter is a 100% pace class; so is a 15 credit class over two quarters. A 7.5 credit class that is spread over two quarters is a 50% pace class. Almost all the courses offered at the Faculty of Social Sciences are 100% pace (exceptions noted next to the course listing below). You will normally take one 7.5 credit class each quarter (or, for example, one course of 15 credits 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.

Examination

Regular examination takes place during each course period. It is not a separate overall examination period at the end of the semester or year. 

Education cycles

Note! Undergraduate students should select courses from the First Cycle Courses. Courses in the "Second Cycle Courses" section require a bachelor's degree or equivalent, and possibly other pre-requisites.

Other admission and credit information

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 the Faculty of Social Sciences or one of its departments as part of a current exchange programme. A 30 credit guarantee only applies to courses in the first cycle, and for students arriving on first-cycle level agreements with the Faculty of Social Sciences or one of its departments.
