Maritime history is a well-established field of research at the Department of History. For example, relationships between navies/naval warfare and the rise of fiscal military state has been studied as a part of Sweden's early modern history, as well as broadly based comparisons of naval developments in the world.

Since 2010 research in maritime history is concentrated in Centre for Maritime Studies, CEMAS. The Centre is a cooperative effort of Stockholm University and National Maritime and Transportation Museums. It is a research organization engaged in the pursuit of all aspects of maritime studies: maritime history, maritime ethnology, and marine archeology.
