The course is an elective component of the Master of Arts programme in Language and Linguistics (HASPV). It is also offered as a freestanding course and can be included in a first or second cycle degree.
The course provides students with an introduction to theories of discourse and methods of discourse analysis that are used to analyse the discourses of society in areas such as politics, working life or education. The focus of the course is on the linguistic aspects of discourse analysis. It consists of both theoretical and practical components. The theoretical component includes presentations of different methods of discourse analysis and discussions of their fields of application. The practical component enables students to execute independent discourse analyses.
The course is an introduction to discourse analysis and is open for all students with a BA degree from humanities or the social sciences. Thus, you will benefit from inspiring cross-disciplinary meetings when studying notions, theories and methodologies of discourse analysis. Your knowledge will be applied in seminars and applied discourse analysis.
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 universityadmissions.se. 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.
Citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. You pay one instalment of the tuition fee in advance of each semester.
EU/EEA citizens and Switzerland
There are no tuition fees for citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
If you are required to pay tuition fees, you are generally also required to pay an application fee of SEK 900 (approximately EUR 100) when you apply at universityadmissions.se. You pay one application fee regardless of how many programmes or courses you apply to.
