Opportunity Description

Well known for its progressive norms and policies, Sweden is a unique place to study the challenges, ideas, and dilemmas within gender, equality, and sexuality.

What is unique about this program?

  • Explore the implications and challenges of living in a country with the world’s first self-proclaimed feminist government where ‘gender mainstreaming’ policies are highest on the agenda
  • Visit with Swedish families raising their children in a gender-neutral manner and reflect on your own gendered upbringing
  • Travel with your classmates and faculty on course-integrated study tours to examine how constructions of gender and sexuality intersect with ethnicity, race, class, religion, and (dis-)ability in Europe

What is unique about Stockholm?

Stockholm is effortless to explore. Comprised of fourteen islands, with a public transit system that travels across waterways, the city is well connected. While some corners of Stockholm are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon all within easy reach. 

While rich in history and culture, Sweden prides itself on progressive thinking, openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize and a list of prestigious universities, institutions, and leading innovators, Stockholm offers the context of a capital led by forward-looking decision makers and scholars. 

Learn more about the city on the DIS Stockholm YouTube page.
