During Summer 2014, DIS offers 37 three or four-credit courses within a variety of academic fields. The courses are offered in three consecutive sessions, 18 in Session 1 (May 25 - June 14), 14 in Session 2 (June 16 - July 5), and 5 in Session 3 (July 7 - August 2). In Session 1, there are no study tours, but rather field studies around course-related destinations in Copenhagen (see below). In Sessions 2 and 3, the courses include a five-day study tour in Scandinavia or Europe. Early summer courses offer great flexibility in terms of length of study (three, four, six, seven or ten weeks) and course selection, while the professional programs, on the other hand (Architecture, Furniture Design, Interior Architecture, Graphic Design, Urban Design), are thoroughly integrated seven-week programs. Summer study abroad programs, like those during the semester, are demanding and of high academic quality. You are expected to prepare for and attend classes, hand in assignments, and take responsibility for your own learning. Do not expect to work more than at home, but expect to work more than you might anticipate from a summer abroad program. Most DIS courses are taught by permanent, part-time Danish faculty who hold full-time positions in academia, government, business and other professions. The DIS student body is a diverse group of bright, high achieving third and fourth year students from ranking American universities and colleges, making the classroom and study tours a highly inspirational academic and social setting.
