Majors

Undergraduate Advisor: Kim Kraft

Our department offers courses leading to a B.A. degree in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, and Scandinavian Area Studies. For a degree in all of these majors, at least 65 credits - of which 35 must be upper division courses - must be earned. Many students in the Department earn double majors in which they combine a Scandinavian major with a second major in such fields as Political Science, History, Communications, Business Administration, English, International Studies, or Germanics, among others. This is possible without exceeding the minimum number of credits for graduation—180 quarter credits.
