Students are encouraged to study abroad, usually in their Junior Year, choosing from a broad selection of programs approved by the College's Office of Off-Campus Study.

In recent years, students have studied in Berlin and Vienna with the IES programs, at the American Junior Year in Heidelberg Program, and in Marburg with the Millersville State University Program. Several have also attended German languageimmersion summer programs in Goethe Institutes throughout Germany. Their study in Germany and Austria has enabled many to participate in work internships abroad in interdisciplinary settings.

Our Department offers one summer stipend to a major or minor to complete a project or course of study in a foreign country after the sophomore year. In addition, any student with a proficiency in German may compete for the Peter and Irene Seadle Summer Travel Stipend for academic work in a German-speaking country in the summer after his or her junior year.
