The aim of the course is to provide students with specialised insight and understanding of intermedial phenomena and theories from both historical and present-day perspectives. For the purposes of the course, intermediality is defined as the interrelationships between media and art forms and the discourses that have been used and are used to describe these relationships. The concept of media is approached as a broad and open phenomenon and is aesthetically, semiotically and cognitively problematised. Aspects of production and reception are highlighted. The main focus of the course is on the aesthetic, literary and medial development trends of the last centuries. A number of aesthetic, intermedial phenomena will be addressed in discussion and analysed in different types of exercises. Among the aesthetic arts phenomena treated are literature, pictorial art, music, film, television, cartoons and digital media.

The course is a compulsory component of the Master of Arts programme in Literature – Culture – Media. It is also offered as a freestanding course.


The course is not open for applications through / next semester. Please contact the department for more 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.
