The Master’s programme is based on course modules of 15 credits full-time study. Some courses of 7.5 credits are also given. Students are expected to complete 30 credits per semester over two years. There is a possibility to terminate the programme after one year with a one-year master’s degree of 60 credits.
The courses in semester 1 are mandatory whereas the courses in semester 2 are elective. In semester 3, period 2, you may choose among the courses given by the departments affiliated to the Master’s programme or other courses at Uppsala University, universities in Sweden or elsewhere. Some courses may be taken on the Bachelor’s level. It is recommended, however, that students write their Master’s thesis (30 credits) in semester 3. Semester 4 offers the possibility to do an internship, or to take the elective courses at the department.
Note that it is customary in most university departments in Sweden to study only one course at a time since it requires your full time attention.
