The Department of History is located only ten minutes from Stockholm City centre.

To be situated in the capital of Sweden provides great advantages since we benefit from access to major archives, museums and governmental agencies.



The Department offers a wide variety of introductory and advanced courses in history that will challenge any undergraduate or graduate student. We also contribute to the education of teachers in history.
