History

The programme Baltic Sea Region Studies was initiated by Imbi Sooman.

The first lecture dealing with topics concerning Baltic Sea Region Studies was a proseminar on Literature in the Baltic Sea area, and took place in the 2002 summer term. Since the 2004 winter term, the Department of Scandinavian Studies offers an introduction course to the Baltic Sea Region Studies, with Imbi Sooman as lecturer.

On a curricular level, Baltic Sea Region Studies has been present in the form of a Wahlfachmodul (48 credit hours) within the Diploma Study of Scandinavian Studies since the 2002 winter term.

In the course of the introduction of the undergraduate studies the range of teaching has been expanded. An Elective Module Baltic Sea Region Studies (Wahlmodul Ostseeraumstudien) (24 ECTS-credits) as part of the undergraduate studies has been established, yet students from other fields can attend courses in Baltic Sea Region Studies as well, in the framework of a Complementary Module Baltic Sea Region Studies (Erweiterungscurriculum Skandinavistik: Ostseeraumstudien) (15 ECTS-credits). In cooperation with the Department of Finno-Ugrian Studies a second Complementary Module (15 ECTS-credits) is scheduled.

In addition to the introductory proseminar, the Department of Scandinavian Studies offers proseminars, lectures, as well as language courses (Lithuanian, Latvian). Courses offered by the Department of Finno-Ugrian Studies (and concerning the Baltic Sea area) can be credited as well.
