The Applied Cultural Analysis programme from Lund University aims to develop and deepen students' knowledge and skills within the field of applied cultural analysis.


The Applied Cultural Analysis programme from Lund University emphasises the use of ethnography and cultural analysis as a means of helping organisations and businesses as well as municipal and community-based actors to develop their services, products and public outreach programmes. The programme will strengthen students' theoretical and methodological skills in anthropology-based ethnography while developing advanced understanding of different organisational contexts, as well as the demands these place on project management, communications and product development. 

Via work placement, field projects and the Master's thesis, students will be able to develop and target their skills to the specialised field in which they wish to work after completing your studies. The programme works in close cooperation with a number of clients from both the public and private sectors and NGOs.

During the programme, you will collaborate with several external stakeholders and conduct a ten-week work placement.
