This course introduces essential methodologies in the humanities and social sciences. It provides you with the necessary knowledge for identifying and accumulating new information, analyse and assess complex phenomena and representations, and to make inferences from scientific research at the advanced level. You will work with past and contemporary texts, objects, and fieldwork environments.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
