Study Abroad

Study Abroad

The department conducts two 8-week Summer Language Institutes in Germany for students in second-, third-, and fourth-year German. Students normally enroll for 9 credit hours and live with German families.

Juniors and seniors are encouraged to spend a semester or a full academic year at a university in Germany. Consult with the Office of Study Abroad and the Undergraduate Advisor early in your undergraduate career.

Graduating seniors may apply for Direct Exchange Program fellowships at universities in Germany. For information, consult the department or the Office of International Programs.
