Southern SwedenCore Course Week Study Tour | Communication Program

Core Course Week, including short Study Tour, enhances the New Media and Changing Communities curriculum, as it allows you to experience how classroom theories are applied to various contexts. During a two-day seminar in Copenhagen and a three-day short study tour to Southern Sweden, you will interact and collaborate with local communities to see how they use new media in innovative ways.
