PROGRAM
students in scandinavia
 
SOCIAL JUSTICE, CULTURE & COMMUNICATION 

Scandinavia is well known for its high quality of life, with many polls consistently ranking countries like Sweden, Denmark, and Norway as some of the most socially just and "happiest" regions on earth. On this journey, we will explore the amazing cities of Uppsala, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Almhult, and Oslo. We will familiarize ourselves with the rich and beautiful heritage of these places, as well as examine how these modern communities care for their people so well. "Lagom,” a Swedish word that means “just the right amount,” sums up our Scandinavian study abroad—just the right amount of rich and diverse culture, vibrant scholarly experiences, and fantastic summer fun.
