Academic Year in Freiburg (video)

August 18th, 2014
The Academic Year in Freiburg is a two-semester consortial program with the Universities of Iowa, Wisconsin-Madison, Michigan and Michigan State. It offers students the opportunity to improve fluency in the German language while taking a blend of program classes and regular German university classes. The program is run according to the local university calendar, October to mid-February and mid-April to mid-July; an early session in September provides orientation and accelerated language coursework.
