There is no better way of improving your language and cultural competency than traveling, studying and living in the country where the language is spoken. You will acquire not only the language, but also the culture and customs, a huge asset in the global society of today.

German students at The University of Alabama may choose between a longer stay abroad (one semester or an entire year) or participating in a five week long summer study abroad program.

Students who have completed at least four semesters of German or the equivalent thereof (GN 202 or GN 112) are eligible for our semester programs.

Summer Program

The five-week long Alabama in Germany Summer Program takes place in Berlin with one week of travel to Munich and vicinity. Students wishing to participate must have beginning knowledge of German (GN101). View the program brochure or learn more about Study Abroad from Education Abroad.
