In this course human relation to the landscape is studied in an archaeological long time perspective. Using different archaeological examples, for example the Neolithic revolution in Scandinavia, various theoretical perspectives regarding humans and landscape are discussed. In what way do important institutions; like religion, technology, social organization and economy relate to environment and landscape, and in what way are these institutions affected by the landscape? What type of historical events, disasters and environmental changes and so on can be connected to population change in traditional societies? Have some traditional societies been targeted by catastrophes while others have prospered? Are there fundamental differences between hunters and gatherers and societies based on traditional agriculture or do we find gradual differences along a continuum? Do humans adapt to the landscape or do humans adapt the landscape to their own needs? How can we use different theories from other scholarly fields, for example ecology, when in explaining human interaction with the environment? Under what circumstances has traditional archaeological societies shown resilience and when are societies vulnerable to external trends (environmental change, disasters)?

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

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.
