About us

The Department of Languages and Literatures comprises all the languages taught at the Faculty of Arts, with the exception of Swedish and the other Nordic languages. We offer courses and pursue research in the major European languages as well as in languages that are more distant from a geographical and historical point of view – altogether 13 different languages. It is not only language that is the object of our courses and our research, but also the literatures and cultures that the language in question is part of. We are located on the 4th floor in Humanisten, Renströmsgatan 6.
