Viking and Old Norse Studies at Aarhus University

The University of Aarhus is a major international centre for Viking and Old Norse Studies, sustaining a vibrant interdisciplinary milieu with frequent seminars and conferences.

Through the MA programme in Scandinavian Languages and Literature (School of Communication and Culture) we offer English-language summer schools, and a number of MA-courses in Old Norse literature and culture as well as in Viking Studies. All courses are offered as single courses, and can be combined according to individual interests. The faculty in Scandinavian Languages and Literature works closely together with and combines teaching with colleagues from history of religion, history and archaeology.
