Course summary

French is a major world language, while the languages of the Scandinavian countries have had a considerable impact beyond the Nordic region. This programme enables you to study French and one (or more) of either Swedish, Danish or Norwegian in the context of the rich histories, literatures, cultures and societies of the countries in which they're spoken. We are the only university in Scotland, and one of only two in the UK, to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Scandinavian Studies. Through intense language training you have the opportunity to acquire near-native fluency, while gaining the broad cultural education prized by graduate employers. We can offer you a wide range of courses spanning the Middle Ages to the 21st century, including specialist options on literature, history and film taught by leading experts in their field. Uniquely in Scotland, studying at Edinburgh enables you to take a full year abroad as part of your four-year undergraduate programme, either studying, teaching or working. You'll therefore spend Year 3 in countries where French and Scandinavian languages are spoken. Another attractive characteristic of this programme is its flexibility. This means that in Years 1 and 2, you’ll choose option courses drawn from a broad list of disciplines in addition to your core subjects of French and Scandinavian Studies.
