Scandinavian Studies

The BYU Scandinavian Studies program is an interdisciplinary academic program teaching the cultures and languages of the Nordic region. Students taking classes in the program develop analytic and writing skill that complement any major. They benefit from small class sizes, engaging topics, and even the availability of scholarship money. Many of the Scandinavian classes fulfill GE requirements and most are taught in English translation. Beginning and advanced language classes include Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish. Students interested in pursuing an academic program can either minor in Scandinavian Studies or do Scandinavian Studies as an area of emphasis within the European Studies, Interdisciplinary Humanities, or Comparative Literature major programs.
