The Department of German participates in the Academic Year in Freiburg program, supported by the University of Iowa, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Michigan, and Michigan State University. The program provides a year of study for undergraduates at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg, Germany. Following a four-week intensive language program in September, students take a combination of special program classes and regular German university courses during the winter (mid-October through mid-February) and summer (mid-April through mid-July) semesters. Organized field trips give students a broad perspective of German culture, while vacation periods permit extensive travel throughout Europe.
The University of Iowa also offers exchange programs with the Universität Dortmund and business-oriented programs in Frankfurt and Vienna. Study abroad scholarships are frequently available. Visit the Study Abroad office for more information.
