Sociology

Globalization has torn down walls, dissolved old hierarchies, and brought cultures closer together; however, this newfound cultural proximity has also created burning issues of integration and migration facing Denmark and Europe today. 

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
  • Through workshops with diverse guest speakers, take part in debates that handle the most current issues of our society 
  • During Core Course Week and on field studies in Copenhagen, explore the transition of previously homogeneous Denmark and neighboring countries brought about by immigration from non-Western countries 
  • Travel on a faculty-led study tour to hear personal stories and explore current issues surrounding cultural divisions and political tensions 

STUDENT PROFILE
This program is right for you if you study sociology, anthropology, political science, or international relations. You should have an interest in examining issues of immigration, integration, and social capital from a European perspective.

CORE COURSE OPTIONS

Cultural Diversity and Integration
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Explore whether a multicultural Europe is achievable given the current migrant crisis and Europe’s major culture clash. Focusing on Denmark and Italy, we will investigate the social, cultural, and political mechanisms lying at the heart of cultural conflicts and integration issues. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Italy 
Core Course Week: Study tour to Southern Sweden + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen 

Sociology of Migration
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Mass immigration – particularly the question of how to control the numbers – has been high on the European agenda. The EU has been characterized as ‘Fortress Europe’ with its particular emphasis on the securitization, surveillance, and externalization of European borders. You will explore the different national responses to mass immigration and how these reactions are connected to populism and nationalist sentiments. 
Week-Long Study Tour: Spain 
Core Course Week: Study tour to Western Denmark-Northern Germany + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen
