Finnish Literature

Baltic-Finnic Languages

Finnish literature students study literary research, its various trends, theories and methods, and especially Finnish fiction and its history. Finnish literature prepares students for careers in fields that require a humanities education, and especially a knowledge of literature (e.g. in libraries, the media, the publishing sector, arts management), research work and to become subject teachers in Finnish language and literature.
Finnish literature is one of the three literature subjects (in addition to Nordic literature and comparative literature) at the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Arts.
