University of Gothenburg

Contract education

In all our disciplines, we conduct our education and research in close interaction with public agencies, businesses and civil society. We therefore have extensive experience in combining academic knowledge and skills with the needs of society.

The Department of Cultural Sciences offers skills development and further education for organisations, public agencies and businesses. These might be one-day courses, stand-alone lecture series or longer ‘traditional’ university courses. We can also produce courses based around your needs and wishes concerning content, length and teaching format. We are currently running a doctoral course on equal treatment and diversity work for Chalmers University of Technology.

Rooted in our multidisciplinary cultural research, we offer contract education in areas including:

  • the participation of children and young people in democratic processes
  • media and information literacy
  • image analysis
  • gender equality and diversity work
  • market research for cultural institutions and businesses
