Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College is a private Swedish institution for higher education and research. The university college has departments for education in nursing, social work, church music, theology and psychotherapy as well as research within the field of social science, welfare rights, health care science and ethics, palliative care, diaconal research, organizational and worklife ethics and psychotherapy research.
The aims of the research programme are in line with the university college's diaconal history. In 1851, the first nurse training course in Sweden was launched by Marie Cederschiöld under the auspices of Ersta diakoni. The first socially oriented programme at national level began at the turn of the last century in the form of diaconal training at the Stora Sköndal Foundation.
