Economic history is not only about the past; it is also a way to look at the present and the future in the context of accumulated experience. Core courses deal with population and living standards, institutions and economic growth, as well as the international economy and globalisation. Optional courses are offered on a broad range of topics. Methodological issues are addressed in both qualitative and quantitative terms and you will acquire the ability to carry out investigations and analyses concerning changes in social and economic conditions under different circumstances.
Lund University is renowned for its research in economic history, which is of high international standard. The programme takes full advantage of this thriving environment, giving our students an invaluable link to state-of-the-art research.
At Lund University you will experience a unique atmosphere with informal relations between students and professors, where personal initiative and innovative and critical thinking are not only encouraged but also expected. This academic approach proves to be an asset when graduates later step out into the world of work, having grown both as professionals and individuals.
The full programme comprises two years of full-time study, but there will be a provision to leave after one year with a Master of Science (60 credits).
The application deadline apply to all applicants - international as well as Swedish applicants.
