A career as a historian?
Education at the Undergraduate Level
The Department of History offers several free-standing courses and a three-year Bachelor’s programme at the undergraduate level. The introductory course, as well as intermediate and Bachelor’s courses are offered every semester. The Bachelor’s programme in history commences every autumn semester. We also offer the introductory course and the intermediate course as on-line courses.
History can be the main subject in a Bachelor’s degree (via program or free-standing courses).
The majority of our education is in Swedish, but we also offer a selection of English-taught courses.

The Department offers a Master’s Programme in Historical Studies at the graduate level. The programme is offered jointly together with History of Ideas and Sciences at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences. The language of instruction is Swedish.

Education at the Doctoral Level
The department has doctoral educations in both history and human rights. In history, we have ca. 25 active PhD students. Acceptance to the doctoral education occurs when scholarships are advertised by The Faculties of Humanities and Theology, or by The National Graduate School in Historical Studies. The advertisements normally occur yearly, but can sometimes occur every other year.
The PhD studies comprise 240 ECTS-credits (four years of full-time studies). The studies include reading-courses and a dissertation project. The dissertation is deemed to take six semesters (180 credits).
