Course content

A one-year taught MLitt (or two years part-time) in Scandinavian Studies. The MLitt will appeal to students interested in the history, language and culture of the Scandinavian-speaking peoples, and particularly to those who wish to gain an interdisciplinary insight to this field of research.

The programme offers training and thematic courses as well as specialist supervision for a 15,000 word dissertation of the students' own choice. It is suited for students seeking to continue with postgraduate study as well as those simply interested to learn more.

Basic Training courses offer training on research theories and methodology. Language and Literary Courses provide training in specialist skills.

You are then required to write a 15,000 word dissertation (worth 60 credits) during the summer. This will be supervised by the member of staff who is best equipped to advise on your chosen dissertation topic.A one-year taught MLitt (or two years part-time) in Scandinavian Studies.
