How to Build Your Curriculum

#1. Choose One Core Course

The Core Course is a signature of the DIS academic experience as it includes two course-integrated Study Tours. You pick one Core Course from within 26 Academic Programs. Your Core Course includes:

  • Core Course Week – early in your semester, an entire week is dedicated to just your Core Course – with a three-day short Study Tour in Denmark or nearby countries and a two-day seminar in Copenhagen
  • Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe

#2. Add Three or Four Elective Courses

Build your semester from a choice of over 240 courses across over 70 disciplines. You can search courses across disciplines, semesters and credits.

What to Look at After Your Academics are Planned

  • Choose the right type of housing for you from our six diverse options
  • Explore ways to meet the Danes and engage with the local culture

DIS Recommends

Based on past student feedback, here are just a few of the many opportunities that we recommend you consider for your semester here in Copenhagen:

  • Join a research project with DIS faculty or local researchers with one of the 3 or 6-credit Research Assistant courses
  • Over 60% of students take a Danish Language and Culture course and highlight it as one of their favorite courses – make this elective the first you sign up for!
  • Choose to live in a Homestay and find a home away from home
  • Rent a bike and commute to DIS – Danes bike rain or shine and it's a great way to explore 
  • Make meeting the Danes a priority and volunteer at Studenterhuset (the city’s student union), join a local sports team, sign up for the Visiting Host Program, and more!
  • If you love the idea of traveling on Study Tours, consider signing up for an Elective Course Tour
