Icelandic Studies for international students
The School of Humanities has a great deal to offer both exchange and regular international students. Among the main attractions is the BA-programme in Icelandic as a second language and the MA-degree in Medieval Icelandic Studies (taught in English).
Icelandic as a second language comprises two main sections: a language component, where students receive instruction and training in writing, speaking and understanding modern Icelandic, and a cultural component, which deals with the language, literature and history of Iceland.
Medieval Icelandic Studies is aimed at providing postgraduate students with the necessary tools to study Old/Medieval Icelandic texts in the original and in their manuscript context, with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary study.
