XKIE0200 LANGUAGES AND CULTURES (25 ECTS)
Languages and Cultures (25 ECTS) is an attractive minor subject solution, if you wish to diversify your language and culture skills and to prepare yourself for today's international work environments.
The courses are divided in two modules: languages and cultures. Each module comprises 12–13 ECTS, so that an even split between language and culture will be achieved.
Module 1: Languages (12–13 ECTS)
You may study at least two (2) but no more than four (4) languages.
As for beginner's courses (CEFR A1-A2), you may not complete more than 6 ECTS credits.

- Finnish students: courses in Finnish, Swedish or English
- International students: courses in the student's own native language or in English.
Module 2: Cultures (12–13 ECTS)
