Sweden 2011

A new semester program in Sweden was launched in January 2009 with Roland Thorstensson as its first director. This five-month, five-course program took students to the far north (Jokkmokk, located on the Arctic Circle), the eastern seaboard (Stockholm), the western seaboard (Göteborg), and the southernmost Swedish provinces. There were courses on

  • Sami culture
  • Swedish/Nordic politics
  • Swedish emigration/immigration
  • Sweden today
  • Science and environmental law

Some of these courses will fulfill Gustavus General Education Area requirements.

There will be a 2nd Semester in Sweden in 2011 with Eric Eliason, English, as faculty director.

Note: Registration for Sweden-2011 will take place during this academic year with a March 1, 2010 deadline.
