|Program Course Information||
Fulda University in Germany offers several options to study throughout the year in a variety of academic fields. You can participate in a four-week summer or two-week winter program, taking one German language course and two seminars taught in English or German covering topics ranging including Music Therapy, Project Management, German Literature and Culture, Marketing, Health and Nutrition, and Social Work.
In the fall, you can enroll in a four-month program entitled "Social Work in an International Context and Intercultural Competences in Theory and Practice." This 15-credit program consists of several Social Work course modules, German language study, and a field-based internship. The language of instruction for the modules and internship placement is in English. Participants will first take a one-month orientation module, after which they will be joined by German students in their courses and internship placements.
In the spring term, you can also design individualized programs of study, choosing from the course offerings of eight academic departments with more than 30 study programs. You will have access to both undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, many of which are taught in English.
