Program Description:

Study Abroad in the Heart of Copenhagen


DIS courses run in several sessions of varying length, with different start and end dates.
You choose which courses and times are best suited to your academic goals and your summer plans
Copenhagen will be your home and Europe your classroom! Most sessions include course-integrated study tours elsewhere in Europe
DIS offers a wide range of academically stimulating, cutting-edge courses taught with a focus on interaction and real-life experience: all courses feature field studies in Copenhagen to bring classroom discussions to life


DIS is located in the heart of medieval Copenhagen. On your way to class, you will navigate through a network of walking streets, and after class you’ll explore squares packed with outdoor cafes, canals lined with cobblestones and colorful facades, castles surrounded by public gardens, and twisting spires dotting the skyline.
You’ll be on the forefront of witnessing the ‘New Nordic’ wave currently reinventing the aesthetics of design, architecture, and food. If you choose to bike to class, you’ll join the 55% of Copenhageners who commute using the city’s well-planned bike lanes. You’ll find hidden corners of the city designed for community use, from skate parks to harbor baths.

Copenhagen comes alive in the summer. The city streets and parks buzz with festivals, seasonal markets, cultural events, and outdoor music performances. With 18 hours of daylight, the days are long and filled with things to do. Events in and around the city include a jazz festival, Copenhagen Fashion Week, Roskilde Music Festival, the open-air Distortion electronica festival, midsummer bonfires celebrating Sankthansaften, and the Pride parade, which make Copenhagen an exciting place to be in the summer.
