Course Introduction

The four-year BA Russian and Swedish is a joint honours programme split equally between your two languages. You will take modules not only in language (speaking, listening, reading, writing and translation) but also in cultural topics including literature, history, film, linguistics, politics and other relevant field designed to complement your language learning. With a wide variety of modules on offer, you will be able to tailor your modern languages degree to your areas of interest.

You will spend a Year Abroad in the third year, split between two countries where your languages are spoken.

Knowledge of Russian gives you direct access to a fascinating cultural and historical tradition, helps you understand the evolution of Russian philosophical and ideological trends, and brings you closer to one of the world’s most dynamic geopolitical regions. We are one of the largest Russian departments in the UK and studying this language at SSEES (UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies) cultivates a high proficiency in Russian language and develops your skills in analysis, presentation, problem-solving and intercultural understanding.

As well as learning Swedish language (reading, writing, listening, speaking and translation) you will also take modules in linguistics and from a range of cultural options from the Scandinavian Studies Department.

As the oldest Department of Scandinavian Studies in the UK, we offer a wide range of modules related to the Nordic world, from Scandinavian crime fiction to Viking poetry, from film and media studies to Nordic politics.

UCL is ranked 3rd in the UK for Modern Languages in the 2018 QS World Rankings and offers outstanding opportunities to language students and graduates.
