Humanities

 

The Faculty of Humanities of the University of Oulu is the northernmost Faculty of Humanities in Finland, providing teaching and research in practically all the academic disciplines concerned with achievements in the humanities: cultural studies, history, literature, language and linguistics, including logopedics. The Faculty offers a wide variety of subjects (about 40), of which 13 lead to graduation in the field. The main subjects in the Faculty are Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology, English, German and Nordic Philology, Finnish Language, History, Information Studies, Literature, and Logopedics. In addition to these, three subjects have the only professorial chair in Finland, namely the History of Science and Ideas as well as Saami (Lappish) Language and Saami Culture, which are organized in the Giellagas Institute. Furthermore, there is a Master’s Degree Programme in Science Communication (TIEMA) in the Faculty.


Education in the Faculty is learning-centred, of a high standard and capable of constant development, where the active role of the students is also emphasised. In many fields of study, the students can construct up their degree relatively free, depending on where their interests lie. The aim of the education is to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge in order to become experts in the fields of language, culture and history, and to ensure that the degree meets the demands of the work market.
