Samhällsvetenskapsprogrammet Social Science

Social Science

The International Social Science Programme is intended for students who are interested in how people and societies develop and function today in various ways. Other focus areas are History, Languages, Religions and Democracy.

The International Social Science Programme follows the syllabus for the Swedish Samhällsvetenskapsprogrammet (SA) using English as the language of instruction and communication.

What you will study

You learn about social structures and people’s living conditions from a national and global perspective. You broaden and extend your knowledge of various social issues through interpreting, explaining and applying the methods of the social sciences. You study International relations and focus on the United Nations’ (UN) key issues. We give you the opportunity to prepare for language proficiency tests, i.e. Cambridge Certificate (CAE).

After graduation

The programme lays the foundations for further studies in a broad range of social science areas in higher education, both in Sweden and abroad. The demand for high level English language skills, such as those provided by the Cambridge Certificate (CAE), is increasing all around the world. Passing Cambridge English: Advanced, shows that you are a high achiever
and it is a badge of excellence. CAE is an internationally recognized certificate and is looked upon favourably by future employers and can be used for your university and student Visa applications in the UK and Australia.
