Program Description:

Sustainable development has emerged as one of the most important issues of the 21st century. It is a multi-dimensional concept that aims to integrate environmental, social and economic objectives into a discussion about our consumption of energy and the impact of changing usage on all of our futures. Scandinavian countries like Iceland, Denmark and Sweden are known for their ecological consciousness and as leaders in renewable and alternative energy production. Their sustainable energy programs are known to be the best in the world and are therefore the perfect destination for studying the power and impact of sustainable energy.

The faculty for this program is Melissa Markley of the Driehaus College of Business Marketing Department on the Scandinavia study abroad program. For more information, please contact the program director, Dr. Melissa Markley (

Here are some helpful tips from former students who have participated in this program:
  • Shopping at the local Aldi will help you save money, as Scandinavia is more expensive than the US.
  • Plan your adventures the way you want to experience them. Don't merely follow a crowd, make your free day YOUR free day.
  • Research the countries and learn the basic greetings prior to going on the trip.
  • This trip is educational and ties well into any career path.
  • Go with an open mind. Accept that there are cultural differences and be respectful.
  • Take walks around the city and parks as they are very beautiful.
  • Make close relationships with the people on your trip and don't be afraid to talk to locals.
