Ersta Sköndal University College is dedicated to studies in the fields of social work, nursing and health care, psychotherapy, theology and church music with an explicit ethical and diaconal orientation.
The University College was founded on January 1st, 1998 through the merger of the undergraduate, post-graduate and research programmes of the Ersta Society for Diaconal Work and The Stora Sköndal Foundation. On October 5th, 2010 Bräcke Diakoni became a new part owner.
A distinguishing characteristic of the University College is that it offers courses in which theory is combined with practice, research with studies in the field, and that special attention is given to questions within philosophies of life and world views, professionalization and societal issues.
The University College has three campuses, one at Ersta, one at Stora Sköndal and one att Bräcke in Gothenburg, with a total of approximately 1400 students. Both campuses offer a unique study environment with a combination of old tradition and new interdisciplinary collaboration as well as opportunities for personal development.
