Study abroad opportunities
Each year, the Department provides up to 10 summer language scholarships to CC, Barnard, and GS undergraduates who have completed one full year of German language instruction in the department's German language program by the spring semester. Students are enrolled in a four-week intensive language course at the Internationale Sommerschule of the Freie Universität Berlin and are eligible to receive college credits upon return to the CU program and completion of the next higher level of German.
Calls for applications are announced in early spring semester by the chair. Details of the FUBiS program are available at www.fubis.org. Details of the most recent call for applications can be viewed here.
Berlin Consortium for German Studies
The Berlin Consortium for German Studies is an academic-year or spring-semester program that allows motivated undergraduate students to immerse themselves in German academic and cultural life by undertaking university course work in Berlin. After a six-week German Language Practicum, students register for one course at the Consortium and two or more courses at the Freie Universitšt Berlin. Academic credit earned in Berlin becomes part of the Columbia transcript and can be counted toward a major or concentration in German.
