Uppsala University Exchange
Study politics from an international perspective at Uppsala University’s Department of Government in Sweden. The program in politics offers a wide range of courses including Swedish politics, international politics, political theory, comparative politics, administrative politics, European politics, political psychology and development studies.
At the Department of Government, every aspect of political life is studied - from the ideas of ancient thinkers to the decision-making of today. The problems of democracy are dealt with from the point of view of classical theory and contemporary debate. At the department, the rules and practices of Swedish politics, the origins of power and the execution of power among the electorate, parties and the government are studied. Other study areas are comparative studies of foreign countries, systems of government and politics, as well as the interplay between states at the global political arena.
The city of Uppsala is Sweden's fourth largest city. Perhaps best known for its 15th century university, the city also offers beautiful surroundings, a lively cultural scene and a rapidly expanding business sector. Uppsala is located 44 miles north of Sweden’s capital, Stockholm. The city's resident population is 190,000.
Uppsala is the oldest university in the Nordic countries–established in 1477. Today's outstanding research and education are deeply rooted in history. Living traditions and culture are one of the strengths of Uppsala University. The University still observes a number of ancient ceremonies, symbols, and festivities, at the same time modifying and renewing them to meet today's demands. The long history of Uppsala University is a natural part of academic life at Uppsala and constitutes the foundation on which today's students and researchers are creating the University of tomorrow.
