SASA20 Education, Culture and Lifestyle in Sweden, 7.5 credits

Cultural development in Sweden, including the development of the educational system during the last century, is introduced and discussed.

The diversity of cultural patterns in different learning contexts - home, school, work, media, gender relations, intercultural settings - are described, analysed and compared. How does culture create meaning for its members and how are values interpreted by immigrants and visitors?

New conditions for learning and present concerns (equality, immigration, the European dimension, globalisation and sustainable development) create new lifestyles which are discussed within the framework of a multicultural society with its current problems and possibilities.
