This 7-credit program is an excellent opportunity to experience the business and academic issues in one of the most important countries of the European Union. “Coggin in Germany” is a 4-week program at Cologne University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany. Classes meet four days per week (Monday – Thursday), allowing students plenty of time to explore the country on the weekends and get to know Cologne, Germany, and Europe. All classes are taught by European faculty in English. Classes will be held four or five das a week. The class schedule during the four weeks may vary, possibly including a long weekend.

Dr. Oliver Schnusenberg, who is originally from Germany, is a professor from the Coggin College and will be the UNF faculty liaison for Coggin in Germany. Dr. Schnusenberg has visited Cologne & CUAS on numerous occasions and has led multiple study abroad programs. He will meet with the students several times prior to departure to review etiquette, culture, and travel preparation. In May, Dr. Schnusenberg will also fly with the students to Germany and assist them with exploring Cologne for their first few days.
