Are there courses students MUST/SHOULD take their First Year?
- Potential concentrators who do not have previous background in Norwegian, should take NORW 111 and NORW 112 during their first year.
- Potential concentrators who have an interest in history (either that of Norwegian-America or that of the Nordic countries) should note that there are several History courses with a Nordic theme that are only open to first years. This includes HIST 111 and 169.
