The German and Scandinavian Studies program of the University of Oregon is a great choice for students interested in German and Scandinavian culture and history. Faculty members from the humanities, music, and social sciences who share a common interest in German and Scandinavian culture, letters, history, and society administer this program.


The influence of German and Scandinavian culture and letters on modern life is incalculable. In philosophy and religion; in sociology and psychology; in music; law; political science; and history, German-speaking thinkers have helped define our perception of the world.

The German and Scandinavian Studies program of the University of Oregon is an interdisciplinary program offering undergraduates the opportunity to study these influences in context with the society and cultures that produced them. It combines advanced language training with an interdisciplinary program of literature courses offered in the Department of German and Scandinavian.

Career Opportunities

German and Scandinavian heritage permeates Western society, particularly in the areas of classical music, literature, science, philosophy, and theology. There are many useful applications for a working knowledge of German and Scandinavian languages.

Recent graduates of the department have applied successfully to schools of law and business. Students can also pursue careers in teaching, tourism, international business, and government or foreign service. Many universities look favorably on applicants with degrees in German and Scandinavian, and alumni pursue graduate degrees in nationally prominent programs in German, Scandinavian, linguistics, history, and comparative literature.
