This Denmark study abroad course will involve participation in online and in-person discussions based on course readings, which will include a variety of research articles. Once students demonstrate understanding of the process of effective program planning, students will then analyze program planning research that supports the health and wellbeing of at-risk, underserved, and marginalized populations. Specifically, students will be comparing and contrasting evidence from both the United States and Denmark. Prior to the departure, students will participate in an orientation including Denmark culture, cultural communication, trip expectations, and travel logistics. During the study abroad experience, students will participate in daily group activities including tours and discussions with healthcare providers, university faculty and students, and local stakeholders. Following the study abroad daily activities, students will reconvene for reflection and discussion as a group. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to experience Denmark culture through food, museum, and local market experiences. Once back at Georgia State University, students will prepare a final presentation and portfolio of their course learning and experiences.
There will be a few class sessions prior to departure, where the program's coursework will be discussed,
and students will receive important pre-departure information about health, safety & insurance.
There may also be at least one class session held after returning to Atlanta for debriefing. Please note: Georgia State University reserves the right to alter travel and other arrangements if required by circumstances.
