Intro to Scandinavia

Get to know the language, the culture and history.

At the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology we  offer a number of courses that are taught in English. Most of these are at an advanced level, but the SAS-courses (Special Area Studies) and a certain number of other courses are available for undergraduate students.
