2020 Curriculum

After individualized language instruction, all students and instructors come together in the late morning for the Grundkurs lecture series. In the afternoon, we offer seminars and mini-seminars, followed by evening workshops. Most courses are cross-listed and available for either undergraduate or graduate credit. Students may also choose the C/NC or audit option. Wednesdays and Sundays are free for excursions or other leisure activities.

The 2020 lecture series centers on the topic Traum und Wirklichkeit in der deutschsprachigen Kultur. Our curriculum is further complemented by evening presentations, films and lectures featuring our visiting scholars, author-in-residence, artist-in-residence, and guest lecturers.
