scan|design Foundation Copenhagen Classroom Program
Contemporary Denmark has been recognized worldwide for advancements in design and technology, as well as for progressive cultural and social policies. Understanding the Danes and Danish culture is key to understanding Danish innovations and solutions to the challenges of the 21st Century.
Working with the foundation, the University of Washington department of Scandinavian Studies has developed the Copenhagen Classroom Program. This 12-credit, interdisciplinary, intensive four-week course. Students live and study for the month of August in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Copenhagen Classroom program was established in 2006 and the first University of Washington student group studied in Copenhagen
for the month of August. The program is divided into four week-long mini-courses, taught in English by dynamic UW faculty and Scandinavian specialists. Simultaneously with the interdisciplinary program, students can also choose to participate in a 3-week intensive Danish language course taught by Danish faculty at the University of Copenhagen.
This program is open to ALL University of Washington students. Undergraduate students at all levels are strongly encouraged to apply.
