About Danish Literature & Language
Masters degree in Danish Literature & Language equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the development of the lingual and literary traditions originating from, or associated with, Denmark.
Related subjects include Scandinavian Studies and Comparative Literature. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Modern Languages, Literature or Cultural Studies.
Courses in this field offer a range of specialisms and training opportunities for you to choose from.
For example, you might wish to explore the morphology of the Danish language, specialising for example in onomastics – the study of the origin, history and use of proper names.
Following on from this, you could examine the usage of the Danish language within literature, particularly after the 16th century Protestant reformation when Latin became less popular as a religious language and much literature was translated into Danish instead.
Similarly, you might opt to train in the techniques of translating Danish to and from other languages, or learn to teach Danish as a foreign language.
Careers may include roles in the private and public sectors, from journalism and publishing, to academia and even legislative positions in government.
