Opportunities Abroad

Emory University offers many opportunities for students to study abroad during a regular academic year as well as during the summer.

During the academic year students can study for one semester or for the entire year in programs offered through the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) in Berlin, Vienna and Freiburg. Students in IES programs can take courses both at IES Centers and at the local university. These courses are treated as if they were Emory courses. For more information about the IES programs, please contact Emory College Study Abroad.

During the summer students can participate in Emory's own program abroad in Vienna, the beautiful capital city of Austria. The Department takes pride in the fact that it is Emory's longest running summer program. The courses offered in Vienna are taught by faculty from Emory and the University of Vienna. They include German 101/102 (Beginning German), German 201/202 (Intermediate German) German 370 A/B (The Austrian Experience) and Music 202 (Music in Vienna). In addition to coursework, there is a rich cultural program for all participants. For more detailed and most current information on our Vienna summer program, click here.

There are also numerous internship and fellowship opportunities during the summer, the academic year, and after graduation.

One program to highlight is the AmCham summer internship program organized by the department's Advisory Council. More information is available on the internship page to the left.
