DIS Abroad offers courses in three disciplines in Stockholm, Sweden: Gender & Sexuality Studies, Medical Practice & Policy, and Psychology. Included in the program are Study Tours, or opportunities to travel and learn experientially in another city within Europe. Join one of the most equitable and environmentally-friendly countries in the world.
DIS Stockholm is a brand new program through DIS Study Abroad. There are three semester or academic year programs of interest from which you can choose. You will start by selecting a core course, that includes a week-long international excursion, and then select from a variety of liberal arts focused courses for your remaining classes.
Semester Study Programs:
Gender & Sexuality Studies
Medical Practice & Policy
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is rich in resources for DIS field studies as the hub for politics, business, and research sectors. Sweden has been named the world's most equal country, recently adding a gender neutral pronoun to their dictionary. The natural environment of Stockholm allows for the exploration of 30,000 islands, stretching from the city to the Baltic sea. Committed to preserving their natural landscapes, the city hopes to be completely fossil fuel-free by 2050. Learn more about Stockholm through personal stories.
DIS Stockholm allows many housing options to consider:
- Living & Learning Community
- Residential Community
- Independent Housing (self-arranged)
Housing is guaranteed for all students who apply and request it. The application asks for preferences, but does not guarantee one's first choice. Note that all housing options will require a bus or train commute, just as how the locals commute to work or school. The public transportation is safe, clean and is a major part of the Swedish lifestyle. Around 90% of the city’s population hops on the train as a part of their daily transportation.
More information about the housing options can be found HERE.
