Bachelor’s in classical ballet

Brief course description

Norwegian part 2 will give the student information about Norwegian literature and culture, the language and society, cultural traditions and mass media. Through the language, a personal and cultural identity, an ethical and aesthetic sense and the ability to orientate oneself in the society will be developed. Norwegian part 2 is an oral and written course that includes knowledge about the language as a system and the language functioning through written and oral forms of text. Working with literature is of great importance, not only because literature is a major constituent of Norwegian cultural history, but also because reading has considerable significance in personal and linguistic development.

The course’s learning outcomes

On completing the course, the student should:

  • be able to express themselves clearly and precisely, both in writing and orally, show a capability to adapt content and use of the language according to the context involved and correct use of grammar and stylistics.
  • master different verbal roles in group conversations and discussions, presentations and lectures as an active participant and listener.
  • master basic elements of text analysis and know the most important genres in fictional and nonfictional literature and be able to write different kinds of texts.
  • know the main lineage of Norwegian language history.
  • be able to explain multilingualism and comment on linguistic change as a result of the interaction between different languages in the past and in the present.
  • be able to analyse and describe complex texts like theatre, film, photography and advertisements.
  • be able to develop, build up, change and complete a text and use this knowledge in their own writing.

Teaching and learning methods

The course consists of teacher-led classes, coaching and independent study. Usually, lessons and lectures will be conducted mainly by teachers. The course also requires independent study, projects and written work.

Tuition is tailored to the overall progress being made by each group during the course, relative to the learning objectives of the course and according to each group's composition.

In Norwegian part 2 there will be regular tuition, but less during periods of demonstration and performance work.

The coursework requirements are:

  • mandatory attendance and participation in classes.
  • submission of all assignments.


Coursework requirements must have been met for the student to receive a final assessment in the course.

During the course, the students work and development will be assessed in relation to the course's learning objectives. The course is assessed by the person with course responsibility.

The course is assessed on a scale from “A” to “F”, where “E” is the lowest passing grade.
