Norwegian 3, Advanced Programme
30 ECTS credits - 1 Semesters semester - Kristiansand
Approved Norwegian 1 and a minimum of 15 study points in Norwegian 2.
Norwegian 3 provides students with a
specialisation in Nordic Language and Literature and increases
the knowledge the general teacher education student has
received in Norwegian as an educational subject as well as
aesthetic and linguistic subjects through the obligatory
Norwegian subject in the general teacher education programme
and through study of the topic in Norwegian 2. These courses
may either be an extension of previously completed coursework,
or they may assume a more independent profile. The Nordic
perspective will be more strongly emphasised in Norwegian
Norwegian 3 (30 study points) must be taken as a full-time study programme during spring semester. The programme is organised into three 10-sp courses with individual examinations required for each course.
The course NO-205(Nordic Languages and Instruction in Neighbour Languages)is compulsory.
Further students must choose to other elective courses among the supplementary courses.
Arrangements for the recognition of prior learning are described in the information on the institution under "General arrangements for the recognition of prior learning (formal, informal and non-formal)".
For a description of the examination regulations, see the Examination Regulations of the University of Agder.
For information about the Norwegian grading system, see ECTS credits and grades. Specific information on grading for each course is found in the individual course descriptions.
The Examination Regulations of the University of Agder regulate the graduation requirements for each programme of study.
Elective courses, choose 20 ECTS credits from the following:
LIT201-2 Trauma Theory
and Literature (10 credits)
NO-207-1 Subject area in Nordic Language (10 credits)
NO-208-1 Subject area in Nordic Literature (10 credits)
After having completed the study programme´s three courses, students will have further developed their academic and didactic knowledge and skill level. They will increase their own ability for reflection on oral and written use of the language in various communicative situations both in school and diverse media formats.
Lectures and seminars.
Students taking Norwegian 3 as a component of the third year of the general teacher education programme must complete an obligatory two-week practice period. The practice will be included as a component of NO-205. After having completed their practice period, students are required to write a practice report which must receive approval before they will be allowed to sit the final examination in this course. Students taking Norwegian 3 as a component of the fourth year of the general teacher education programme must write a didactic/practice-oriented research and development paper in NO-205.
Other students in NO-205 write a thesis on an academic topic.
Upon assessment in the three courses, emphasis will be placed on subject knowledge and the ability to apply this knowledge through problem-solving, the ability to reflect on academic instruction and the presentation format used for this. The three courses comprising Norwegian 3 have different assessment forms (see course descriptions). All the courses are assessed with differentiated grades. On the diploma regarding Norwegian 3, the grade for the three courses has equal value.
If Norwegian 2 and Norwegian 3 are taken during the third year of the general teacher education programme, the student may begin upon the first year of the Master´s degree programme during the fourth academic year and thereafter receive a Master´s degree after a five-year study period. Having either Norwegian 3 or a Master´s degree awards students with a solid academic basis for becoming a Norwegian teacher or for working with Norwegian and linguistic knowledge in other professional contexts.
