Introduction to Finnish Language and Culture (15–30 credits)

If you take several language courses, you can complete a study unit out of them.

The study unit Introduction to Finnish language and culture (a 15 credit or a 30 credit unit) consists of different language courses (Finnish 2 – Finnish 6). The 30 credit unit will be completed by studies focusing on Finnish history, culture or society, according to what has been settled by the responsible teacher Sari Päivärinne. Contact her, if you want to get more information: sari.paivarinne(at)
