Study Abroad

Students declaring a major or minor in the department are strongly encouraged to study abroad. Temple University has programs at the universities of Hamburg and Tübingen and Leipzig in Germany. Courses completed in these programs may be credited toward the German major or minor and in partial satisfaction of the International Studies requirement.

Students interested in Study Abroad should discuss their plans with the faculty advisor in German early in their academic program.
