The Faculty of Arts offers thirteen undergraduate programmes, five master's programmes and a wide selection of freestanding humanities courses.

The course offerings consist of freestanding courses in around thirty linguistic and historical-philosophical subjects, of which most can be studied up to research level. Some of the courses are based on internet lectures and supervising.

Most of our programmes and courses are offered in Swedish, but a few courses and one master's programme can be studied in English. If you have no previous knowledge in Swedish you also have the possibility to start your undergraduate studies with a Swedish foundation course.
