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 a college educating social pedagogues/educators (human services professionals) and we will spend much of our time in the company of students and practitioners. 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 started to support 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 a social pedagogical college and human services agencies; biking sightseeing in Copenhagen; several meals; and a true cultural, professional, and educational experience with a native Dane as your faculty director and guide.
REQUIREMENTS: In order to be considered for this course, interested students must have a personal interview with Mette Christiansen, have prior human services experience, and be comfortable with leisurely biking.
