Germany and Scandinavia boast some of the world’s most fascinating cultures, most beautiful landscapes, most advanced economies, and highest quality of life. At UO you can learn to speak, read, and write in German or Swedish, take courses ranging from Viking sagas to present-day literature and film, and chart your own path through the literature, history, philosophy, music, art, politics, and societies of Germany and Scandinavia—all under the personal mentorship of our professors.

Our degree programs pair very well with other majors and minors, and dozens of study abroad options allow you to earn credit toward your UO degree.
