The University of Washington’s Swedish Studies Program is one of the two best in the world, according to the Swedish Institute in Stockholm.

This award recognizes the UW Swedish program’s outstanding efforts in promoting the Swedish language and culture outside of Sweden. The program provides “American students the opportunity to pursue in-depth studies in Swedish society and culture within their (collegiate) majors.”

Particularly cited were UW Associate Professor Lotta Gavel Adams and Senior Lecturer Ia Dübois, both Swedish specialists on the faculty.
