Graduate studies and research at the Department of Education of the University of Linkoping are described. After providing a general review of the university with special consideration to the Department of Education, research and graduate studies offered in the various departments, as well as in the new institute for theme-oriented research, are briefly covered. Project descriptions of ongoing research in each of four areas are presented: teacher education and inservice teacher training, adult education, the general educational system, and fundamental and general behavioral science problems. Attention is also directed to graduate studies in education, including the aims, qualifications for admission, course work, advisors, and examinations. Two lines of study within the doctoral degree program are available--a general line and a teaching methods line--and a masters degree in education is also offered. Specific ongoing research projects include: experimenting with models of decentralized inservice teacher training that give the teacher a more active role and that emphasize the supportive role of central and regional authorities; integrating international questions in informal adult education; investigating obstacles encountered by workers in obtaining access to higher education; evaluating primary school education for adults with regard to the methods and work forms being used; studying possibilities for and effects of interdisciplinary project studies and increased student influence in upper secondary school; and investigating the views of students and faculty in the doctoral programs within the departments of education in Sweden.
