Please see the University Course Catalog and the current BYU Course Schedule (Humanities: Comparative Arts & Letters) for more information. 

Students in a Scandinavian language 321 course, who have not taken 100-200 level classes in that language because of prior experience, can take the Challenge Exam to gain credit for lower-level language courses. 

A number of the Scandinavian courses are taught through the BYU Evening School and are also open for enrollment by non-BYU students.
