Course summary

Denmark, Norway and Sweden have long had a considerable impact beyond the Nordic region and, today, Scandinavian languages and cultures continue to expand in popularity. The region's television, film and literature, in particular, attract global critical acclaim. This programme offers you the opportunity to study the English language alongside modern Danish, Norwegian or Swedish, as well as Scandinavian culture, past and present. You can also opt to study Scots language, which has its own rich linguistic and literary tradition. The study of English Language focuses on developing your knowledge and understanding of the principles of theoretical linguistics, the way we learn language, the regional and social variations of language in general - and of the English language in particular - and methods of communication. A highlight of this programme is the year abroad in Year 3, which you'll spend studying, teaching or working in a Scandinavian country.
