Germany Field School (MLAN 2700)

Germany

Learn German in Germany! MLAN 2700 - Germany 2015 provides an opportunity to study German in the beautiful town of Treuchtlingen, Bavaria. Language study is combined with cultural activities and daily interaction in the community to give you the opportunity of a lifetime!

We are delighted to work with our partner, the University of Applied Management (UAM), to jointly offer this field school in Modern Languages, at their Adventure Campus in Treuchtlingen, Germany, about an hour outside of Munich. This exciting collaboration is designed to provide students with an international experience combining German language and cultural learning within a dynamic, experience-based framework.

Not only will students earn six credits toward their TRU degrees; they will also earn 12 ECTS credits toward European university credit, and reap the benefits of professors from both universities sharing their knowledge and expertise.

UAM is a fully-accredited university that offers students an interesting study selection with high practical relevance. It offers the opportunity to develop a personal and holistic competence profile. All courses are nationally recognized and accredited so the degrees also offer international connectivity. Check it out here!

The Adventure Campus is a beautiful residential campus set in a park-like environment, with comfortable living quarters, a dining area that opens onto a lovely patio where students congregate and socialize, and activities such as biking, archery, a climbing apparatus, and hiking.
