About the Faculties

The Humanities and Theology form one faculty area at Lund University. The area consists of eight departments and offers studies in subjects ranging from cultural sciences, history, philosophy, archaeology, languages and literature to theology and religious studies. A number of the subjects taught through the Faculties of Humanities and Theology have been part of the curriculum at Lund since the university was founded in 1666. Studies in these fields today are mostly individually designed, being combinations of independent courses. There are also fixed degree programmes. Courses taught at our departments may be included in degrees conferred by other faculti

The faculties conduct very extensive research. According to the most recent evaluation it shows great strength in many fields.

The Faculties of Humanities and Theology also include the Ethnology Archive and the Archive of Church History, as well as the shared Humanities Laboratory whose advanced infrastructure supports research and education.
