This exchange program enables undergraduate and graduate students with diverse majors and interests to study at one of thirteen universities in Baden-Württemberg for an academic year or a semester. Sites include Freiburg, Heidelberg, Hohenheim, Ludwigsburg, Karlsruhe, Konstanz, Mannheim, Stuttgart, Trossingen, Tübingen, and Ulm. Students may select between traditional liberal arts universities, technical universities, a top rated business school, or institutions specializing in teacher education, music, or art.
There are two types of courses Oregon students can take while in Germany: DaF (German as a Second Language) courses and regular university courses. Students with one or two years of college-level German can take a variety of classes in the “German as a Second Language” (DaF = Deutsch als Fremdsprache) section of each university. These courses will typically translate as German language credits in Oregon.
Students with more advanced language proficiency can enroll in regular university classes in the humanities, natural and social sciences, education, business, communications, engineering, computer science, architecture, music, art and more. In some cases, classes are taught in English.
