Nordic Perspective on European History

Nordic Perspective on European History, 25 credits

The Nordic Perspective on European History is a history programme specialising in the historical development of Northern Europe.  The programme is especially designed for exchange students.

The programme offers an opportunity to understand European history via the prism of northern Europe and enables the students to understand the specific historical and cultural features of Finland, Scandinavia and the Baltic region. 

The programme illuminates the importance of the centre-periphery interaction in European history, the role of Russia and how they have shaped northern Europe and the Baltic Sea region.

The studies are to be completed primarily by taking book examinations and/or as written assignments. Edge 1 can alternatively be completed by doing a research paper in the Finnish History Seminar. It is also possible to complete other parts of Nordic Perspectives on European history by doing research papers in the Finnish History Seminar. These alternative arrangements should be agreed with the person in charge of the teaching.
