Faculty of Engineering
The Faculty of Engineering, LTH, is a faculty of Lund University and has overall responsibility for education and research in engineering, architecture and industrial design. Our strategies are based on diversity and cross-boundary cooperation and are characterised by gender equality, participation, quality and renewal.
For more than 50 years, education, research and innovations with their roots in LTH have made a significant and lasting impression on society.
Today, we are home to some of Sweden’s most attractive study programmes, and have a broad research base. We are world-leading in a number of fields, including nanotechnology, combustion physics and medical technology.
The Faculty of Engineering, LTH, is home to 9,600 students and 1,500 employees from all over the world. Most of our programmes are taught in Lund, but a few are housed at the campus in Helsingborg, and the School of Aviation is located in Ljungbyhed.
Faculty of Science
The goal of the Faculty of Science at Lund University is to conduct operations of the highest standard in order to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
At Lund University’s Faculty of Science, we study and describe the physical world. We seek to understand everything from the smallest components of nature and molecular processes in the human body to the sensitivity of climate systems and the capacity of exoplanets to support life. Research in science enables the development of new drugs, new building materials and models that predict climate change, and offers us the giddy realisation that we may not be alone in the Universe.
The Faculty of Science is ranked among the top 50 in the world for several subjects (Times Higher Education and QS). We have undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and courses that aim both to satisfy our students’ burning interest in science and to meet the need of society for competent science graduates.
Faculty of Law
The Faculty of Law at Lund University is a modern faculty with a clean international profile. We offer an environment which is suitable and welcoming for Swedish and international students, lecturers and researchers alike. Education, research and interaction with the surrounding community are the three mainstays of our work. The connection between these three mainstays is particularly apparent in the programmes and courses on offer, where students meet both researchers and professionally active lawyers with qualifications and experience from various areas of law.
The faculty's geographical location, in the heart of the Oresund region, brings unique opportunities for boundary-crossing cooperation in the surrounding area; at the same time we also have well developed contacts with different universities throughout the world. We have a large number of exchange agreements which make it possible for our students to study abroad within the framework of their degree programme, while law students from a host of other countries can study for one or several semesters at our faculty.
Faculty of Social Sciences
The Social Sciences consist of a number of disciplines which strive to understand people and human relationships in terms of structures and systems.
Most of the challenges of our time are the result of human activity and must be solved through societal processes. Scientists provide important contributions to identifying and explaining environmental problems, for example. Engineering and medicine can create
solutions for these problems. But implementing new ideas requires a combination of knowledge about and questioning of human behaviour and our social and political institutions.
Our researchers’ task is to make the functioning and dynamics of society comprehensible, thereby creating the opportunity to change and, in the best case, prevent the occurrence of problems. Education and research in the social and behavioural sciences generates knowledge and solutions that contribute to efficient social organisation, economic competitiveness and socially sustainable development
Faculty of Medicine
Our Faculty offers a wealth of research, postgraduate and undergraduate education programmes in medicine, nursing and health. The Faculty encompasses 2,800 full-time students enrolled in 8 degree programmes, as well as 1200 graduate students and 1800 employees.
We conduct a wide range of research, from experimental to applied, in order to answer questions related to clinical practice, health sciences and society.
The Faculty of Medicine and Region Skåne interact to strengthen developments in healthcare and clinically focused medical research in the region. The university and the healthcare system strive to work together to formulate new methods to prevent and combat disease. The Faculty educates tomorrow's healthcare personnel and much of this education takes place within the regional medical system.
Faculties of Humanities and Theology
The Faculties of Humanities and Theology offer a number of programmes and courses that are taught in English and in other languages. Most of the courses that are taught in English are at an advanced level, but the SAS-courses (Special Area Studies) and a certain number of other courses are available for undergraduate students.
The Humanities and Theology form one faculty area at Lund University. The area consists of eight departments and offers studies in subjects ranging from cultural sciences, history, philosophy, archaeology, languages and literature to theology and religious studies. A number of the subjects taught through the Faculties of Humanities and Theology have been part of the curriculum at Lund since the university was founded in 1666. Studies in these fields today are mostly individually designed, being combinations of independent courses. There are also fixed degree programmes.
School of Economics and Management
The School of Economics and Management is one of eight faculties within Lund University, and our activities cover education and research in business administration, business law, economic history, economics, informatics, and statistics, as well as research policy.
More than 4 000 students and 400 researchers, teachers and other staff members study and work at the School. The totals for Lund University is around 46 000 students and some 6 000 employees.
Lund University School of Economics and Management is an EQUIS accredited member of EFMD since 2001, having met the high standards of the European Quality Improvement System - EQUIS. In addition, Lund University is a member of the prestigious research-intensive university networks Universitas 21 and the League of European Research Universities (LERU).
Faculty of Fine & Performing Arts
The Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts in Malmö is a faculty of Lund University and includes the Art Academy, Academy of Music and Theatre Academy. These three academies all have their own identities, but also work together in many areas under the management and coordination of the faculty.
The activities of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts often result in public activities such as exhibitions, concerts, performances and much more. The faculty has many close international relationships, with collaborations, guest lectures, and student and staff exchanges, as well as international recruitment of both academic staff and students. Intercultural diversity and diversity of expression have a key role to play.
The Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts offers Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in fine art, music and theatre, as well as a number of courses of varying lengths.
There is also research and research studies in the fine and performing arts. Being part of Lund University brings many advantages, in particular within research, with an interdisciplinary perspective, internationalisation and quality assurance.
