Description

Kursens målsättning är att ge en grundläggande kunskap om Medelhavsområdets antika kulturer, från bronsåldern (Kreta och Mykene, andra årtusendet f.Kr.) över den arkaiska och klassiska kulturen i Grekland, den hellenistiska perioden efter Alexander den Stores erövringar samt utvecklingen i Italien och Västeuropa under det romerska imperiet fram till 300-talet e.Kr. Denna grund används också för att diskutera centrala begrepp inom vårt kulturarv: mytologi, litteratur, konst och monumentalisering, liksom stads- och statsutveckling, grekiskt och romerskt imperiebyggande, det demokratiska systemet i det klassiska Athen osv. Utgångsmaterialet för kursen täcker arkeologi, konst, arkitektur, religion, vardagsliv, litteratur och filosofi; under kursen får studenterna också delta i ett antal övningstillfällen för att själva direkt bekanta sig med antikt källmaterial (arkeologi, konst, litteratur) som komplement till kurslitteraturen. Här kommer samlingar omhändertagna av Lunds universitets historiska museum att vara en viktig resurs jämte exkursioner till Köpenhamns antiksamlingar. På samma sätt utgör information om pågående svenska fältprojekt i Medelhavsområdet en viktig del i undervisningen.

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.
