Scandinavian Language, Literature, and Culture Courses in UO Study Abroad Programs

Some students who major or minor in Scandinavian complete part of their language course work in a UO-sponsored overseas study program in Scandinavia. This opportunity is particularly useful for students who wish to use Finnish as their primary Scandinavian language, because the UO is seldom able to offer a third year of this language on campus.

Some students also complete part of their Scandinavian literature and culture course work while studying in Scandinavia. Courses are available at various UO study sites in Scandinavia that can be applied toward the requirements for the Scandinavian major or minor.
