The Nyhavn district of Copenhagen, Denmark, is popular with tourists and scholars alike.

The Department of Sociology encourages majors to study abroad—both in the U.S. and overseas—as experience within communities other than one’s own can be an excellent way to learn as a student of sociology.

The sociology curriculum at Dickinson is designed with the hope and expectation that all of our students spend a semester or full year abroad. Many of our student spend part or all of their junior year abroad—either in one of Dickinson’s own programs, with a partner program or as part of a Mosaic. Many sociology majors study in Copenhagen, Denmark, and we have had majors studying at universities all over the world, including China, France, and Australia.
