This spring, the UND Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures launched an online Norwegian language program. These beginner Norwegian courses are the only university-based, online, for-credit classes available in North America. Consequently, current enrollment in NORW 101 has attracted students from across the United States and Canada.

These online opportunities set the UND Norwegian program apart from other universities in the U.S. The goal is to “connect Scandinavian-American heritage to contemporary Norway within the community and campus,” said Dr. Melissa Gjellstad, Assistant Professor of Languages – Norwegian. “Our program enables UND to reach broadly outside the Red River Valley and allows North Dakotans and others the opportunity to connect Norwegian heritage with the language, culture, and society of Scandinavia today.”Learn more information or enroll in the 2011-12 Norwegian online courses.
