The article gives an overview of the emergence and expansion of education in sustainable development within Swedish HE based on anonymised individual-based data of all registered students, 1977–2009. The major trend is that environmental education – education in environmental sciences, applied ecology and sustainable education included – has expanded rapidly during this time period. However, there are large differences between these areas. By far the largest area during the whole period is Environmental Studies, established in 1977. Sustainable development first appeared in 1995 and remained marginal until the Bologna system was introduced in Sweden in 2007. Despite the rapid expansion of Sustainable Development in the last three years of the studied time period, it is difficult to speak of the area as fully established.
