A minor in Scandinavian adds depth to many other major courses of study, especially those with special stakes in Scandinavian material, such as Architecture, Environmental Design, Economics, History, Political Science, Comparative Literature, Film, and English. It is not necessary to study a Scandinavian language to minor in Scandinavian; all upper-division courses are taught in English with texts in translation and are easily accessible to students with general interests in Scandinavian culture.
The requirements include five upper-division electives of the student’s choosing.
You must declare your minor no later than the semester before your Expected Graduation Term (EGT). If the semester before EGT is fall or spring, the deadline is the last day of RRR week. If the semester before EGT is summer, the deadline is the final Friday of Summer Sessions. See the College of Letters & Science Minors page for the Minor Completion Form.
Students with credit from EAP courses in Denmark and Sweden should consult with the Faculty Undergraduate Adviser for help in determining requirement equivalencies.
