This study programme distinguishes itself from the ordinary Master's Degree Study Programme in Nordic Languages and Literature in that there is no requirement regarding the use of both official Norwegian language forms. Additionally, during the language assessment process, a certain amount of consideration is given to students' language background. While courses completed in the ordinary Master¿s Degree Study Programme in Nordic Languages and Literature at UiA will be approved as courses in the Master's Degree Study Programme in Nordic Languages and Literature for Foreign Students, this will not apply in the opposite case.
The study programme comprises 120 study points and is composed of the following:

Elective topical courses/ specializations
The elective topical courses are to represent three clearly separate disciplines in the subject. They may be freely chosen within Nordic literature or languages. Instruction is offered in both linguistic and literary courses each semester. It is also possible to have individual reading lists but they must be approved by a lecturer. The elective courses have different assessment methods, which will determine whether the specialization will be called 1, 2 or 3.
