Our education

The Department of History offers courses and programmes at all educational levels, from courses at basic level to a Master's programme at the advanced level and also at postgraduate level. The Department of History is responsible for the graduate school in history, which is a collaboration between the Department of History in Lund, the University of Gothenburg, Malmö University, Linnaeus University and Södertörn University.

Most of our education is in Swedish. The Bachelor's programme, Master's programme, and our Doctoral studies are all conducted in Swedish. Even if the Department of History does not offer a English taught Bachelor's programme, we have a few courses where English is the means of instruction - students are welcome to apply for such free-standing courses or they can study via a student exchange programme.

Student Exchange Agreement

The Faculties of Humanities and Theology have established Exchange Agreements with over 60 universities in and outside Europe. Each partner university can nominate students to study in Lund during a period ranging from three to twelve months.

Find out whether your home university has a Student Exchange Agreement with the Faculties of Humanities and Theology.

Our courses in English

The Department of History offers three Special Area Studies (SAS-courses) at basic level in English.

These courses are all on Bachelor's level, and are worth 7.5 ECTS credits.

Our courses in English are open for students for application outside an exchange program.
