Program Overview

Copenhagen is a little bit off the beaten track, which is exactly why it is so interesting. A cosmopolitan capital and university center of 1.5 million people, Copenhagen is a safe and hospitable city that combines medieval charm with modern lifestyles and easy access to the rest of continental Europe.

The CSI sponsored program is through DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia, an internationally renowned study abroad organization. The DIS program is located at the very center of medieval Copenhagen, in a beautifully restored building from 1789, which includes a library, student lounges, computer labs, student advising and information services, architecture studios, and a few new classrooms.

The program is challenging but manageable; courses are taught in English by Danish faculty, on a level comparable to selective universities.

Students take five 3-credit courses per semester for a total of 15 credits including one core course, a Danish language course, and three other 3-credit courses which you can choose from over 240 elective courses.

DIS offers intellectually challenging academic programs in:

Credits: 15 semester credits
Instructor's Language: English, other than language courses

Student Life & Housing

Program participants may choose among six different types of housing: homestay, Kollegium, residential community, Living & Learning Community (LLC), Folkehojskole, and a rented room.

The Folkehojskole includes a dinner meal plan, and in the other three options meals are provided to students who live with a Danish family; students prepare their own meals. The different housing options entail various degrees of cross-cultural immersion.

”I will never look at furniture the same way now that I have had first hand experience with Danish design. Quality workmanship, an emphasis on function, and attention to good aesthetics are all characteristics of Danish design that I acquired in the DIS Program. Where else but Denmark can you experience a fantastic city, most of it on foot, touch (and sit in!) the fabulous furniture pieces from the master designers of both past and present, AND learn how to weld?”

Sandy Cohen

“The PCD program gives you the rare opportunity to see how the children of Denmark truly live.”
