The aim of this research is to evaluate whether the social environment of Swedish high school students affects their views on the multicultural society. The research material was collected through the use of two focus groups containing high school students from two different schools, one group is used to a multicultural social environment while the other group is used to a less multicultural social environment. With the researcher acting as a moderator in the focus groups, the students discussed different questions regarding multiculturalism, gender equality and religion. The theory that this research is based on suggests that the social environment and the social capital affects the students views on the multicultural society. The results of the research were evaluated and connected to the theory. The evaluated results were then further analyzed and two conclusions were made, first, that the social environments and the social capital has an affect on the students views on multiculturalism and second, that the educational system of the schools also affects the students and provides them with the elementary values that the society is based upon.
