Program OverviewUSAC Luneburg

The Lüneburg program is ideal for students interested in learning the German language and focusing on European Studies—specifically Germany’s role within the European Union—or for fall and yearlong students studying Engineering. Through formal coursework and personal interaction with the host culture, you will greatly expand your language skills and knowledge of German society. Lüneburg offers students the quality of life of a smaller community without sacrificing the cultural resources and activities of a large metropolitan city. Lüneburg is also only 30 minutes away from former East Germany, providing a unique vantage point from which to study the dynamics of reunification. 

Program Focus


PSU students can participate in the summer session II program, earning 3 to 6 semester credits (5 to 9 quarter credits). Take advantage of this study abroad opportunity, and learn how studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom—because you will be in a different place. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are; use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You can choose courses from Intensive German Language and German and European Studies. The program also includes an optional tour of Berlin. However, the academic courses are only a part of the intended value of a program abroad. Participation in cultural activities, festivals, field trips, and an optional tour also form an integral part of the program.
