Stockholm University will be open from August 17, but we at the Department of Sociology assume that restrictions regarding e.g. social distancing and the number of people allowed to gather will remain unchanged in the fall. Given the number of Sociology students, the department has therefore decided that all teaching at undergraduate level including exams in the period August 2020 to January 17th 2021 will be online via Zoom.
 
On the advanced level, teachers can decide whether they prefer to teach via Zoom only or use a hybrid model (Zoom and classroom teaching), provided that restrictions are met (social distance and less than 50 people gathered). For all levels, examination is done via Zoom or take-home exam (no in-class exam).
 
Given the uncertainty of the situation, the above may change. For information on changes and what applies to each course or sub-course, you are therefore primarily referred to the learning platform Athena. We urge you to keep yourself updated on what is happening/ applies to your course/ sub-course, as well as on Stockholm University's information page about the Corona virus.

Sincerely,
Peter Åkerbäck, Director of Studies for undergraduate and advanced level
Sunnee Billingsley, Director of Studies for the Graduate programme
