The Department of Sociology is located right in the heart of Lund, a few minutes away from Lund Cathedral. This small campus area with beautiful trees and architecture is called Paradiset (meaning paradise) and offers plenty of study areas and several cafés, as well as a number of other Social Science departments and the main University Library.
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 and holds three subjects: Sociology, Social Anthropology and Education.
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 online, via so called distance learning. We offer courses and programmes on both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Three subjects promoting creative research
Three classical social science disciplines are included in one department encouraging a creative and interesting research environment that promotes interdisciplinary projects and collaborations. Research at the Department of Sociology revolves around explaining how people organize themselves in a social, cultural and historical context through the three fields Sociology, Social Anthropology and Education.
You will find us on Paradisgatan 5, Lund, house G.
