Welcome to Graduate School at the Faculty of Social Sciences!

Graduate School at the Faculty of Social Sciences offers interdisciplinary programmes and courses at Master’s level. We coordinate three interdisciplinary programmes in Global Studies, Development Studies and Social Studies of Gender, and offer courses in theory of science, research methodology and in interdisciplinary themes.

students greeting

Graduate School was founded in 2007 in response to the Faculty of Social Sciences' need to offer interdisciplinary programmes in areas not covered by specific departments. There are currently about 150 programme students roughly distributed in groups of 20 to 40 students per programme. In addition, Graduate School has approximately 300 students taking our classes in theory of science and scientific methodology. We have students from every continent, all with a background in the social sciences. Our international teaching staff come from different departments at the Faculty of Social Sciences, as well as from outside the Faculty.

The Graduate School office is located on the 2nd floor in Gamla Kirurgen, Sandgatan 3.

We invite you to explore our programmes and courses and see what other students have to say about studying here!

You can also find us on Facebook and LinkedIn, or contact us with general questions regarding content and possibilities. Please find our general contact information in the menu to the right!
