Program Overview

Program Description:
The aim of this ten-week program is to enable American students to learn about German and European history, politics, economic life and culture firsthand in Germany. The program will provide the possibility to earn 7-10 University at Albany college credits in a ten-week course of study. It will be conducted both parallel to and integrated with the regular Wuerzburg University semester. This way, the participants will be exposed to the normal workings of a German university and to German student life.

The program will offer a 6-credit second-year German course. More advanced students can take a 3-credit upper division composition and conversation course. In addition, lectures on History, Politics, Literature and Art History will be conducted in English, with each topic earning 2 SUNY credits. The Summer Program is designed as an academic program that will consist of morning and afternoon lectures and classes. Evaluation of written assignments and tests will determine the letter grades for courses. Excursions to sites of historical and cultural interest (one overnight) will serve to complement classroom work, especially in history and art history. The program will be conducted at the University of Würzburg by regular faculty members from the Departments of Art History, History, Economics, English and American Studies. In addition, Dr. Marc Pierce from the Department of Germanic Studies at The University of Texas at Austin will teach in the Program.
