Additional Academic Opportunities
If you are interested in doing research in Denmark/Europe as part of a project or thesis from your home university, you may enroll in the ‘Research Project’ course. Please see the full course list. By taking this course, you will be able to carry out a piece of individualized research under the guidance of a local advisor. The project must be prepared beforehand at your home university, so that you are ready to maximize your use of the local environment once you arrive in Copenhagen. Talk to your faculty advisor at home about integrating research at DIS in your Honors Project or Senior Thesis. Read more on Student Research.
For an additional fee of $500 ($550 from fall 2013), students who have started a foreign language at their home institution and are required to continue studying that language while abroad may be able to do so at DIS, provided the level of language is a documented requirement of the student’s declared major or minor. One foreign language class per semester (other than Danish) is permitted. Please contact the DIS North American Office for more details on 800 247-3477, non-US: (612) 627-0140, or click here to send an email.
