TEMA - Department of Thematic Studies



TEMA - a unique academic environment for thematically structured, interdisciplinary and practical societal research that takes place between and beyond the boundaries of disciplines. We combine strong research with education assignments, in which we also engage organisations and bodies from outside the academy. We educate our students and new researchers in critical, creative and innovative thinking for the benefit of science as well as the development of society.

High-quality doctoral studies

Our doctoral studies have not been reviewed by the Swedish Higher Education Authority (UKÄ) for several years; a new round is therefore being planned. But UKÄ has jumped the gun with a pilot group to test the new evaluation model. Among those in the starting gate was the Department of Thematic Studies - Technology and Social Change.

The unified judgement from UKÄ: high quality.

“What’s especially great is that we, as an interdisciplinary environment, got a good opinion for interdisciplinary breadth, but also for a high level of relevance in relation to more discipline-oriented fields. First of all, we have the ambition of developing a high level of interdisciplinary skill, but as our doctors choose different paths it’s important that they are also relevant within other fields,” says Roger Klinth, head of the Department of Thematic Studies.
