Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government's recommendation is that all higher education institutions move to distance education from 18 March. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there is no teaching on university premises. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open.

The subject’s focus on research in applied linguistics provides a clear research profile. In general, it deals with the relationships between language and society and includes studies of how speech and writing are used in social practices.

Research in the subject strives to work with the areas we study. Theories in linguistics and textual scholarship are therefore combined with practice-based working methods.

The research profile has three main specialisations:

  • Linguistic practices in working life.
  • Critical linguistic analyses with ideological overtones.
  • Language in teaching and learning.

Swedish, along with Education, is part of the research area for doctoral studies called Studies in the Educational Sciences, which is where our doctoral education is conducted.
