At the Faculty of Culture and Society, research and education concerns many of the major issues of our time – for example those dealing with global politics, new media and sustainable urban development – from humanistic, social science and design science perspectives.

The Faculty is a creative, evolving and cross-border academic environment characterised by a high degree of internationalisation and collaboration with others, both inside and outside the academy. We are located in the centre of Malmö, but our perspectives cover the whole world. We are organised into three departments: Urban Studies, Global Political Studies and the School of Arts and Communication.
