Introduction

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

Several of the courses offered deal with the "Swedish model in change". This concept carries different meanings in different disciplines.

A smart solution for exchange students.

The idea of a "unique" Swedish way has been referenced historically as the early development of an advanced welfare state, a "middle road" between capitalism and communism. Some of the courses explore this perspective and discuss to what extent there still is a Swedish model and, in that case, what challenges this model faces in an internationalized world.

Courses may fall under broad themes of "Democracy and Welfare" (marked below with *) and "Global Studies" (marked below with ¤).

Faculty of Social Sciences exchange students can choose freely from the courses offered below.

Course details - syllabus/literature list

Use the course 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.

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.
