Historia I är den första terminens studier i historia på lärarutbildningen vid Lunds universitet.

Du får en introduktion till historiedidaktiken och goda allmänna kunskaper i historia.

Kursens innehåll

Historia 1 handlar både om vad historia är som vetenskap, historiedidaktik och den historiska utvecklingen från forntid till nutid. Du studerar svensk, nordisk och europeisk historia med utblickar mot andra världsdelar och kulturer och globalhistoriska perspektiv.

Kursen inleds med en kurs i historiedidaktik och historia som vetenskap. Här lär du dig grunderna för hur historiker arbetar med källorna och hur historia förmedlas.

I de tre följande översiktskurserna får du bland annat läsa källmaterial från olika tidsperioder och får inblick i hur historieskrivning går till.


Kursen består av fyra delkurser:

  1. Att arbeta historievetenskapligt och historiedidaktiskt, 7,5 hp
  2. Forntiden, antiken och medeltiden, tiden fram till 1350, 7,5 hp
  3. Senmedeltid och tidigmodern tid, 1350–1850, 7,5 hp
  4. Modern tid, 1850–2000-talet, 7,5 hp

På kursen deltar du i föreläsningar och arbetar tillsammans med andra studenter i gruppövningar.


Historiska institutionen i Lund är en av landets största forskningsmiljöer i historia med forskning inom alla epoker från tidig medeltid till samtidshistoria. På Historia I undervisas du av framstående forskare.

Historiska institutionen finns i LUX, Lunds välutrustade humanist- och teologcentrum, med tillgång till modernt forskningsbibliotek, läsplatser och lunchrestaurang.

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 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.

Tuition Fees

Non-EU/EEA citizens

Citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. You pay one instalment of the tuition fee in advance of each semester.
