In addition, there are over 500 courses that students may choose to study independently. The university has the right to confer Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees and hopes to be granted full university status within the near future. The concepts of diversity multidisciplinary education and research, and active citizenship are evident in all activities. Students and staff work across subject boundaries and strive for depth and breadth in teaching and research. Many of the courses and programmes deal with issues of ethnicity, migration and nationalism in modern Europe and require understanding and respect for cultural and social diversity. Students at Södertörn University are trained in critical and independent thought processes so that they not only receive a thorough academic education but, on completion of their studies, go on to become active members of society. There is a strong link between teaching and research. A considerable part of all research focuses on the history and culture of Eastern and Central Europe, particularly the Baltic Sea Region. Södertörn University has extensive international ties.
