Area of interests: Arts and Humanities
How are different cultures created and how do they affect us? Arts and Humanities is an area of interest that includes a wide variety of subjects such as Archaeology, Philosophy, History, Religion, Ethnology, Literature, and Theatre and Performance Studies. In one way or another these subjects are an expression of how culture affects human beings and society. As a student you will improve your analytical skills and learn to identify different lines of development, often in an interdisciplinary context. Studies within Arts and Humanities give you broad general competence that is very useful in the job market, where autonomy, analytical and communication skills are in great demand.
Fashion studies critically analyses the role of fashion in society. Until recently fashion has been a subject neglected at university level, and research in the area has been partly pursued through association with textile collections in museums of cultural history or through other disciplines in the university.
Today, fashion is a growing area of international study, and research in fashion has become an important academic area. The study of fashion can be seen globally from a variety of different perspectives. It can include the study of fashion as seen on the catwalk, in the street, in the home, at work, on a daily basis or in more formal situations.
As a student on the introductory course in fashion studies at Stockholm University you will learn how to analyse fashion as a social process in a variety of ways. Through continuous training, you will learn to speak and write about fashion from an academic perspective. Fashion studies is the central area of study if you wish to have a career in the fashion industry, or continue research at post-graduate level.
