The Country: 
 Welcome to Denmark - the happiest place on Earth! This Scandinavian country– located just north of Germany – is your destination for study abroad. Denmark features beautiful landscapes, eco-friendly cities, while still maintaining medieval Viking charm. Once the seat of Viking raiders, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation. It’s a modern market economy with up-to-date, small-scale and corporate industry, extensive government welfare measures, comfortable living standards, a stable currency and a high dependence on foreign trade. The Danes have a very ordered but happy lifestyle. To them, life is meant to be lived not spent in an office. In this program you will spend time in the cool harbor town of Roskilde and in Denmark’s largest city and cultural hub, Copenhagen, known for spectacular architecture, vibrant city life and friendly locals.
