Department of Languages and Literatures

Our department comprises all the languages taught at the Faculty of Arts, with the exception of Swedish and the other Nordic languages.

We offer courses and pursue research in the major European languages as well as in languages that are more distant from a geographical and historical point of view.

It is not only language that is the object of our courses and our research, but also the literatures and cultures that the language in question is part of.

We offer independent courses at undergraduate and master levels in the different languages as well as doctoral studies in most of these. However, African languages, with the exception of Somali, are studied only at the doctoral level.

A number of the languages are part of various programmes: teacher education, the Master programme in Business and Economics, the translator programme, etc.

We also offer a number of web-based courses and distance courses.

Temporarily closed for visits

The Department of Languages ​​and Literatures has temporarily suspended visiting hours and drop-ins for the student office and for study guidance. For contact, please refer to telephone and / or e-mail. It is possible to book a virtual meeting with a study councellor via Zoom.
