What will you learn?

This study programme is philological and cross-disciplinary, especially toward area studies. The main frame is the practical knowledge of Norwegian language, in connection with linguistic disciplines (morphology, lexicology) and practical application. The conception of the study programme is to encompass the overview and address the details within Norwegian culture, literature, history, and contemporary development. Czech-Norwegian relations in different fields are an important part of the curricula. The most important aspect is the inclusion of Scandinavian, European, and bilateral dimensions. The highest value of this study programme is in the integration of education and individual growth, communication and experience.

“Studying Norwegian in Brno - it is a life style!
Nordic - a step in the right direction.”

Practical training

Practical training is obtained indirectly, through study stays abroad, through workshops arranged with Norwegian teachers, and in the form of occasional translating and interpreting (in groups or individually), often free enclosed to the study programme frame.
