About Swedish Literature & Language
Masters degrees in Swedish Literature & Language equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the development, use and morphology of the Swedish language, and its representation in literature.
Related subjects include Scandinavian Studies and Comparative Literature. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as Modern Languages, Literature, or Cultural Studies.
The lingual and literary lies beyond the boundaries of Sweden alone. For example, being a language with equal legal standing in Finland, Swedish influences are visible across other parts of Scandinavia and Europe. As a result, opportunities for specialisations are broad in this field.
For example, you might wish to specialise in translation, learning to translate Sweden to and from other languages through an examination of various literatures.
Alternatively, you might choose to explore the ways in which Swedish language and literature has developed since its origins, from the first remnants of Old Swedish literature found in c.800 AD, to its prominence after the Swedish language was standardised in the 16th century.
Careers may include roles in academia and publishing, journalism, heritage management, or even public relations.
