Graduate Study in Scandinavian is intended to prepare students for careers in which an advanced knowledge of the history, culture and languages of Scandinavia are necessary. The Ph.D. in Germanic Languages and Literatures with a Scandinavian emphasis is intended for students who would like to pursue a career in academia. The graduate programs are rigorous, in-depth endeavors that presuppose a significant background in Scandinavian languages and literatures. Students are mentored along the way, and individual goals are taken into consideration as the student progresses through the curriculum. The Scandinavian Section offers an M.A. (Master of Arts) degree in Scandinavian, and a Ph.D. in conjunction with the Ph.D. in Germanic Literatures and Languages. In the Ph.D. program, Scandinavian can be taken as either a major or minor field.
