The DIS Fall 2014 Semester Commences

The fall 2014 academic semester has officially started, with a dynamic group of students hailing from 157 universities across the U.S. and Canada.

DIS DIS Copenhagen Semester

Last week, students were introduced to DIS and Copenhagen during the three-day Arrival Workshop. They had the opportunity to bond with classmates, meet our faculty, settle into new homes, start courses, and learn to navigate Copenhagen and Danish culture.

With DIS courses in full swing, we are excited to note that there is a wide array of new and exciting core courses offered for the first time this semester:

Modern Frames: European Art and Cinema

Religious Mythos and Philosophical Logos

New Media and Changing Communities

Adolescence in Northern Europe

LGBTQ in Europe: Theories, Communities, and Spaces

Looking forward, Core Course Week is fast approaching. In early September, students will spend a week with their core course faculty member on a two-day seminar in Copenhagen and a three-day study tour in Western Denmark, Southern Sweden, or Northern Germany. Students will meet with experts in the field, visit organizations, and begin to gain an understanding of the local culture.

DIS wishes current students a fantastic start to the fall semester! To see photos from last week’s workshops, head to the DIS Facebook page.
