About us

Welcome to the Department of Political Science

The Department of Political Science is one of the larger departments at Stockholm University and is located in the F-building (floors 4, 5 and 7), and Skogstorpet. Around ten administrators, 50 researchers and teachers, and 25 graduate students work here.

Around 1000 students from Sweden and the rest of the world take classes at our department, within subject areas ranging from Swedish politics to gender and development. The intermarriage between research interests and teaching competence is something we are particularly proud of. We have also comprehensive and much appreciated exchange programmes with other universities in Europe and the rest of the world.
