Higher Education and Employment: The Changing Relationship. The Case of the Humanities and Social Science. Country Study: Sweden.
Andersson, Dan; And Others
This report, one of a series of country studies on higher education and employment, particularly in the humanities and social sciences, looks at employment for social science and humanities graduates in Sweden. Following an introduction in section 1, section 2 offers a short description of the evolution of humanities and social sciences in Swedish higher education. This section covers the organization of undergraduate study programs, the relative size of higher education study programs in the social sciences and humanities, and postgraduate recruitment. Section 3 presents a basis for comparisons with the labor market situation in other countries covering outflow into the labor market, changes in the market, and expected future developments. Section 4 deals in greater depth through case studies with a number of study programs, Social Work, Public Administration, and Humanities and individual subjects from the main "classical" disciplines in higher education: Economics, History and French. This section describes their content, organization and the role of the study programs and their relation to the employment sector. An appendix contains tables listing study programs for administrative, economic and social professions; study programs in the cultural and informational sectors; study times; costs for undergraduate study; and occupational breakdown by educational group.
