We offer courses and programmes in the following subjects: Aesthetics, Art History, Comparative Literature, English, Gender Studies, Media and Communication Studies, Philosophy, Swedish and the Theory of Practical Knowledge. You can study up to Master’s level in all subjects, although the Theory of Practical Knowledge only offers a one-year Master’s degree.
We also offer a number of programmes at Bachelor’s level. These consist of programme-specific courses and course combinations in subjects offered by the school and, in some cases, from other schools. The main subject is always one of the school’s subjects. We also have one-year Master’s programmes in Gender Studies and the Theory of Practical Knowledge. Several programmes focus on professional education and training.
There are also some courses that cover less than one semester of full-time study. These include access courses in writing and multilingualism, history of philosophy and courses in gender studies.
Courses can be studied at different rates, either full-time or part-time. For more information about our courses and programmes, please visit the subject’s webpage or the university’s programme and course webpages.
Students and the labour market
Our students benefit from good contacts with the surrounding community, thanks to visiting lecturers and study visits. A significant proportion of the students’ degree projects are conducted in collaboration with various organisations, public agencies and businesses, and many of our programmes include placements. Students have access to SH Innovation at Södertörn University, which offers advice on how to develop an idea and make it reality.
We have developed a range of contract education over the years, such as courses from the Centre for Studies in Practical Knowledge and in Swedish.
