Spend your Spring Break with classmates in the wonderful city of Copenhagen, Denmark’s beautiful capital city. This coastal city will serve as the backdrop for your HON 101 course. Long known as one of the “happiest countries in the world” and as the #1 city for work-life balance, you will explore and learn how history, religion, art, spirituality, and philosophy all come together to help one create a better life.

This program is filled with on-site guest lectures, field studies, and cultural activities. Whether you contemplate Confucius while exploring the harbor and waterfront or learn about life and its great mysteries outside the Christiansborg Palace or Rosenborg Castle, this class and trip will prove to be a once in a lifetime experience!

  Dr. Dan Getz & Dr. Andrew Kelley

This team-taught course will explore and reframe the traditional ideas regarding what kind of life one might want and what role work plays in our lives. We will continue to examine the philosophies encountered in your current and previous HON seminars. Using Copenhagen as our backdrop, we will undoubtedly have wonderful discussions about happiness, aspirations, hopes, and dreams. You will quickly learn how international travel, culture, history, philosophy, religion, and spirituality play an important role in how we live, grow, and view our lives and the lives of others.
