Options: Advanced Scandinavian translation; Nordic cinema (contextualising Dreyer, Bergman and Dogme 95); introduction to Old Norse; crime and small communities in Nordic literature; advanced Old Icelandic literature; sources for the Viking age.
The programme is delivered through a combination of seminars, lectures and reading and language classes. Student performance is assessed through written examination, coursework, and the dissertation.
