Faculty of Arts

The Faculty of Arts comprises four departments, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, Bildmuseet and three interdisciplinary units/research centres.

The major areas of activity are Language Studies, Culture Studies, History, Archaeology, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Literature, Art, Media Studies and teacher education in Creative Studies. In addition to research more closely bound to the individual subject areas, interdisciplinary research environments have also been developed focusing on such aspects as Northern studies, Gender studies and Ageing and living conditions.

Currently, the faculty offers thirteen undergraduate programmes and five master's programmes. However, most of the education offered are non-programme courses in around thirty linguistic and historical-philosophical subjects.
