Welcome to the Department of Languages and Literatures!

The Department of Languages and Literatures offers education within language subjects at three levels: basic level, advanced level and research level.

Our education is oriented towards you who are interested in language and literature and there are courses that meet your needs whether you are aiming to learn a new language from scratch or want to continue your studies from secondary school.

The courses at the basic level comprise, among other, language proficiency, linguistics, comparative literature and culture and area studies. At the higher levels, the content gradually reaches greater depth and becomes more specialised.

Since we are a language department, we naturally have a lot of contacts with universities in other conutries and offer our students various possibilities of studying abroad.

We also have courses within teacher training and translators' programmes. Moreover, we offer competence development for those professionals who wish to develop their language skills further.

If you click on the link, you will find out more about what it is like to be a student at the department. You can also contact our study and career counsellors.

On the open pages of GUL (University of Gothenburg's learning management system) you will find schedules, literature lists, syllabi and other information on our courses (link to GUL).
