About Finnish Society & Culture
Masters degrees in Finnish Society & Culture offer advanced study of the social and cultural institutions, movements and traditions originating from, or associated with, Finland.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Scandinavian Studies and Nordic Studies. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Modern Languages, Literature, or Cultural Studies.
Courses in this field allow you to scrutinise a range of sociocultural, political and economic practices in Finland, and how prior occupations of the area have influenced their formation.
For example, you may explore how Finland’s fairly recent recognition as an independent state (1906), has had an impact on the concept of Finnish national identity, and the rise of Fennomania.
Similarly, you might observe the country’s adherence to the so-called ‘Nordic model’, whereby the welfare state is aimed specifically at enhancing individual autonomy and promoting social mobility.
Careers in this field may include roles in the public or private sectors, such as policy-making on behalf of Finnish government departments and regulatory bodies, academia and publishing, journalism, and or heritage management.
