Description

I kursen behandlas olika delar av förlagets arbete, förlags- och bokmarknadskunskap och teoretiska perspektiv på bokmarknaden. Du kommer att lära dig praktiska saker såsom manusbearbetning, copyskrivande, bokdesign samt produktion av tryckt och digital bok. Du kommer även att få kunskaper och insikter i förlagets arbete med marknadsföring, marknadsanalys, förlagsekonomi och förlagsjuridik. Du kommer att arbeta med autentiska manus och exempel i uppgifter, workshops och seminarier och möta många gästlärare verksamma inom branschen. Under kursens gång kommer du att komma i kontakt med flera av bokmarknadens olika segment, exempelvis allmänlitteratur (både fack- och skönlitteratur), barnböcker och läromedel. Eftersom hela bokbranschen är i förändring finns inom kursen också viktiga avsnitt om produktion och spridning av digital utgivning, exempelvis e-böcker. Förutom praktiska uppgifter kommer du att lära dig använda kulturteoretiska perspektiv på bokmarknaden samt skriva en självständig uppsats.

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 universityadmissions.se. 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.
