Specialisation in Linguistics

Students take four courses at advanced level in linguistics at the Department of English (each worth 7.5 credits) one term and write their master's degree project the following term.

Specialisation in Literature

Students take four courses at advanced level in literature at the Department of English (each worth 7.5 credits) one term and write their master's degree project the following term.

Application

Applications for courses in linguistics or literature should be made through www.antagning.se (check their website for deadlines).

You can only apply to do the degree project of 30 credits for the spring terms, and please note that you need to have completed the courses at advanced level to be eligible for the degree project.

If you would like to write the degree project in the autumn term, please contact the Department of English in good time before 15 April when applications close on antagning.se and we will advise whether this is possible. We can't, however, guarantee that we will be able to provide a supervisor for the degree project during autumn terms.
