    The Department of Linguistics offers courses and programmes in General Linguistics, Phonetics, Computational Linguistics, Sign Language and Swedish as a second language for the deaf.

    Most of our courses and programmes require documented proficiency in Swedish. Every year we do however offer some courses where the language of instructions is in English (see below). If you already have a bachelor’s degree and are interested in studying for a master’s degree, we offer a two-year master’s programme in English. We also organize Ph.D. programmes.

    Under Courses and programmes you will find information about our current range of courses and programmes in English and other useful information related to the education.
