Study German Abroad

We support a number of study abroad options of varying lengths. Program credit can be earned for study abroad, either through transfer credit for various study abroad programs or through an inter-cultural immersion experience course, which you can tailor to accommodate your experience. Every year, a number of University of Calgary German students are selected to participate in a work/study program that gives them a two-month summer job in Germany; others receive scholarships for summer study at a German university.

Summer School in Berlin

This program offers participants a unique opportunity to engage in German civilization and its dynamic media culture. Berlin is one of Europe's most vibrant, safe and affordable capitals. Participants will explore the city's history and influence on the world through museums visits, walking and cultural tours, film viewings, seminars and everyday observation of media use in German life. Side trips to Potsdam, Leipzig and Dresden provide contrast in both historical and current trajectories of each city's culture and place in the overall fabric of German society. Learn more
