Courses in English

Freestanding courses

We offer freestanding courses in sociology and social anthropology at the Bachelor's and Master's level. The courses vary in length from 15 to 30 credits. A freestanding course is a single-subject module which may either be studied as part of a degree programme or on its own. Most of our Bachelor's courses are 'introductory' level and are open to all students who have finished upper secondary school studies.

Application periods

  • Autumn courses: mid March to mid April each year (the date varies).
  • Spring courses: mid September to mid October each year (the date varies).
