January in Copenhagen
January in Copenhagen


Travel this January to Danish and immerse in the culture of the happiest country on the planet while studying gender and sexuality through contemporary artistic productions. You’d earn credits in an English-taught coursework at the CIEE Global Institute – Copenhagen while taking part in exciting co-curricular activities designed to increase intercultural understanding.

As one of the most environmentally friendly cities worldwide, Copenhagen is called “Bike City” for a reason: bicycle commuters can be seen riding along with cars and one of the most efficient, clean and accessible public transportations in the continent. You’d spend a semester in a rich and modern city full of adventures on every corner!

  • FIND OUT WHY Denmark is rated one of the happiest countries in the world.
  • EXPLORE Copenhagen’s unique architectural mix of old and new.
  • LIVE IN A CITY designated the world’s first “Bike City”: even in winter.
  • Visits to contemporary arts exhibitions to explore program topics in a cultural context.
  • Tours of the National Museum of Denmark to explore Copenhagen’s transformation from a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century to a world-leader in sustainability and innovation.

Gender and Sexuality J-Term at CIEE Copenhagen

My experience with the CIEE during January Term will always be one of my fondest experiences. The faculty at the CIEE Global Institute were always willing to help review any concept that I had trouble with or even sit and have a meaningful conversation about Danish culture. Our program blended class trips and leisure activities, which were the perfect balance for our group. The academic environment was rich and meaningful; you always learned something and your voice always mattered within the discussion.
