Denmark Summer 2019 / July 4 – August 2 (tentative)

About the Program

Denmark consistently ranks among the happiest countries in the world. This four-week program considers the secrets behind Danes’ contentment with special emphases on food and diversity. Together we will learn about Denmark’s rich culture and history, as well as the country’s response to rising diversity within its borders. We will explore the beautiful city of Copenhagen—its neighborhoods, museums, castles, and restaurants. Activities will include a tour of the diverse Norrebro neighborhood; a guided visit to Torvehallerne food market; dinner at a “New Nordic” restaurant; and dinner at home with a Danish family. Students will have the chance to give back through service at a food-sharing non-profit and a camp for low-income children.

Why I Studied Abroad

"Only one percent of college students study abroad, and I'm so glad that I chose to be one of them. Studying abroad was a dream come true, and being able to support my expectations with some firsthand experience was both a challenge and a reward. If you're truly prepared to immerse yourself in another culture and ingest what it has to offer, it will change you - for the better. I highly recommend that you take the plunge!"

-Kirsten O'Brien, 2016
