First cycle programmes (Bachelor)

Our programmes will prepare you for your chosen profession through continuous teaching and learning, practice periods and the possibility to study abroad. All four programmes require Swedish proficiency. For more information about our Bachelor’s programmes, please see the web pages below. 

Second cycle programmes (Master)

The Centre for Languages and Literature offers four international Master’s programmes with different specialisations, several of which correspond to the many languages available for study at the centre. Students can choose between studying Literature-Culture-Media, Languages and Linguistics,  European Studies and Film- and Media History. A Master’s programme entails two years of study but several programmes also offer the possibility of stepping off after one year (one-year Master). The Master’s programmes involve a substantial advancement of knowledge and proficiency in relation to the Bachelor’s programmes. In addition, several Master’s programmes serve as preparation for post-graduate studies and qualify students to apply to post-graduate programmes.
