What is political science?

What is politics? Is man, as Aristotle argued, a political animal? What should the state do? And what happens if the state is about to crumble away? In what way does Sweden act in the EU – and what does Sweden mean for the EU? Who benefits from globalisation? Who is allowed to be a citizen? How are the climate changes to be handled politically? Whose security and what values are protected by the security policy? What is terrorism?

Courses & Programmes

All higher education in Sweden is based on courses. The courses often treat one single subject and may last a couple of weeks or a whole year. Programmes are constituted by courses. The University decides what courses to include in a programme and in what order the courses should be taken.
