Scandinavian Studies for Exchange Students
Scandinavian studies for exchange students at the University of Oslo cover area and language studies, and involve many academic disciplines: language, literature, ancient history, modern history, cultural studies and the social sciences.
The Scandinavian Studies for Exchange Students are given mainly from a Norwegian perspective, although many features of Norwegian life and society apply to all of the Scandinavian countries. You can study the Scandinavian welfare state models, gender equality and family structures, art history and visual studies, the two official forms of Norwegian and how they evolved. Even Old Norse literature is an option in certain semesters! Choosing Scandinavian Studies at the University of Oslo will give you the unique opportunity of combining your academic life with your cultural and social life through our Special Events programme, thus presenting you with an all-inclusive ‘Norwegian experience’. Two of the course groups are offered in the autumn semester and two are offered in the spring semester. Every course group gives 30 ECTS credits, the equivalent of one semester’s full-time study. If you stay in Norway for a full year, you can choose one course group in the autumn semester and one in the spring semester to give you a full-time study programme for one academic year.
