About us

The Department of Sociology at Lund University was founded in 1947 and is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Department has currently about 1 100 students and about 100 employees. You will find us on Paradisgatan 5, Lund, house G.

We conduct research in a variety of fields, which is also reflected in our wide range of courses given both on campus in Lund and as so called Distance education via the Internet. We offer courses and programmes on both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.


The department offers courses in Sociology, Social Anthropology and Education - both on campus and on the Internet.


Read more about the department’s different research environments and many projects within the fields of modern Sociology, Social Anthropology and Education on our research-pages.
