We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Norwegian Society & Culture explore the cultural traditions, social institutions and economic practices originating from, or associated with, Norway.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Scandinavian Studies and Nordic Studies. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as History, Languages and Literature, or Cultural Studies.
As a part of the Scandinavian family, Norwegian culture shares many attributes with the Danish and Swedish cultures. However, there is also a strong sense of nationalism within Norway, which makes this country an interesting source for research.
For example, Norway is renowned for harsh climates which has impacted the cultural traditions of Norway, with agriculture having been the predominant industry prior to the Industrial Revolution. Within this, you might scrutinise how loss of land effected the social institutions within the country, or the ways in which prior farming practices continue to have an influence on culinary traditions today.
Careers in this field may include roles in heritage management, for example within museums or national landmarks. You might also branch into academia and publishing, or the media such as journalism.
