The Faculties of Humanities and Theology offers ten international Master's programmes. Several of the Master's programmes also offer different specialisations. Each Programme consists of 120 ECTS credits, i.e. two years of studies.
Applied Cultural Analysis
This programme aims to develop and deepen students' knowledge and skills within the field of applied cultural analysis
Archaeology, Theory and Practice
This programme combines high scientific and theoretical standards with intensive practical training within Archaeology, Cultural Heritage and Museology. You will be trained in how to excavate and document the past, how to preserve artefacts and buildings and how to communicate your findings and research results to a wider audience.
The aim of this transdisciplinary programme is to provide you with advanced knowledge about current issues in Asia. You will gain expertise on contemporary Asian societies and will be able to specialise, based on the regional, thematic and disciplinary focus you choose.
This is an interdisciplinary programme with a unique perspective on Europe. The program specifically targets those who are interested in understanding Europe from a broader, humanist, point of view and who want to apply this perspective in careers related to European cultural and identity politics and Europe-wide communication. Our focus lies on culture, identity and communication, addressed with both theoretical sophistication and career pragmatism.
Film and Media History
The programme provides film studies and media history students with an opportunity for interdisciplinary specialisation. The name of the field, film and media history, underlines that the media manifestations studied are placed in a historical and therefore social, cultural and political context
Human Rights Studies (new programme)
This programme combines historical, philosophical, political, and legal perspectives on the complex phenomenon that human rights represent in our world. We are committed to the view that human rights need to be regarded and studied not only as ethical principles or ground for law and policy, but also as part of the infrastructure of a democratic society.
Language and Linguistics
This programme consists of 18 specialisations. The many specialisations help to provide a broad selection of advanced courses in languages and in linguistics. As the programme offers many optional elements, students can choose freely between courses and design a programme to suit their interests.
Literature – Culture – Media
The aim of this master’s programme is to strengthen the student’s historical knowledge and theoretical understanding of relations between literature, culture in general and modern media. Consequently the literary text is studied from an intercultural and interdisciplinary perspective.
Specialisation options in 2019/20:
Religious Roots of Europe
This programme focuses on the formative periods of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, their common roots, early interaction and contributions to European culture. The programme prepares students for educational and social work in a multi-religious society or for research on the role of the three religions in European history and society. This is a Nordic Master´s programme offered by the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies at Lund University in cooperation with the universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen and Oslo.
This master's programme aims to strenghten the student's theoretical knowledge and understanding of the vital importance of images – or, the visual – for communication in society. Here, this visuality is studied from a critical and intermedial perspective, which includes elements of sound or music, and where aspects like power, history, social relations, gender, and ethnicity are central. The programme is mainly constructed as an interdisciplinary combination of Art History and Visual Studies, Film Studies, and Musicology.
