Course summary

A Masters by Research (MScR) programme is ideal if you have a clear idea of the independent research you wish to undertake at masters level. One of the few centres for the study of modern Scandinavian languages in the UK, we can accommodate a wide range of research interests in the languages, literatures and cultures of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and other parts of the wider Nordic region.

Join our community and choose one of two MScR pathways: either completing two research assignments and a 15,000 word dissertation; or writing a longer dissertation of 30,000 words. On each pathway you’ll be guided by an experienced and well-published supervisor.

Our research expertise includes: 19th and 20th century literature; cultural relations and transfer; language history and dialectology; literary translation; onomastics; place and identity; Scottish–Scandinavian historical relations; Viking studies.

Training and support

Between the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC), the Careers Service and the Institute for Academic Development (IAD), you’ll find a further range of programmes and resources to help you develop your postgraduate skills, as well as having access to the University’s fantastic libraries, collections and worldwide strategic partnerships.

As part of our research community, you will be immersed in a world of knowledge exchange, with lots of opportunities to share ideas, learning and creative work. Activities range from regular seminar series in Scandinavian Studies and European Languages and Cultures (with talks by staff, research students and visiting speakers), and a yearly colloquium on mythology in the 21st century, to celebration of the major Scandinavian festivals, film screenings, and lectures by visiting Scandinavian authors and academics, including as part of the Northern Scholars series.
