Our research aims to constantly add new aspects to what we already know and open up fresh platforms for knowledge, interaction and communication.
The research areas focus on the conditions for education and communication. It spans the humanities, behavioural sciences, social sciences, theology, natural sciences and media and communication sciences. We offer PhD programmes in education and media and communication science.
Our research takes place in six different research areas:
- CCD - Communication, Culture and Diversity
- CHILD - Children, Health, Intervention, Learning and Development
(with the School of Health and Welfare)
- LL - Lifelong Learning
- MKV - Media and Communications
- PER - Practice based Educational Research
- SUS - Sustainable Societies (information in Swedish only)
A centre focuses on a certain area of research and development and aims at creating a dynamic platform for collaboration between disciplines, institutions and organisations in Sweden and globally.
The School of Education and Communication hosts one centre:
Encell - The National Centre for Lifelong Learning - has a government mandate to promote and conduct research on lifelong learning as well as disseminate knowledge about lifelong learning and adult education in partnerships and networks.
