Norwegian Sign Language Education
Do you have a programme of professional study? Or do you want to combine Norwegian sign language with other subjects? This one-year programme give you a solid fundation in Norway's most exotic minority language. The teaching is practical, fun and highly visual.
This programme of study is for you who want to learn and communicate in sign language. You get a practical and theoretical introduction to Norwegian sign language - a visual minority language with its own grammar. It differs from other countries' sign language in the same way the spoken languages are different.
As a sign language interpreter you simplify the communication between the deaf and the hearing, you also contribute to equal opportunities and participation in the society.
You have to meet the Norwegian language requirements, or have a Scandinavian language as your mother tongue, if you want to apply to any of NTNU's degree programmes. You also must meet the basic requirement for admission, and demonstrate that you meet the English language requirements.
The application deadline for the programme is March 1st for students with an international degree, and April 15th for Norwegian and Nordic degree students. Students apply through Samordna Opptak.
