The Master Programme in Scandinavian Studies is for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Scandinavian Studies or the equivalent. It 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 you as a student a unique opportunity to pursue multidisciplinary studies of Scandinavian language, literature and culture, also in Sweden.
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 will prepare you for a number of different professions, e.g. translator, interpreter, and information officer.
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 PhD studies.
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).
