I had an opportunity to meet incredible people, especially because the Stockholm program was so small, and to explore Sweden and Denmark as my homes away from home. It was a very worthwhile experience. Sarah Legried - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Pursue your academic and personal goals abroad. Build your semester by choosing a core course from seven academic programs, and select from over 30 upper-level elective courses. Your freedom of choice extends to your housing, where you apply to living arrangements that best fit you.
Academics at DIS Stockholm are intellectually stimulating, with courses designed to further your knowledge within your chosen field and inspire intercultural awareness. Challenge yourself to examine issues from different perspectives, raise questions, and debate complex topics through analysis, research, and reflection. Many courses focus on contemporary burning issues; terrorism, migration, economic turmoil, climate change, human rights, and other current topics inspire discussions in the classroom.
Theory-based courses with a focus on practice through hands-on learning experiences include field studies, practicums, student research, guest lecturers, real-life case studies, simulation exercises, skill-building workshops, presentations, and showcases. In addition, you have the opportunity to pursue independent research based on your passion.
Europe as Your Classroom
During the semester, you travel with your core course on two
course-integrated, faculty-led study tours. These connect you with professionals in the field, as well as locals, who add new cultural perspectives to your understanding of course topics. Core Course Week consists of a study tour in Sweden combined with a two-day seminar in Stockholm. Your core course then travels on a Week-Long Study Tour to a relevant European destination.
Faculty Who Teach What They Do
DIS faculty bring real-life expertise from their field into the classroom. Most work as professionals in the areas they teach, giving you access to resources and networks in Stockholm and on study tour – such as researchers, health professionals, consultants, European politicians, leaders, entrepreneurs, ground-breaking activists, fascinating historians … and the list goes on!
DIS offers academic and student support resources that focus on you as an individual, giving you a foundation upon which to grow during your time abroad. Throughout the semester, academic counselling is available to you. Outside of your academics, the DIS Care Team supports your personal well-being by providing student services to help you develop strategies to make the most of your semester.
Cultural Engagement Options
Whether you live in a Homestay, enroll in a Swedish Language and Culture course, play on a local sports team, or meet your Visiting Host for fika; your learning will take place beyond the classroom. Our goal is to help you depart your semester having built a network and friendships.
