Teaching ranges from introductory to advanced-level economics. Graduate courses in economics are given within the Swedish Graduate Program in Economics (SWEGPEC) in cooperation within six other Swedish universities. Economics

The PhD programme in economics at Södertörn University is organized jointly with SWEGPEC consisting of seven Swedish universities (Örebro University, Linköping University, Linnaeus University, Karlstad University, Södertörn University, Jönköping University, Dalarna University).
