Semester 3: Elective courses

30 credits

Students can choose between elective courses or an internship for their third semester. Elective courses can be taken at Lund University or any other recognized university in Sweden or abroad.

The courses are chosen with the approval of the programme coordinator and should enable students to tailor the programme to suit their particular interests and to develop their specialisation within the field of sociology of law.

Elective courses

Tailor your programme

The elective courses enable you to tailor the programme to suit your particular interests. However, the courses you choose must be 1) offered at master’s levels and 2) related to the central themes and concerns of the sociology of law.

The courses (30 credits) are chosen with the approval of the programme manager.

Study abroad

A research and education cooperation between Lund University and universities in Spain, Norway and Denmark, also enables more choice and possibilities for you as a student studying Sociology of Law.

Our students will be able to choose from several of the collaborating universities' online courses.

Elective courses at the Sociology of Law Department

Elective courses at Graduate School

There are as a rule few places available on most of the Graduate School's courses. Some will run on the same days and at the same time. When choosing more than one of their courses, contact the Graduate School to ensure they do not clash.
