Please note that you need to fulfil entry requirements for second cycle studies. You can find these through the links below.

Master's Programme in Languages 

The programme has twelve specialisations and offers Sweden’s broadest range of languages and language related subjects. The programme covers four semesters and is composed of courses and independent projects. A series of work-related seminars and organised study visits are part of the first year. You choose one or more main fields of study, e.g. language, literature and linguistics. Please note that only specialisation in German - as well as Turkic languages and general linguistics, given by other departments - are offered in English.

Master's Programme in the Russian Language in International Relations

During the whole programme, you develop your analytical and communicative skills in the Russian language, through analysis of cultural history, economic, legal, and political texts. You also acquire deeper knowledge about the development of Russian society, the Russian media landscape, the official rhetoric, and the political discourse in the country. You are trained in examining the Russian official and informal discourse, as well as Russian multimedia material from the perspective and context of present identity politics and politics of memory. You can spend a semester in Russia to further deepen your language proficiency and field-specific competence.

The Master's Programme in the Russian Language in International Relations is only offered in Swedish with Russian modules.

Master's Programme in German Studies

The programme has two specialisations, humanities and intercultural didactics. 
In the humanities specialisation, the first two semesters are dedicated to German and complementary courses. During the third and fourth semesters, you specialise in your main field of study. Parts of the studies are carried out at a German university.
In the intercultural didactics specialisation, you learn how to plan and analyse teaching in German in a multi-cultural environment, to reflect on the teaching and to realise and do research on the subject. You study in Uppsala the two first semesters and in Bochum the two final ones. Placement at universities, schools and public authorities in Sweden and Germany is part of the programme.

The master's programme in German studies is only offered in Swedish.

Master's Programme in Russian and Eurasian Studies

The Master's Programme in Russian and Eurasian Studies offers a unique opportunity to study Russia and the post-Soviet region while learning Russian through intensive language courses. The programme has an international profile and prepares you for a career as an analyst in the private and public sectors, in Sweden and abroad. The degree also qualifies for applying for doctoral studies in the Humanities or Social Sciences.
