Sociology

Globalization has dissolved old hierarchies and brought cultures closer together; however, this newfound cultural proximity has also created challenges of integration and migration facing Denmark and Europe today. How do traditionally homogeneous countries, especially welfare states where social cohesion has been a factor of their structural success, evolve with the increase of migration? Making Denmark your classroom – and then Sweden and Italy on your Study Tours – you challenge your own opinions and explore the social, political, and cultural implications of the conflicts in question.

Core Courses

Cultural Diversity and Integration
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course explores whether a multicultural Europe is sustainable given the current migrant crisis and Europe’s major culture clash. Focusing on Denmark, Sweden, and Spain, we investigate the social, cultural, and political mechanisms lying at the heart of cultural conflicts and integration issues. This course analyzes theoretical concepts such as integration, assimilation, multiculturalism, recognition, cultural norms, identity, nationalism, and tolerance.

Core Course Study Tours

This program travels on Study Tours to the following destinations:

  • Week-Long Study Tour: Italy

  • Core Course Week: Southern Sweden

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
 
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
