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.

Academics & Program

Course Offerings

Your program at DIS is determined by your choice of a core course. Core courses include a week-long Program Study Tour to a European destination and a Core Course Week, comprised of a two-day seminar and three-day study tour. Both study tours are faculty-led and academically integrated.

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.

Students participate in course-integrated field studies and may conduct an optional comparative field project or go on optional adventure trips organized by DIS.

Adventures abroad

Edward Aminov

”An amazing experience beyond all expectations!”

Amanda Hill

“Spending a short 6 weeks in Copenhagen with the Nursing in Scandinavia program has given me a more global perspective on nursing. We were incorporated into a culture embodying different views and opinions than our own in an atmosphere where all parties involved were able to learn and grow from the differences. This experience abroad has given me a strong curiosity to learn and grow with more cultures. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world of opportunities. “
