Overview of Classes

Global studies is the umbrella for all Folk High School Classes taught at International People’s College in Denmark. All classes are taught in English and have both a global and regional focus through personal development, professional skills, communication  and creativity.

Learning at International People’s College is meant to challenge, stimulate, and educate you – not only will you discover what you are good at but also what makes you happy. You will learn how to use your unique skills in the best way possible. At International People’s College we believe that knowledge is many things and that it is acquired in many different ways. This is reflected in offering a wide selection of Folk High School Classes ranging from those having an academic focus to a practical one.

How to choose your own classes

The yearly schedule at International People’s College is divided into two terms, one in spring (24 weeks) and the other in autumn (18 weeks). It is also possible to attend for half a term – read more about the possibilities under Dates & prices.

The group of students changes every term and there are usually 90-100 students coming from around 30 different countries and on average they are in their early 20s. Their motivation for joining our Folk High School in Denmark varies. Some come because of an interest in international society and culture, others want to improve their language skills, others again are keen on discovering more about developmental and NGO work or want to develop certain personal and professional skills. Read more about what former students say about International People’s College here.

The Folk High School Classes at International People’s College vary and you can choose them for yourself and put together your own schedule. Your main interest might be academic and therefore your classes may mainly consist of courses like Development Studies, Global Challenges, Political Philosophy, etc.  You may also be interested in music and some of your classes might be Band Playing and Choir. Or vice versa. The important thing is, you can pick and choose between a wide range of classes like arts, sports, self development, political science, gender studies, etc. All with a global and regional angle.

During the first week of your term you will be introduced to the classes offered from which you will put together your own schedule. If you are attending a whole term (24 or 18 weeks) you will get the opportunity to change your schedule halfway through and pick new Folk High School classes. Every student must reach a minimum of 28 lessons a week – but trust us, the biggest problem will be which ones to eliminate. View examples of students timetables here or watch the movie below.

Our classes are listed below in alphabetical order. The subjects vary according to the current teachers and the wishes of the students.
