The Lüneburg program is ideal for students interested in learning the German language and focusing on European Studies- specifically Germany's role within the European Union- or for fall and yearlong students studying Engineering. Through formal coursework and personal interaction with the host culture, you will greatly expand your language skills and knowledge of German society. Lüneburg offers students the quality of life of a smaller community without sacrificing the cultural resources and activities of a large metropolitan city. Lüneburg is also only 30 minutes away from former East Germany, providing a unique vantage point from which to study the dynamics of reunification.
The program offers three diverse academic areas: German Language, European Studies, and Engineering. The intensive language approach allows you to complete up to two years of university language requirements in one semester. Additional courses in economics, history, culture, art history, literature, intercultural communication, politics, and engineering are taught in German or English to provide a well-rounded curriculum. You may choose to stay for one semester or a full year. However, the academic courses are only a part of the intended value of the program. Participation in cultural activities, festivals, and field trips to Hamburg, Celle, Bremen, and an optional tour to Berlin also form an integral part of the program.
Program fees include tuition, orientation, bus pass, some entries to museums and cultural events, and health insurance.
- Setting Description:
- Lüneburg, a city in the German state of Niedersachsen, is only 30 minutes south of Hamburg by by train and is a thriving city of 1.8 million. One of the few German cities never destroyed in any conflict, Luneburg offers an extraordinary opportunity to live in the beauty and history of a city dating back more than a thousand years. The city was established as a result of the salt pits located nearby and in 1189 the town enjoyed rapid expansion under the protection of Henry the Lion.
