DIS offers programs in two locations:  Copenhagen (Denmark) and Stockholm (Sweden).  DIS offers a wide variety of courses in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, each program choice centered upon a discipline or theme entitled the Core Course. Additional courses as well as program excursions and supplemental events and speakers connect to the Core Course.

Program tracks include: Architecture and Design, Art & Visual Culture, Biotechnology, Biomedicine, Communication & Mass Media, Danish Language & Culture, European Culture & History, European Politics & Society, International Business & Economics, Literature, Medical Practice & Policy, Migration & Identity, Philosophy, Public Health, Psychology & Child Development and Urban Studies, and more.

Most of the courses are taught in English by the faculty of local universities, and special attention is given to Scandinavia and the Baltics, and more generally to the European Union. Many courses involve travel to field sites. Some program choices (Core Courses) allow students to take courses in both Denmark and Sweden. 

Students must live with a host family or enroll in Danish or Swedish Language and Culture.

Credit: 4.5 per semester (equivalent of 15 semester hours is required for full credit) or 9 for full year.
Period: one semester (fall or winter-spring) or full year.

Faculty advisors: Professors Greg Gilbert and Judy Thorn
