  • Europe will be your classroom as you travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on courseintegrated study tours to Western Denmark and across locations in Europe, meeting with researchers, policy-makers, and NGOs
  • The academic rigor of the course will be enhanced with guest lectures from practitioners inCopenhagen and field studies to local organizations that will bring real world examples of how psychological science is applied and practiced in Denmark

This program is right for you if you are interested in psychology, social policy, neuroscience, or human development.
