If you are interested taking courses in Germany, WCU offers plenty of opportunities to do so! For those who for whatever reason cannot spend entire semester abroad, the faculty-led summer program in Stuttgart/Ludwigsburg is an excellent option. Each summer, Dr. Lehman takes a group of students to Germany for four weeks (usually during the calendar month of June), where each student takes six credit hours of German language and culture. In the past we have had courses at the beginning (GER101/102), intermediate (GER231/232) and advanced (two three-credit courses at the 300-400 level) levels. If you are interested in learning more, contact Dr. Lehman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications for the following summer are usually due in November, so don't wait!
For those interested in longer stays in Germany, there are several options. The University of North Carolina system has an exchange program (UNCEP) with the German state of Baden-Württemberg (of which Stuttgart is the capital city), as well as ISEP programs in other German cities. For more information on these and other programs contact International Programs and Services.
