Program Description


Program Overview

Students will engage in coursework prior to and following a two week immersion experience in Osnabrück. The semester coursework will introduce students to the historical and contemporary aspects of German history and culture from an international context. The course will place emphasis on the differences between American and German culture. Students will synthesize their academic knowledge and immersion experience as a means to learn about the social, political, and economic situation in Germany. This course should appeal to students with a strong sense of adventure, a curiosity about our expanding global society and the desire to engage in an academic challenge.

Field experiences and guest lectures are mostly complete during the semester. In Germany, students will have an opportunity to experience what they have learned in the classroom. Student will also be paired with local students from the University of Osnabrück through program activates designed to enrich their knowledge of Germany people and culture. Dr. Kleine will also serve as a guest lecture.

Location

As the conclusion to an exciting semester, students will voyage for two and a half weeks to historic Osnabrück, located in the green hills of northwest Germany. This centuries-old city is one of Germany’s most beautiful and culturally diverse places.  Travel is required for the course and will occur between semesters from May 7-25th, 2018. In Osnabrück students will participate in programs to better connect with students from the Osnabrück University.  The 18 day immersion experience will include excursions to Berlin, Hamburg, and Dresden, as well as visits to various museums, historic sites, and areas of cultural interest.
