About

The Language, Culture and History - Scandinavian Studies MA from University College London (UCL) offers an intellectually exciting and flexible range of options focusing on Nordic culture in a global context.

Overview

No prior knowledge of a Nordic language is required, though students in the Language, Culture and History - Scandinavian Studies programme from University College London (UCL) can opt to consolidate their language or translation skills, or to start Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian or Swedish from scratch.

Learning outcomes

Optional modules include advanced translation skills, Nordic cinema, Nordic literature in global perspective, the transnational politics of the region, and material cultures as well as modules on Viking and medieval Scandinavia. 

Assessed modules are supplemented with workshops and a summer school providing opportunities for networking and career development in publishing, translation, film-making, and the heritage and creative sectors.

Careers

An MA in Scandinavian Studies offers prospects for employment in the private as well as in the public sector, whether in Scandinavia or in the English-speaking world.
