About optional courses

There are 60 HECs of optional courses. 45 of 60 HECs must be courses in the Department of Human Geography (or equivalent courses). 15 of 60 HECs can be any university course – decided by the student – that is not overlapping. Maximum 30 of 60 HECs can be first cycle courses.

For each course there are special eligibility requirements.

For every master programme student an individual study plan is made in the beginning of the first semester. The study plan will be discussed and revised during the programme.

The above courses are all run by the Department of Human Geography. In semester 2 or 3 it is possible to study optional courses in other Stockholm University departments or in other universities via exchange programmes
