Third Year Swedish builds on the knowledge of Sweden and the Swedish language acquired during the first and second year courses. Students expand their knowledge about Sweden by reading and discussing fictional and non-fictional texts as well as watching movies. They write weekly response papers and one essay-length paper which is also presented in class.

In third year Swedish, students explore a defined time period and/or topic through literature and movies as well as other texts. The theme of the course rotates depending on other course offerings in the Scandinavian program, as well as students' interest. Examples for course themes are: "Swedish Working-Class Literature," "Women Writers," "Crime and Literature," "Children's and Youth Literature," "Sweden and Migration," and "Swedish Identity." Students will develop their reading, interpretive, and analytical skills by reading, discussing and writing about texts — both excerpts and complete works of literature — in Swedish as well as movies relevant to the topic.

Course Requirements:

Active class participation, essays, homework, and oral presentations. Below follows a list of potential course offerings for SWEDISH 325. Students enrolled in this class will be asked to write weekly response papers in response to the readings and discussions. Students are required to write one extensive paper (10 pages) in Swedish. This paper will be workshopped during the course of the semester; it will also be the subject of an oral presentation in class. Active class participation is indispensable for doing well in this class.

Intended Audience:

Course is required of students who have declared a minor in Scandinavian Studies. Open for students who have tested out of SWEDISH 234.

Class Format:

4 hours per week, recitation format.
