Distance Learning

Did you know that you can study a Nordic language even if it’s NOT offered on your own UC campus? Since around 2000, the Department of Scandinavian at UC Berkeley has made that possible.

We’ve been spearheading a unique way of language teaching across the ten UC sister campuses by developing an innovative method of offering less commonly taught languages from a live class on one campus as a distance learning course to students on other UC campuses. Actually, Danish and Finnish from UC Berkeley were the first two languages within the UC System to offer language classes as a synchronous distance learning version.

Today, the majority of our language classes are offered in a hybrid format with in-person attendance at UC Berkeley and live stream to other campuses. More info and sign-up at UC Online: https://uconline.edu/
