Each semester The Program organizes a two day boat trip to the Stockholm Archipelago to conclude the orientation period. The Archipelago consists of thousands of beautiful islands located in the Baltic Sea which surround Stockholm. We will visit the island of Finnhamn during the Fall and Spring semesters.
I absolutely loved it. It was truly one of the best four months of my life. I think I got everything I was looking for in a study abroad experience. I love Sweden!

the island of gotland
The purpose of our main Program Excursion is to introduce students to a part of Sweden they might otherwise miss. In visiting this unique island, students will be able to experience one of the most beautiful and historically significant islands in the world.
Gotland is an island characterized by desolate heaths, lush meadows, spectacular cliffs, and sandy beaches. The walled medieval city of Visby is one of the best preserved “old towns” in the world. UNESCO has recognized Gotland as a historical and cultural treasure by adding it to its World Heritage List.
A major theme of our trip will be to explore Sweden's Viking heritage. We will visit a Viking museum, participate in traditional Viking games, and enjoy a typical Viking dinner. Other activities may include lectures, hiking, and bicycling. The cost of this three-day trip will be $495.00. The inclusive cost includes transportation, hotel, and all meals. You will receive more information on this trip with your acceptance letter.
