Is this Program Right for You?This program is designed for academically curious students looking for an off the beaten path study abroad destination in Europe. Students participate in an academically themed program of courses and take study tours throughout Europe.
The summer options at DIS are not
run-of-the-mill summer programs. For the summer, DIS typically offers approximately seventeen 3-Credit course options within a variety of academic fields. The courses are
offered in two consecutive 3-week sessions. You can choose to enroll in one
course for 3 credits, either in Session 1 or in Session 2, or you can
enroll in two courses for 6 credits, one in Session 1 and one in
Session 2. Most summer students choose this option for 6 credits. You
are free to combine any two courses from Sessions 1 and 2. You can take
both courses within one and the same academic field, but you can also
diversify. Courses in Session Two include study tour trips to various locations in Europe. Session One courses typically do not include study tours, but rather may contain field study trips to course-related destinations in Copenhagen.

Student LifeWhile it has the world's oldest existing monarchy, Denmark also has a modern democracy with an efficient economy and a social welfare system. Danish society, with little social inequity and no real poverty is a population who is culturally aware and very politically active. All of this, combined with top-notch research facilities, makes Denmark an ideal place to study abroad. Copenhagen, Scandinavia's largest city, was founded in 1167! Students will discover world class museums, ancient cobblestone streets, and the enchanting Tivoli Gardens alongside the latest trends in fashion, design and architecture.
