Research group The Umeå Research Centre for Social Studies Didactics brings together didactic research in civics, geography, religious studies and history.

This research environment consists of a network of scholars at both the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences. The environment is being supported by Umeå School of Education during the period 2016–2019 with a number of research appointments and funding for visiting professors. The Centre works to develop research with both short-term and long-term perspectives, and arrange joint seminars and visits by international researchers. The research concerns social studies education in preschool, compulsory school and/or upper secondary school, and comparative perspectives are encouraged.
