Hello student! We wish you very welcome to the Department and your studies 2022 and 2023!

Our teaching

We teach on campus during autumn and spring semester. For distance courses in ethnology, teaching takes place through the learning platform Studium and Zoom.

It is important that you stay up to date on your studies - there can be changes in where, when and how the teaching will be carried out.

The distance courses in ethnology are given from Campus Gotland. Register for the course (or courses) you have been admitted to in Ladok.

If you have questions about the distance courses, contact coordinator Carina Johansson.

Studium – the learning platform

All course information – schedule, teacher contacts, reading instructions, literature lists, assignments and more – can be found in the learning platform Studium. For the summer course Ethnographic Methods in a Digitalised World a different channel will also be used, but to begin with there is information under the course syllabus i Studium – see below.

As with registration, you must first have activated your student account to be able to log in to Studium. Please note that it may take a day or so after you have register before you can log in.

You can read our syllabi without being logged in as soon as the courses are published:

Second Cycle Studies

Have you changed your mind, or been prevented?

If you decide to terminate a course, you do that in Ladok for students. It is important that our teachers will know if you will attend to a course or not; and important so that another student can be notified of a possible admission.

If you terminate a course before three weeks have passed since the course started, it will be an early break. You can then apply for the course again.

If you terminate a course later than three weeks after the start of the course, you will not be able to apply for the course again. If you want to resume your studies at a later time, you can contact the department directly and be re-registered if there is an available place.

Important! If you are waiting to receive a grade for a sub-module in a course, the grade needs to be registered in Ladok before you terminate the course.

If you want to terminate a programme, you must report it to the department.

If you waiting for to have a grade registered on a course/module it must be registered in Ladok before you terminate the programme.

Anyone who has terminated a programme and wants to study the programme again must apply to the programme to be admitted.

Information that need to be e-mailed to the department when terminating a programme:

I want to terminate the programme [name of the programme]
Student: [social security number] and [first and last name]

If you want to apply for an academic leave of absence, there is a special form for that. The director of studies grants or rejects. The form need to be emailed to the Department.
