We are one of the youngest universities in Sweden – dynamic, brave, and innovative. The close link between research, education and cooperation is a foundational feature of the whole university, and social commitment is part of our university culture.
The University is located on one campus in Karlstad, offering a modern and creative environment. The inviting library lies at the heart of campus, providing a highly appreciated study environment for 16 000 students. Karlstad University also has a campus in Arvika, where the Ingesund School of Music with its 400 students is located.
Today, we offer around 70 degree programmes and over 900 single-subject courses at Bachelor and Master levels (first and second cycles). There is also an extensive distance education programme. One student in four chooses to study off campus.
