General Studies

General Studies Program

Danielsen Videregående Skole offers General Studies programs on levels VG1, VG2 and VG3.

In the General Studies program area, you can choose to take the common core subjects, or you can choose one of our special study programs: a Reasearch Program focusing on natural sciences and mathematics.

Supplementary Studies

You can also take a supplementary course to obtain general university and college admission certification after two years of vocational studies. Read more about Health, Childhood and Youth Development here.

A Range of different Programs

The school has five General Studies forms for each level. In this way, we are able to offer the students a comprehensive and varied range of program subjects.

Sister Schools in the US

Every year, up to 30 Danielsen students go to the United States to spend their VG2 year at one of our sister schools. Danielsen Videregående Skole collaborates with two schools in the United States:

Hillcrest Lutheran Academy
Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy

Research Program

Danielsen Videregående Skole offers a Research Program for students, which is available from VG1 on. The Research Program focuses on mathematics, natural sciences and scientific method.

Mathematics R1 during VG1

The school offers the course Mathematics R1 at level VG1 for students who have completed Mathematics 1T during lower secondary school. This implies that a student can take Mathematics R2 during their VG2 year, and thus finish this course one year early. They are then free to study other subjects in more depth during their VG3 year, and perhaps take University courses in collaboration with the University of Bergen.
