Course summary

The languages, history, politics and culture of the Scandinavian countries have long had a considerable impact beyond the Nordic region. This programme enables you to study one or more Scandinavian languages in the context of literature, culture and society, and alongside issues such as:* the distribution of welfare and wellbeing within societies * the policies which influence that distribution**Scandinavian Studies**Edinburgh is the only university in Scotland, and one of only two in the UK, to offer undergraduate honours programmes in Scandinavian Studies.Home of the Northern Scholars programme, the University has an excellent reputation for research and teaching in this area. Over the course of your four-year programme, you'll specialise in the modern language of either Denmark, Norway or Sweden. Whichever you choose, you'll also gain an understanding of the other two, as well as of Scandinavian literature and culture, past and present. You will spend Year 3 studying, teaching or working in a Scandinavian country.**Social Policy**Social Policy at the University of Edinburgh will enable you to engage with confidence in many of the political debates of our time. Our programme will equip you with the knowledge to understand how policies affect society and the economy, but it will also enable you to critically assess how policies are made and what actors and processes influence the policymaking process. We work closely with:* governments* NGOs* third sector and interest representation groups* international organisations and other external actorsInternational comparative analyses are one of our main strengths, and we place a strong emphasis on providing our students with empirical research skills, so that they can become critical researchers themselves.
