Freedom of Choice
Pursue your academic and personal goals abroad. Build your semester by choosing a Core Course from 26 Academic Programs, and select from 240 upper-level courses – all taught in English. Your freedom of choice extends to your housing, where you have six housing options to ensure the best fit for you.
Academic Excellence & Cultural Learning
Intellectually stimulating courses challenge you to examine issues from various perspectives. You will learn how concepts and issues are perceived, lived, and theorized in Europe, and reflect on the cultural norms and values that shape you.
All DIS courses take you out of the classroom on local Field Studies, exploring Copenhagen through an academic lens. Our courses also offer you opportunities to participate in research, simulate real-life scenarios through case studies, gain professional feedback in studio, update your resume with practicum and workshop experience, and more.
Europe as Your Classroom
You travel with your Core Course on two faculty-led Study Tours related to your Academic Program! Visit important sites and meet with local experts who add their perspectives to your knowledge of the field.
Faculty Who Teach What They Do
Most DIS faculty work as professionals in the areas they teach, bringing theory to life by sharing real-world expertise and examples in the classroom and giving you access to their networks.
The Office of Academic Support and the DIS Care Team support your personal and academic well-being by developing strategies to make the most of your semester.
Meet the Locals
Living in a Homestay, signing up for a sports team, taking a Danish Language and Culture course, or attending evening seminars are among the ways to build your international network and meet the locals.
Commitment to Diversity and Respect
DIS is committed to building and supporting a diverse community. We welcome students of different racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds and gender identities, and look forward to partnering with you to foster an inclusive learning environment within the Scandinavian cultural and historical landscape.
My semester abroad will undoubtedly impact my later life experiences in the educational, professional, and social world.”
