Norwegian part 3

Bachelor’s in classical ballet

Brief course description

Norwegian part 3 will give the student information about Norwegian literature and culture, the language and the 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 3 is an oral and written course that includes knowledge about the language as a system and the language functioning through written and verbal 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 with clarity and precision, both in writing and verbally and adapt the content and use of language to personal expression using correct grammar and style.
  • master different, verbal roles in group conversations and discussions, presentations and lectures as an active participant and listener.
  • understand the basic elements of text analysis and know the most important genres in fiction and non-fiction literature and be able write different kinds of texts.
  • know the primary lineage of Norwegian language history.
  • be able to explain multilingualism and account for linguistic change as a consequence of the interaction between different languages, now and in the past.
  • be able to analyse and describe the complex texts found in theatre, film, photograph and commercials.
  • develop, build up, alter and complete a text and use this knowledge in their own writing.

Teaching and learning methods

The course consists of teacher-led lessons, coaching and independent study. Classes and lectures will, as a rule, be given by teachers. The course also demands a high level of personal study, projects and written work.

Tuition may take place in groups of varying size. Classes are related to the learning objectives of the course, the progress being made by each group and according to each group's composition.

There will be continuous lessons but fewer in periods of presentation and performance work.

The coursework requirements are:

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


Work requirements must be approved in order for the student to receive a final assessment of the course.

Students' work and development will be assessed during the course, relative to the learning objectives. The final, written assignment will be assessed by two examiners, of which one is the course coordinator and the other is an external examiner.

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