About the Department

This is just a few of us at the department - there are many more of us.

Sociology aims to explain and interpret how people are formed by social conditions and how they can change those conditions.

Human geography provides an understanding of the singularity of places and how local and global processes interact. The Department of Sociology and Human Geography is Norway's leading educational department for both of these two disciplines, and it pursues research, teaching and dissemination at the highest level.

Breadth of topics and methods, and quality in the form of outstanding researchers, lecturers and advisors – and a gender-balanced academic staff, but also social relevance characterizes the department as a research and teaching environment.
