Sommer Deutschland

Application Deadline: February 10, 2014

This new faculty-led summer program provides Rollins students with an incredible opportunity to spend four weeks in the charming German city of Münster studying German language and immersing themselves in German culture.  The Faculty Director for the program, Professor Decker, will meet students in Germany and will oversee their coursework, lead cultural activities in and around Münster, and provide students with academic and cultural support.  Students will live in student apartments within walking distance of the language school, KAPITO Sprachshüle, where German classes will be held five days a week.  Small classes with hands-on instructors will help students improve their language skills while a range of cultural activities and excursions in the afternoons/evenings and on the weekends will give students a chance to sample different aspects of German culture and reflect on their experiences in Germany with their fellow students and with Professor Decker.
