Kursens mål är, förutom att ge fördjupade kunskaper i att använda det tyska språket i tal och skrift, att förmedla fördjupade kunskaper om de tyskspråkiga ländernas litteratur och kultur samt ge träning i självständigt arbete.

I kursen fördjupas dina kunskaper om tysk syntax samtidigt som olika grammatiska beskrivningsmodeller behandlas genom att olika grammatikor jämförs. Genom berättarteoretiska analyser av flera tyskspråkiga romaner och en introduktion i grundläggande berättarteoretiska och interpretationsteoretiska modeller fördjupas de studerandes kunskaper om den moderna tyskspråkiga litteraturen. Den skriftliga språkfärdigheten tränas genom översättning av svenska texter till tyska, varvid ett urval av speciella svårigheter fokuseras.

Kursen ger också en överblick över det tyska språkets historia samt en fördjupning och breddning av studiet av den äldre tyskspråkiga litteraturen. Genom författandet av en språk- eller litteraturvetenskaplig uppsats tränas förmågan till självständigt vetenskapligt arbete.

This course is not open as a freestanding course next semester. It can be open for application within a programme or for students in an exchange programme. Please ask your academic advisor for information.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
