The University of Oregon Folklore Program is delighted to announce a new undergraduate Folklore program and additions to its graduate program.

1) Undergraduate major and minor degrees in Folklore Studies. The degrees will go into effect in Fall 2012, however, current students graduating Fall 2012 or after can begin working toward the requirements.

2) Two tracks in the Folklore Master’s program:

  • The General Folklore track provides students with a strong interdisciplinary foundation in Folklore while also allowing the flexibility for developing strengths in students’ areas of focus. In consultation with an advisor, students take designated courses from Folklore Program faculty across campus, representing multiple disciplines (Folklore, Anthropology, Arts and Administration, English, German, and Music), in addition to taking elective courses that strengthen students’ areas of expertise.

  • The Public Folklore Track is intended for those students preparing for work in the public sphere. The coursework will ensure that they have important professional skills (ethnographic research, documentation, administration, and programming) in addition to the scholarly foundations of folklore. The internship requirement provides them opportunities for developing professional skills as well as for establishing relationships within the field.

Information about the Master’s program can be found on

Information about the undergraduate degrees to be posted soon.
