Masters degrees in Norwegian Literature & Language equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the morphology of and usage of the Norwegian language, and its representation in literature.
Related subjects include Scandinavian Studies and European Leagues. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Modern Languages, Literature, or Cultural Studies.
Courses in this field are highly diverse, and offer a range of specialisms for you to choose from. It is possible for you to study either just the Norwegian language, or the literature of Norway individually. As such, research opportunities are broad for this subject.
For example, you might choose to focus solely on the morphology of the Norwegian language, and compare its mutual intelligibility with the Swedish and Danish Languages.
Alternatively, you could explore how colonialism had an effect on the literary traditions of Norway, as Danish was the standard written language of Norway from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
Careers may include traditional roles in academia and publishing, with other opportunities possibly including heritage management, journalism, or even literary translation.
