Welcome to the Norwegian Program at the University of North Dakota! Thank you for visiting and learning more about our program. Norwegian classes at UND allow for one-on-one learning, giving students the opportunity to work closely with our faculty. Speakers fluent in Norwegian can generally read and understand Swedish and Danish with little difficulty, increasing understanding and appreciation for the entire Nordic region. Cutting edge research fields in Norway include petroleum studies, renewable energy, computing, marine biology and fisheries, shipping, arctic research, peace research, architecture, design, and gender studies. Why not add the language to deepen your academic experience?
Learn Norwegian ONLINE
Since our inaugural launch in January 2011, our online beginning Norwegian courses have been offered for distance learners in a two semester package of NORW 101 and 102. These introductory language courses provide students with the tools to use norsk as a listener, speaker, reader, and writer in everyday situations. In addition to the primary goal of building students’ knowledge of the Norwegian language, a second goal of the course is to strengthen students’ ability to assess, interpret, and discuss Norway on a global scale. Using a textbook geared for American language learners, our completely online and asynchronous courses can fit with any schedule.
Already a student at a university or college in North Dakota? You can also enroll in these UND classes. NDUS students can register for NORW 101 or 102 as a Collaborative Student - learn how!
NB! Registration for Fall 2016 is now closed. We will offer NORW 101 and 102 again in Spring 2017, so watch for register to open for those courses in November 2016.
