Department of Finnish, Finno-Ugrian and Scandinavian Studies


Contact information:


The Department of Scandinavian Languages and Literature at the University of Helsinki is the only one in Finland combining teaching and research of Scandinavian languages and literature in the same unit. The Department offers a wide selection of undergraduate courses, trains researchers and produces new research findings to answer the needs of the Finland-Swedish and Finnish society as well as international linguistics.

The Department has two degree programmes: Scandinavian Languages and Scandinavian Literature. The former programme caters both for students studying Swedish as their mother tongue and students studying Swedish as a second language. In addition, there is a programme designed for students focusing on the other three Nordic languages, Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic. The studies in Scandinavian Literature concentrate mainly on Swedish and Finland-Swedish literature, but it is also possible to focus on literature written in the other Nordic languages - Danish, Norwegian and Icelandic - or on other kinds of European literature.
