Iranian Languages 2022/2023

About the Subject

The Iranian languages represent a different branch in the same family of languages where we find Swedish and English, the Indo-European languages. They are spoken not only in Iran, but also in Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Pakistan and several other countries in Central Asia and the Middle East.

For the levels of our first cycle courses, students choose to focus primarily on Persian, Kurdish or Balochi, supplementing their main subject by choosing from an array of electives. The advanced level, which includes a degree paper, is in the major subject of Iranian Languages and prepares students for second cycle courses in Iranian languages.
