Fall/Spring semester

Core Course Week, including the short Study Tour, allows us to delve into the theme of Nordic Visual Arts. We will have a two-day seminar in the Copenhagen area, focusing on the role of art and cinema in the Nordic countries today. We will then venture to Western Denmark on a three-day study tour, where we will travel to the European Film College in Ebeltoft and ARoS Museum of Modern Art in Aarhus.

Through discussions and visits to these institutions, as well as important historical sites, you will learn more about Danish culture and better understand the tradition from which Nordic artists have come and the context in which they create.
