About the Master's Conferment

The Conferment of Master’s Degrees is an old academic tradition but a fairly new ceremony at Stockholm University. The first was held in 1997. The word promotion (used in the Swedish word Magisterpromotion) comes from the latin word promovere, which translates to advance or move forward,  but here in a figurative sense to promote.
