Program Reviews:
Fall 2016 Participant
Denmark is a fairly homogeneous country, and though I expected a large amount of culture shock, it was a pretty easy place to settle in. Danish people are very friendly and helpful, but often keep to themselves unless otherwise necessary.

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.

Summer 2018 Participant
The complete design and production of a chair was especially rewarding, as we were able to realize and practice in real life many of the design techniques and traditions that we learned about in class. The study tour was also very influential because we got to see construction, application, and real life examples of many of the items we learned about in class. It was also a helpful study of proportion and joinery techniques.
