Program Reviews:
Patrick M Sawyer, Academic Year 2018 Participant
I think my favorite part of the DIS program was the way they approached their academics, it was a perfect mix of time spent both inside and outside of the classroom. Mixing field studies and site visits with what we were focusing on class made for a very intriguing class environment.

Katherine A Goddard, Fall 2015 Participant
The professors at DIS are mostly Danish, so it was rewarding to be taught by professionals who grew up in another culture. We were encouraged to broaden our thinking while completing assignments, and try to do things that we would normally not be able to do at our university back in the United States.

Fall 2019 Participant
The most rewarding elements were certainly those that allowed me to get to know Danish culture on a really intimate level, such as living with a Dane my age studying at Copenhagen University and meeting up with my visiting host family often and getting to know them. These memories that I've shared with the Danes I've grown close to are the ones I will keep long after returning to America, and are certainly the ones that shaped my experiences while abroad.
