Welcome to the Norwegian Program at the University of North Dakota! Thank you for visiting our page and learning more about our program. Norwegian classes at UND allow for one-on-one learning, giving students the opportunity to work closely with faculty. As a bonus, speakers fluent in Norwegian can generally read and understand Swedish and Danish with little difficulty, increasing understanding and appreciation for the entire Nordic region. Hot research fields in Norway include petroleum studies, renewable energy, computing, marine biology and fisheries, shipping, arctic research, peace research, architecture, design, and gender studies.
Learn Norwegian ONLINE
January 2011 marked the inaugural launch of our online beginning Norwegian course, NORW 101. The entire first year will be offered online 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 increasing 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. Asynchronous courses that can fit with any schedule, we use a textbook geared for American language learners.
NB! Registration for Fall 2014 online courses is now open.
