Department of Culture and Media Studies

Welcome to the Department of Culture and Media Studies! We conduct research and offer courses in eight subjects: Art History, Cultural Analysis, Cultural Entrepreneurship, Ethnology, Literary Studies and Creative Writing, Media and Communication Studies, Journalism, and Museology. Most of our courses are taught primarily in Swedish, but we also offer courses entirely in English. Our teachers and researchers cooperate across disciplines and with external partners, making the department a creative enviroment and stimulating meeting point.
