DIS is a non-profit study abroad foundation established in Denmark in 1959, with locations in Copenhagen and Stockholm. DIS provides semester, academic year, and summer programs taught in English, and offers high-impact learning experiences for upper-division undergraduate students from distinguished North American colleges and universities. The intellectually challenging curriculum is broad, cutting edge, and enriched by experiential learning components, including faculty-led study tours across Europe. The housing and extracurricular offerings provide students with opportunities for meaningful cultural engagement and personal growth.
DIS aims to be an inclusive, pluralistic, and diverse study abroad institution that prioritizes creating a learning experience and environment where everyone can reach their full potential, and build skills to navigate in the globalized world. Our student body, faculty members, and staff are all diverse in perspectives, backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicity, and skills, which is integral to our overall goal of academic excellence. As a community, we are all responsible for creating the environment that we want to have at DIS, one that stands for equity and equality.
