A semester- or year-long program designed for juniors majoring in the humanities, social sciences, engineering, and the natural sciences. This program provides in-depth study of German language, culture, and society. The program begins with a four-week intensive Aspects of Society and Culture in Contemporary Germany course, which provides the students with at least 60 hours of intensive language training and excursions to various cultural institutions around Heidelberg. Upon completion of the Aspects of Society and Culture in Contemporary Germany course, students enroll in one course taught by the AJY center professors, as well as courses at Heidelberg Universität. All courses are taught in German (applicants should have at least two years of college- level German or the equivalent). Students will reside throughout Heidelberg in a dormitory or shared apartment with German students. Heidelberg is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. It is also the classic German student city— bustling with a wide range of cultural activities such as theater and dance. Heidelberg is located on the Neckar River in southwestern Germany—one of the sunniest and warmest corners of the country.
