Program Description:
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.
