Welcome to School of Global Studies!

The pace and extent at which the arena of human action is becoming globalised is increasing. Social players and locations are being linked together in increasingly complex and diverse ways, making the field of Global Studies an important and timely field of knowledge. The School of Global Studies represents a unique environment for both research and education in these issues.

A multidisciplinary approach to global issues: The School of Global Studies is a multidisciplinary department and the combination of subjects illustrates the complexity of globalisation, based on Human Ecology, Human Rights, Peace and Development Research, Regional Studies, Social Anthropology and the study of world culture and globalised heritage (Museion). The School’s research environment also comprises six interdisciplinary research groups (Global Gender Studies, Global Heritage Studies, Global Sustainability Studies, Indigenous Studies, Migration and Diversity, Reconstruction and Intervention, Resistance Studies). The School of Global Studies welcomes interdisciplinary and interfaculty collaboration, and cooperates within research and education through various joint projects, exchanges and networks, both in Sweden and abroad.

The School of Global Studies’ broad basis in social sciences provides the ideal conditions for gaining a deeper understanding of contemporary issues and the opportunity to critically analyse current social phenomena within a globalised world. The department offers education at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Openness to the world around us: Cooperation with the world around us is a fundamental prerequisite. The School of Global Studies works together with a number of social functions, such as public authorities and non-governmental organisations.
