Student Profile

This program is right for you if you study gender studies, women’s studies, anthropology, sociology, or human rights.,For Gustavus Adolphus students: DIS uses US semester credits. Each GAC unit = 4 US semester credits. Thus, most DIS courses, which are worth 3 US semester credits each, are worth 0.75 GAC units. Be sure to discuss the irregular unit totals with your advisors as you select courses.

Students will stay in Stockholm within the 90 days allowed for U.S. citizens under the Visa Waiver Program. Then, they will fly to Copenhagen for the final month of the semester (with a Danish residence permit).

Students should also be advised not to travel independently in the Schengen region before the start of the semester in order to preserve their 90 days of visa-free travel for the DIS dates.
