Sociology

Sociology is the science about human social behaviour and relations between people and societies. Frequent sociological issues deal with processes and patterns of the interaction of groups and individuals, forms of organization of social groups, relations between groups, influence of groups on the behaviour of individuals and differencies among people in terms of power resources and life chances.

Sociology at Stockholm University is a top ranked subject. We are among top 50 in the world, according to QS World University Rankings.

Demography

Demography is the study of human populations – their size, composition and distribution across space – and the process through which populations change. Births, deaths and migration are the ‘big three’ of demography, jointly producing population stability or change. A population’s composition may be described in terms of basic demographic features – age, sex, family and household status – and by features of the population’s social and economic context – language, education, occupation, ethnicity, religion, income and wealth.

What we offer

We offer two Master's Programmes in Demography, a number of free standing courses and doctoral studies taught in English. We offer one course at the first level in Demography, which level is in Swedish and requires documented proficiency in Swedish for eligibility.
