The program consists of a 2.5 week travel tour of Scandinavian countries followed by a place-based design curriculum in Aarhus, Denmark. Study abroad in Scandinavia offers a unique opportunity to experience and investigate a cultural context across multiple nations that share a common thread regarding the potential ecological responsibility, stewardship of the landscape and smart development of the city and suburb in concert.
The program is designed for third-year architecture students. A minimum 2.25 GPA is required to participate, and students may not have any outstanding sanctions with the Office of Student Conduct.
