Students of Scandinavian studies investigate the diverse cultures of the north from the early Middle Ages to the present. The main emphasis of the course of study is on the Scandinavian languages and literatures. Beginning students are not required to possess skills in a Scandinavian language; they have the option of learning Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian, and Swedish during the course of study. In contrast to the major field program, students pursuing a minor in Scandinavian studies select only one of these languages to specialize in. In addition to language skills, students of Scandinavian studies acquire the ability to consider texts, media, and cultural phenomena from a historical perspective and understand, evaluate, and interpret them.

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
