Six different programs are offered at SVF:
The General Curriculum
One third of the students at SVF attend this program. It is equivalent to community colleges for ages 16-19, providing a second chance for those whose studies have been interrupted. Most major subjects are studied under a period of 1-3 years, depending on the student’s individual needs.
The Bible Program
The Bible program is divided into three parts: one year long course, one semester long course and one year of internship in a congregation in the Mission Covenant Church of Sweden. It is also possible to do an internship of three months in India with the Hindustani Covenant Church. The curriculum focuses on studies of the Old and New Testament.
The International College Program
For more than 30 years this program has exchanged students with North Park University (NPU) in Chicago, USA. The fall semester is spent at SVF and the spring at NPU. The aim is to enhance the students’ language skills and their understanding of cultural differences.
You can find more information about this program on the NPU website.
The Public Relations and Advertising Program
The students are trained to use all modern computer based systems to convey information, to understand how the media society functions and to create printed matters and ads. The program spans two years and includes integrated trainee periods.
The Program of Journalism
A two-year program with a specialization during the second year of either radio, television or printed journalism.
The Music Department
One or two years of training musical skills, both in instrument practice and in music theory. The choir of the Music Department plays an important role in the education, and it has made concert tours in Sweden as well as abroad, e.g. the United Kingdom, the USA, Germany, Austria and Russia.
