Master's Programme in Humanitarian Action and Conflict

Prog.code: RHA2N 60 c.

Welcome to the 2020/21 Master’s in Humanitarian Action and Conflict!

Campus or online teaching? In view of the coronvirus pandemic, you may be wondering whether teaching will be online or on campus: our department intends to offer campus teaching. We of course reserve the right to adapt our teaching methods in response to recommendations from the authorities, but that will be with your interests in mind. In the folder "Starter information" in the left-side menu, you will find a letter from the Vice-Chancellor regarding the return to campus teaching.

Is late application still possible? No, the programme is now closed for late application.

On the reserve list? If places become available we will contact the next candidate on the reserve list. We do not have a roll-call day.

Registration. Please confirm that you wish to keep your place by sending an e-mail to hac@teol.uu.se by 15 August at the latest. We ourselves will register you for the courses.

IT accounts. If you are already based in Sweden / have a Swedish ID number (personnummer), see here for information on activating your account.

Students from the first (international) round should have received separate instructions by e-mail.

Students with a conditional offer. Remember that you must show that you have successfully completed your undergraduate studies before programme start.

Schedule. Here is a draft schedule for your classes. Changes are possible. After “Introduction to Humanitarian Action”, you will be joined by students from another Master’s, the Master’s in International Humanitarian Action. You will notice that for most lessons, 2 rooms are quoted: that is in order to accommodate different group sizes.

Course syllabuses. Below you will find links to the autumn course syllabuses. You will also see a tab for reading, which often refers to a compendium of articles: in many cases, lecturers work with literature online. You will be given more information in a course guide before each course.

Introduction to Humanitarian ActionAnthropology and Intercultural Aspects of Humanitarian Action - World Politics and Humanitarian Action - Legal Dimensions of Humanitarian Action - Public Health in Humanitarian Action - Management

Programme guide. In the folder "Starter information" in the left-side menu you will find a general guide to the programme and getting settled in Uppsala. It is written with international students in mind but those based in Sweden should of course also look through it.

Checklist. Also in the folder "Starter information" is a checklist of things to do / think about when you first come to Uppsala. It is written with international students in mind, but there are relevant points for students based in Sweden too.

Basic Swedish courses. Interested in taking a Basic Swedish course? See here for more information and an application form. Application open between 3 and 24 August.  

Looking for a room? The Uppsala University Housing Office may have rooms left, and if so you are welcome to apply. See here for more information and the housing application form (scroll down for the English version).

Withdrawing from the programme. We hope to see you all in the autumn, but sometimes plans change! If you decide to withdraw, please cancel your place in University Admissions and mail hac@teol.uu.se so that someone else has the chance of a place. If you have received a room through Housing Office, remember too to cancel the room no later than a month before the contract is due to start.

Questions? The programme director is Dr Lars Löfquist and during the programme you may be in contact with several administrators, including Majlinda and Cameron. If you have any programme-related questions, please mail hac@teol.uu.se.
