Södertörns högskola övergår till distansundervisning - ingen undervisning i högskolans lokaler från och med onsdag 18 mars.

Regeringen rekommenderade den 18 mars att alla högskolor och universitet går över till distansundervisning. Södertörns högskola har följt rekommendationen och ingen undervisning sker i högskolans lokaler tillsvidare, med största sannolikhet gäller detta hela vårterminen. Alla salsskrivningar ersätts med alternativ examinationsform under hela vårterminen. Studenter ombeds att ta del av information från respektive kurs eller program via Studiewebben. Medarbetare och studenter kommer in i högskolans lokaler med passerkort och både Infocenter och Biblioteket är öppna. Om du befinner dig i högskolans lokaler, tänk på att hålla avstånd till andra. För att minska smittspridningen har vi valt att stänga alla grupprum i biblioteket.

What's included?

Theoretical and methodological skills for analysing real-world problems

This Master’s degree comprises two semesters of full-time study. In the first semester there is a compulsory course in Mathematics for Economics, as well as three elective courses. All these courses are worth 7.5 credits. If you start in the autumn semester, these courses have a greater focus on environmental economics and macroeconomics, whereas if you start in the spring there is more of a focus on international economics and microeconomics. The second semester concentrates on writing your dissertation, which is worth 30 credits.

A Master’s programme is different to studying an undergraduate degree, as it requires more independent work and self-motivation. It also has a clear focus on in-depth analysis and the problematisation of knowledge. You learn to use your theoretical and methodological skills as tools to identify, structure and analyse economic problems. This degree programme also provides you with insights into and in-depth knowledge of how companies and organisations develop and use their innovation capacity in global competition.

Semester 1

Autumn: Mathematics for Economics at Master Level, Environmental Economics and Sustainable Development, Advanced Macroeconomics, Comparative Socio-Economic Systems

Course design

You will study alongside 10-20 other students and are expected to study full-time. There are lectures, seminars and practical seminars in computer laboratories, and you will be awarded grades based on both written examinations and take- home examinations, as well as your Master’s dissertation. There is a great deal of independent study, although work on the dissertation also includes seminars, writing workshops and meetings with your supervisor.
