CORE COURSE

Cultural Diversity and Integration
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
This course explores whether a multicultural Europe is sustainable given the current migrant crisis and Europe’s major culture clash. Focusing on Denmark, Sweden and Italy, we investigate the social, cultural, and political mechanisms lying at the heart of cultural conflicts and integration issues. This course analyzes theoretical concepts such as integration, assimilation, multiculturalism, recognition, cultural norms, identity, nationalism, and tolerance.
Week-Long Study Tour: Rome 
Core Course Week: Study tour to Southern Sweden + a two-day seminar in Copenhagen
