A new SoIC study-abroad program for Helsinki, Finland, is set to launch in summer 2022! This program will accept both undergraduate and graduate students. Our program will offer students the opportunity to collaborate with students at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland. In the spring semester, students from the IUPUI campus will be partnered with students from the Haaga-Helia campus and collaborate on tech projects using Canvas and other tools. For Indiana University students who wish to go abroad, part of spring semester will also be devoted to academic sessions in anticipation of the international travel. In the first half of summer session 1, students will have the opportunity to reconvene in Helsinki for a two-week period (May 15-May 30) to further collaborate with their partners at Haaga-Helia University. The students’ activities will be supplemented by field trips and site visits relevant to the class as well as to Finnish culture in general via visits to historic sites, museums, industries, and cultural events.
- INFO I400 (Topics in Informatics) — 3 credits undergraduate
- LIS S531 (Information Structures for the Web) — 3 credits graduate
Spring semester but completed in Summer 1:
- LIS S400 (Topics in Applied Data and Information Science: Global digital services) — 3 credits undergraduate
- LIS S604 (Topics in Library and Information Science: Global digital services) — 3 credits graduate
Though designed to be taken as a pair, students may take the spring semester courses (I400, S531) and not opt into the courses that continue into the summer session. Similarly, students may take the continuation courses (S400, S604) and complete the study abroad without taking the spring courses, but technological skill pre-requisites apply to ensure that students who attend during the summer share the same skills as those who take I400 and S531 during the spring.
