Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Uppsala University

Programme website: Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies

More

The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies is open to students with a Bachelor's degree in Humanities or Social Sciences with a degree specialisation in Scandinavian Studies. The programme opens career possibilities within the field of cultural communication, for instance as an interpreter or information officer in government administration, as well as in public organisations and international companies. The programme also opens career paths in compulsory and upper-secondary schools (language teacher), and for graduate studies.

The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies is a cross-disciplinary programme combining studies in Literature and Scandinavian Studies. The aim is to give students the possibility to study both historical and contemporary cultural expressions, as well as similarities and differences between the Scandinavian languages, and their culture and literature.

The programme combines compulsory courses and free electives. It begins with an advanced introduction to Scandinavian language and literature, as well as a course in theory and method (oriented towards either literature or the Swedish language). The second semester includes the courses Sung, Said, Written. Scandinavian Cultural Expressions from 1600 to the Present, and Swedish 18th Century Culture from a European Perspective (alternatively Swedish 18th Century Culture from a Global Perspective). If you are doing the full two year programme, you are also offered the courses Cinematic Adaptations of Scandinavian Literature, and Academic Writing in Swedish. During the second year, you have the opportunity of taking an internship.

The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies is a two year programme, and leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Scandinavian Studies as the main field of study. You can also graduate after one year, in which case you will attain a Master of Arts (60 credits) with Scandinavian Studies as the main field of study

Master Programme in Early Modern History

Programme duration: 2 years (120 ECTS credits)

University: Uppsala University

Programme website: Master Programme in Early Modern History

More

The Master Programme in Early Modern History aims to provide students with a greater appreciation and understanding of the late Medieval and Early Modern world (roughly 1350-1850) along with the theoretical and research skills needed to conduct independent historical research. Looking back at this period there is much that can seem strange and repulsive to us: devastating witch crazes, judicial torture, spectacular manifestations of power and subordination, a massive expansion of slavery, ubiquitous religious fervour, war, riots and revolution. They all convey a sense of the past as a foreign country.

At the same time, the Early Modern period presents phenomena and processes that look much more familiar: emerging bureaucratic states organised around the ability to tax citizens and wage war, new consumption patterns, new poor relief systems, the birth of public spheres, and an increasingly 'global' set of convergences that include intercontinental trade, exploration, conquest and the large scale movement of people around the globe. These developments helped form the basis of modern society, which is precisely why historians often label the period 'Early Modern'.
 
The programme also aims to give you the theoretical and research skills you need to conduct your own independent historical research. While the main focus of the Master Programme in Early Modern History is European history, comparative approaches are encouraged. As part of the programme, you will gain broad knowledge of the Early Modern history of Europe and of political, economic, cultural and social developments in the region, along with some knowledge of developments in other parts of the globe.

You will acquire skills in researching and writing, and learn to analyse a wide array of primary sources, including early handwritten materials material artefacts, and online databases. You will be introduced to digital humanities approaches, and you will have access to a number of digital resources and databases, and to the rich Early Modern manuscript and book collections of the Uppsala University Library.

You have the opportunity go through an internship at one of the Swedish museums or cultural institutions or to do a research internship within one of the research projects at the department. Finally, you will complete a Master's thesis based on original historical research.

Master Programme in International Tax Law and EU Tax Law

Programme duration: 1 year (60 ECTS credits)

University: Uppsala University

Programme website: Master Programme in International Tax Law and EU Tax Law

More

The Master Programme in International Tax Law and EU Tax Law is a full-time, one-year programme at an advanced level. The general objective is to provide a deep understanding of major issues of international and EU tax law. The programme is given in English and opens for careers in law and accounting firms, tax authorities, ministries of finance, multinational companies, and courts.

International tax law refers to the different sources of law, whether domestic or supranational, that regulate the taxation of cross-border activities. International tax law is a very interesting, yet complex area, as international tax rules aim at achieving a delicate balance between the development of cross-border activities and the prevention of tax avoidance. This area is also subject, for the Member States of the European Union, to the law of the EU, which implies an increased complexity but also a better protection for taxpayers.

Teaching is focused on seminars where students discuss cases previously prepared in small groups of three to five students. There are also lectures and visits to the Swedish Tax Agency, law firms and/or accountancy firms.
 
The programme leads to a Master of Laws (60 credits) LLM with Legal Science as the main field
of study.

Master Programme in Humanitarian Action and Conflict

Programme duration: 1 year (60 ECTS credits)

University: Uppsala University

Programme website: Master Programme in Humanitarian Action and Conflict

More

What is humanitarian action? In what ways are humanitarian emergencies intensified and changed by conflict? What factors define a humanitarian disaster? What laws and moral principles steer humanitarian interventions? The Master Programme in Humanitarian Action and Conflict is aimed at those who are interested in humanitarian work both in Europe and the world at large.

Humanitarian work transcends boundaries, as is testified by fact that the largest humanitarian organisations work in many different countries and that humanitarian professionals come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Both natural disasters and conflicts need technical experts from areas such as medicine, logistics, sanitation and psycho-social care. In addition there is a need for project managers, administrators and policy developers to realise and shape humanitarian response.

When humanitarian professionals face severe challenges, such as the conflict in Syria, there is also a need for a multi-disciplinary approach in order to understand the causes of the suffering. There is otherwise a risk that the humanitarian response will be ineffective and futile. This Master's programme at Uppsala University is especially suited for those who want a better understanding of humanitarian work in conflict situations and who are interested in working with the great humanitarian challenges of today.
