Are you interested in why we humans are the way we are, and why we behave as we do? Learn about psychology as a science, in theory and practice.

Knowledge of one's own and others' behavior is useful regardless of future studies or occupation. It helps us understand how humans interact in groups, and that is where our main focus lies.

Psychology is a comprehensive field of study. We cover many topics throughout the year. Classroom lectures are complemented by practical assignments, projects, and group work. Additionally, we watch films and visit institutions and organizations to have varied school days.

here is a strong focus on creating a good environment and atmosphere in the classroom.

Freedom of choice and opportunity for specialization

You will have plenty of opportunities to delve into optional topics, if you wish. We have a class library for those who like to read. For those who prefer more active learning methods, action research or other projects may be more suitable.

This is your year, and we are concerned with your interests and desires. We begin the school year with an interest survey. This way, we choose the topics we will spend the most time on. You are involved in deciding the content of the courses.

"Blåtur" in Western Norway

Mandatory: Yes

Price: Included in course price

Duration: 2 dager

Towards the end of the school year, we go on a joint "blåtur" to an unknown place in Western Norway.

The term "blåtur" may not be that well known, but many people have been on a "blåtur" without knowing that's what it's called. A "blåtru"r is simply a surprise trip - where you join the trip, but have no idea where the trip will take you. A trip "out of the blue", if you will.

This is primarily a social trip that we take to have a nice end to the school year.

At the folk high school, you're allowed to be social and have fun together. Here, we have safe boundaries that allow you to be with friends and have fun.

Come along to Bergen

As a student at Fana Folk High School, you will become familiar with Bergen.

Bergen has a vibrant cultural scene. Throughout the year, we go to theater performances, exhibitions, and concerts.

The city also hosts a variety of festivals. During the school year, there are international film festivals, theater festivals, and music festivals in the city.

You also have time to explore the city on your own. Go to the cinema, stroll around and observe the city's life, go up to Fløyen or have a coffee at one of the cozy cafes.

Creative main subjects and many elective subjects

The school has many different main subjects. This creates a school environment with diversity and many different types of people.

You immerse yourself in the main subject with your class throughout the school year.

In addition, you choose from many exciting elective subjects. You choose elective subjects several times during the school year and can choose new subjects each time.

Safe and educational trips

We have a joint start-up trip at the beginning of the year. This is a cozy low-threshold trip that everyone participates in.

All the main subjects go on study trips. Some travel abroad and others stay in Norway. Our study trips combine academic content with social community on the trip.

Get to know Norwegian language and culture

During a year at a folk high school in Bergen, you will make Norwegian friends, learn some Norwegian, and get to know Norwegian culture and society.

Our language courses are suitable for beginners and students with som previous knowledge of Norwegian. After a year at Fana folk high school, you can expect to understand and speak Norwegian reasonably well.
