6 weeks in Germany
Professor Roger Crockett
Bayrische Studienwochen is a six-week total-immersion language program conducted primarily in the south of Germany. It provides students the opportunity to make large strides in their language proficiency by hearing and speaking exclusively German. Homestays, classwork, and culturally focused travel are the three pillars of the program. Students experience the university campus life of Bayreuth, and the culture, history, and modern pulse of metropolitan life in Berlin and Munich. Weekend excursions take us to Bamberg and over the border to Salzburg. Day trips highlight Bamberg and Nürnberg. Central to the experience are three hours of class in the morning for five weeks with a curriculum consisting of advanced grammar and composition, supplemented with German literature and culture, and culminating with a term paper and final examination. Except when we are on the road, students live with German families. Extensive contact with Germany university students in Bayreuth is arranged.
GERM 263 is for intermediate level students, and satisfies the foundation requirement in language. For students who go on to major in German, three credits of the 263 credit will be applied. GERM 303 is for advanced students and counts toward the German major and minor.
Program Fee (paid to the university): $2250 (includes room and board, transportation within the country, activity fees, guest lectures, mandatory supplemental health insurance).
Estimated Additional Expenses: Airfare - $1000-1200; pocket money - $600
