Stand-alone courses

We offer stand-alone 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 stand-alone 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).

    Master's Programmes

    A master's programme lasts 2 years (120 credits) and leads to a degree of Master of Science (MSc). Some master's programmes are thematic which means that you specialize in a particular field. Others contain more choice and make it possible for you to steer the focus of the programme. To be eligible for a master's programme you must have a bachelor's degree.
