Program Description

Visit Copenhagen and one of the world’s most advanced and comprehensive social welfare systems

The course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students and human services practitioners

The purpose of this international program is to study the Danish social welfare system and social pedagogy by immersing ourselves into the Danish culture.  Our base will be at the University College Campus Carlsberg, where social pedagogues/educators (human services professionals) receive their education.  We will visit a variety of human services organizations, including programs providing services to young children, people with disabilities, children in foster care, people faced with addiction and sex-workers. We will also visit Denmark’s first Rainbow Home for the elderly, i.e., a home supporting elderly people identifying as LGBTQ. Finally, we will visit a community program for youth with “other ethic” background and learn about how Denmark is transitioning into a multi-cultural society. There will be time for sightseeing in the world’s oldest monarchy and one of Europe’s quaintest capitals.  It is also possible to visit other Scandinavian countries.

The program includes: 3 undergraduate or graduate credits; roundtrip New York – Copenhagen; lodging and breakfast at a hostel; visits to the University College Campus for social pedagogues and human services agencies; biking sightseeing tour in Copenhagen; several meals; and a true cultural, professional, and educational experience with a native Dane as your faculty director and guide.
