Natural Sciences, Technology and Environmental Studies

We offer eight degree programmes, of which three are at advanced level, as well as a large number of freestanding courses.

Media Technology at Södertörn University is an interdisciplinary subject that includes technology, social science and the humanities. It covers areas such as advertising, web design, photography, film and design. The subject has both practical and theoretical aspects; including skill-focused activities such as text and image processing, editing and the production of moving pictures, but also more theoretical reasoning on the social role of information technology .

Environmental Science bridges the natural sciences, humanities and social sciences and is a fascinating interdisciplinary field for education and research. Degree programmes and research are closely linked and education is provided from undergraduate to doctoral level. The research area for doctoral studies known as Environmental Studies is broad and currently has 20 doctoral students at the School of Natural Sciences, Technology and Environmental Studies.
