Fall 2020

Teaching on both the bachelor’s and master’s levels during the fall semester has thus far taken place online. Beginning Period 3, which starts on November 3, some teaching will be held on campus. Lectures will continue to take place via Zoom. 

On the Bachelor’s level two seminars per course (7.5 ECTS) will be held on campus. On the Master’s level all seminars will be held on campus. Seminars will be held in smaller groups or larger classrooms in order to reduce the risk of infection. For those who do not want to or are not able to travel to campus, it will be possible to participate via Zoom. More detailed information about the seminars will be available via the learning platform Athena well in advance of the course start. Individual advising can either take place on campus or via Zoom  on what teachers and students come to agree upon. 

If conditions change based on new recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Agency or SU, we may have to make further changes. These will be announced via the course pages on Athena and on the department's website.

Remember that it is important to continue to follow the Swedish Public Health Agency’s recommendations to avoid public transport if possible, practice physical distancing, and to always stay at home if you feel ill.  

Spring 2021

There is continuing great uncertainty concerning the development of Covid-19 in Sweden and Europe. For that reason, it is very difficult to plan for classroom teaching during the coming year. One thing that is certain is that it will be possible to participate in classes via Zoom. At the moment, we plan to conduct teaching on the undergraduate and masters levels in a mixed form. Students who cannot or prefer not to come to campus will be able to participate via Zoom in all forms of teaching—lectures, seminars, and individual advising. There will, however, also be opportunities for students to take part in classroom teaching on campus. How exactly this will be done in practice will depend, among other issues, on the size of the classes and whether the lecturer will be able to engage in classroom teaching. More detailed information about the specific courses will be made available via the learning platform Athena well in advance of the course start. If conditions change based on new recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Agency or the Vice-Chancellor at Stockholm University, we may have to make further changes. These will be announced via the course pages on Athena and on the department's website.
