Master’s Programme in Language Science with a Specialisation in Scandinavian Languages

  • 120 credits

The programme aims at extending and deepening your knowledge in Scandinavian Languages. It also strengthens your grasp of research methodology, research ethics and your ability to carry out scientific reasoning.

This specialisation of the Master’s Programme in Linguistics will deepen your knowledge of linguistics and Scandinavian Languages. You will choose the area and courses for your linguistic specialisation, connected to the Department’s actual, ongoing research. In addition, you will take the faculty-wide courses which are obligatory in the Linguistics programme.

Within the Master’s Programme in Language Science, the students will deepen and expand their knowledge in the field of the selected study route. The emphasis varies between specialisations, and may focus, for example, on pragmatics, language history, language documentation or grammar. Importance is also given to
the students’ development in terms of scientific approach, independent analysis, and skills in presenting their work orally as well as in writing.
