Denmark: Overview

Denmark's capital, Copenhagen, was founded in 1167 and has been the home of Danish kings and queens since the 1400s. As a result, the city is graced with an array of towers, castles, and parks. The spirit of the royal city has been maintained with many well-preserved buildings, old winding streets, and open squares. It is a sophisticated yet friendly city, the center of national politics and culture, which offers entertainment from the famous Royal Ballet to Tivoli Gardens.

Programs are offered in Architecture & Design, and Child Diversity & Development.

The academic program is arranged by the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS), an affiliate of the University of Copenhagen. DIS offers instruction in English to approximately 1,000 visiting international students each year. In addition to providing the academic program, DIS arranges housing, organizes field trips, and offers personal assistance to students as necessary. The faculty from DIS is drawn from both higher education and the professional community in Denmark. While lectures are conducted in English, all CSU students study Danish throughout the year as an integral feature of the CSU International Programs. For more information, visit the DIS website.
