Study Abroad Summer: Programs & Courses
Study abroad at DIS allows you to pursue a dream summer. You have the opportunity to engage and immerse while living in a new home. Courses with field components and extracurricular offerings are designed for you to maximize your time both academically and culturally. You can further your academic goals through a wide range of courses and explore Copenhagen through course related field studies (Session 1) and travel in Europe on a course integrated study tour (Session 2). Whether you choose Session 1, Session 2, or both sessions, DIS faculty and staff are committed to helping you meet your learning objectives through cutting-edge academic topics and your personal goals by thoughtful designed co-curricular programming and student services.
Option 1 - Build Your Own Program:
During the summer, you can build your own program by choosing one three-week, 3-credit course in either Session 1 or Session 2, or by choosing two courses (one from each session) and staying for a six-week, 6-credit period.
Option 2 - Architecture and Design:
Choose between Architecture, Furniture Design, Graphic Design, Interior Architecture and Urban Design programs, which are for seven weeks and 9 credits. There are also two related courses in Session 1, Design and Society in Denmark and Livability in the Modern City, which can be taken alone for 3 credits or combined with one of the later Architecture and Design programs for a 10-week, 12-credit summer stay.
