is committed to challenging its students intellectually and
culturally. The challenge of intercultural education is to learn about the institutions and people of a different culture as you gain a better understanding of yourself and your own country. The distinctive features of the Program – our curricular breadth, high academic standards, commitment to cultural integration, our university setting, and small size - effectively promote this multifaceted learning experience.
We are a small program within an international university allowing us to bring you the best of both worlds. For example, our students take small classes IN ENGLISH and get to know their professors, other students, and our staff very well. At the same time, you have the benefit of being part of a university setting with access to facilities, events, student clubs, and social activities.
As the only program in English for American
undergraduates in Stockholm, our students
also have unusual opportunities outside the
University to meet Swedes as well as visit
government agencies, museums, or even -
if they win a student lottery – attend the
Nobel Prize Ceremony!
The Swedish Program poses a compelling intellectual and cultural challenge: to develop an understanding of how Sweden addresses political, economic, social, and artistic issues relevant to all advanced societies. This challenge reflects Sweden’s impressive history of innovative responses to issues such as financial downturns, environmental protection, immigration, health-care, education, and gender equality.
These topics are likewise studied in an interdisciplinary and critical tradition. Our objective is to promote a comprehensive view highlighting the country’s achievements as well as its contemporary problems. Students and scholars come from all over the world to study Sweden. The country’s appeal extends beyond its social and political institutions to its rich traditions in the arts, humanities, and science.
Our mission is to teach the values of global
citizenship effectively preparing students to
address the political, economic, social,
technological, and artistic issues of the 21st
century. Discovering different ways of thinking
and living constitutes an educational and
culture adventure. Join us for this unique
intellectual and personal challenge.
