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

During the semester, the program offers three diverse academic areas: German Language, European Studies, and Engineering (Fall only). The intensive language approach allows you to complete up to two years of university language requirements in one semester. Additional courses in economics, history, culture, art history, literature, intercultural communication, politics, and engineering are taught in German or English to provide a well-rounded curriculum. You may choose to stay for one semester or a full year.
