Social Sciences - Education / Pedagogy / College course description
Norwegian term or phrase: innvalgskurs
I am looking for the correct English equivalent of innvalgskurs. It appears in this sentence: I en spesialiseringsretning er det anledning til a velge
inntil 12 studiepoeng innvalgskurs fra en annen spesialiseringsretning i siviløkonomistudiet.

I understand that it is a course within the choice of specialization direction (major), but may I call it "minor"?

Could also anyone refer me to the Norwegian-English educational dictionary?
Thank you.
