In General Teacher Education 5–10 classroom management is an important topic in addition to competence in school subject, didactics and pedagogy. In addition to conveying knowledge you are a conflic solver and a motivator. 

To analyse and assess working processes and giving feedback that leads to further learning is also a part of your workday, the same goes for communications with the pupil's home, educational and psychological counselling service and other colleagues. 

This study's compulsory subjects consist of Pedagogy and Teacher Education (60 credits). The compulsory subjects are taken during your first four years of your course of study. In the first year of your study you have the opportunity to choose an elective course offered as a major. In the last two years of the course of study you major in one of our ten programme options; Norwegian, Mathematics, English, Natural Science, Social Science, Christian and Other Religious and Ethical Education, Music, Special Needs Education or Professional Education. 

Supervised professional training in the primary and lower secondary school is an essential part of the education.
