The Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) Mosbach campus at Bad Mergentheim offers a new German language program for UNF students! Language classes take place in an actual German castle, beginning in early January and ending in late March. The possibility exists to take business courses taught in English after the language program ends in workshop-style 2-week modules from early April to late June.
Upon successful completion of the intensive German language program, students will earn German language credit through the advanced intermediate level. This will complete the foreign language sequence for International Business and International Studies majors. All participants are required to attend the pre-departure meetings listed below.*
The intensive German language program must have 5 UNF students enrolled in order to run. A maximum of 8 UNF students may participate each spring semester.
Students participating in this program will take all courses listed below:
*Students who have completed Beginning German II are welcome to participate. During the first 4 weeks, these students will complete additional coursework and receive credit for lower-level Aspects of German Language & Culture instead of Beginners Level 2. They will take intermediate courses along with the rest of the cohort.
