Year Abroad in Freiburg
Students receive Vanderbilt credit for study abroad through the Academic Year in Freiburg, a language-based cultural immersion program, sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and the University of Iowa. Freiburg is a small, vibrant, historic university city in southwestern Germany. After taking a month-long intensive German language and culture course, students develop their own course of study with a combination of university and program-specific coursework. Students live in dormitories near the university, and participate in cultural excursions offered by the program. The main language of instruction is German. Vanderbilt financial aid applies to this program.
