Description

Lär dig navigera ett komplext medielandskap.

Från Tinder, Facebook och Netflix, till politiska utspel och journalistiska felsteg. Från äldre tiders hierarkiska och byråkratiska organisationer där chefen pekade med hela handen, till moderna kommunikativa ledare och platt företagskultur. Medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap täcker helt enkelt in de olika delar av samhälleligt och mänskligt liv som berörs av medier och kommunikation. Vad sker framöver? Översvämmas vi av information? Jämnas maktskillnader ut? Eller är det samma gamla, fast med nya medier och nya uttryckssätt?

Börjar du läsa medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap hos oss i Lund lär vid dig att att analysera, diskutera och vända och vrida på just sådana här frågor. Du får lära dig att inte bara svara rätt eller fel på tentan, utan också fundera över hur du formulerar dina svar och visa att du har förmågan att tänka självständigt.

Vi är, i allra högsta grad, analytiskt inriktade. Detta innebär att du hos oss utvecklar förmågor och får kunskaper som är av intresse för många olika typer av arbetsplatser. Dels får du värdefulla insikter från olika medie- och kommunikationsperspektiv, och dels kommer du lära dig hur du använder dessa insikter, kunskaper och förmågor så att du håller dig flexibel i en ständigt föränderlig medievärld. Grundkursen i medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap består av fyra olika delar:

  • Kommunikationens samhälleliga villkor 7,5hp
  • Mediernas utbud 7,5hp
  • Medieanvändning i vardagen 7,5hp
  • Kommunikation och interaktion 7,5hp

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.
