Scandinavian Language Courses
Beginning and intermediate language classes are offered in Fall semesters with continuation courses offered in Winter. Returned missionaries and those with equivalent linguistic experience typically begin at 321 in Fall semester.
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.
