Off Campus Opportunities
We have plenty of opportunities for study in German-speaking
countries. The programs are run through the International
Education Office at Hope. Usually we send students to the following locations:
- Freiburg, Germany – We have
both one and two semester programs here. This is one of Germany's
good weather, mountains right nearby, lot of opportunities
for hiking, skiing, and a VERY short distance to both France and
- Berlin – One of Europe's major
capitols, a great place for those wanting a big-city experience.
town. Also one or two semester programs available
- Vienna, Austria – a more relaxed
program with courses in both English and German available.
Vienna is a good
theater and other art-type majors, as well as those whose German
is not up to immersion in a German university.
- European Union Program (Freiburg) – this
is an English language program about the EU, so a good choice
majors who are not emphasizing German language.
- Vienna Summer School – this
is the 'summer vacation' model for experiencing Europe. It's run
but is not
directly a German program per se. It is possible to take German
on the program however, and Vienna is a great city.
To find out more about these opportunities, talk to either Professor
de Haan (x7560) or Professor Forester (x7567)
