The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies is offered by the Department of Literature and the Department of Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University. Scandinavian Studies is well established as an academic field abroad, e.g. in Germany and North America, and the Master’s programme at Uppsala University now gives students a unique opportunity to pursue multidisciplinary studies of Scandinavian language, literature and culture, also in Sweden.

The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies offers two degrees: the degree of Master of Arts (60 credits), and degree of Master of Arts (120 credits).

The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies promotes contacts within the rich network of institutions of Scandinavian Studies in Europe and North America. It is our ambition that students apply for exchange studies during at least one semester. The programme provides a firm ground for doctoral studies, but also good career possibilities within the field of cul­tural communication. A Master’s degree in Scandinavian Studies opens up for a number of different professions, e.g. trans­lator, interpreter, and information officer.

Career

The programme opens for career possibilities within the area of cultural communication, e.g. as translator, interpreter, or information officer within government administration as well as in organisations and international companies. The programme also opens career paths in compulsory and upper-secondary schools (language teacher), and for Ph.D. studies.

Degree

The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Scandinavian Studies as the main field of study.

After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Arts (60 credits).

During the first semester, two compulsory courses are studied. The programme begins with an advanced introduction to Scandinavian languages and literature, where students meet faculty from both the Department of Literature and the Department of Scandinavian Languages. Also compulsory during the first semester is a course in theory and method. You will also begin writing your degree project.

During the second semester, students take the compulsory course Sung, Said, Written: Swedish Cultural Expressions from 1600 to the Present. They also have the opportunity to study Swedish 18th-Century Culture from a European Perspective, and two electives from either the Faculty of Humanities or the Faculty of Language. During the second year, students take courses like Cinematic Adaptations of Scandinavian Literature, and Academic Writing in Swedish. The second year also contains free electives from both faculties, as well as the possibility for students to apply for an internship.
