Around the World Wednesday

Today’s Destination is… Germany

Fast Facts:

- Choose between two very different programs: Berlin and Heidelberg

- In Berlin, you can study at the Freie Universitat Berlin. You’ll get to participate in an intensive 6-week language program and spend a month with a host family. You’ll also get to take classes alongside German students and experience life in Germany’s political and cultural capital.

- In Heidelberg, you get to take part in a 4-week intensive language and culture class. You can take classes through the “American Junior Year” program, as well as at Heidelberg Universitat. Heidelberg is a charming town and a great university city.

- Located in the middle of Europe, you’ll have the perfect vantage point to discover the rest of the continent. Or spend time in Germany, taking in the diverse landscape of this beautiful country. (And like there are castles and soft pretzels- I’m not sure why you’d leave!)
