Study Abroad

DIS/University of Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark

Students apply directly to DIS but you must indicate you will receive credit from the University of Minnesota, the school of record for DIS.  We strongly encourage you to select housing with Danish students or a Danish family; the other options provide only minimum contact with Danish life.

In choosing courses, take care to only select liberal arts courses.  Many of the course options at DIS are not liberal arts courses (e.g. business, medicine) and will not be awarded Amherst credit.

Students are expected to take Danish as one of the courses on the program.
