In Luneburg, a beautiful, historical city dating back more than a thousand years, USAC students study intensive elementary, intermediate, and advanced German language. The USAC program is located at the Leuphana University Luneburg (formerly the University of Luneburg), where you can participate in university activities and clubs and become acquainted with local students. You can also take elective courses, taught in English or German, in subjects such as political science, anthropology, economics, and speech communication, and qualified students can apply for a work-study grant or for an internship at a local business. Field trips to regional sites of interest, for example to Hamburg, Schwerin, and Lubeck, are included in the program, giving you opportunities to learn more about the country, the history of the area, and the German people.
The program complements this academic window on the German people with experiential elements designed to provide you with the opportunity for social and cultural integration through the university, lodging with locals, and field trips to sites of social, artistic, and historical importance. The Luneburg Program offers intensive language study up to two years of university language requirements that may be met in one semester.
Program fees include tuition, housing, orientation, public transportation in Lüneburg, some field trips, health insurance, and some entries to museums and cultural events.
