Academics

 

Academics

Courses:
Program participants take two German courses worth eight Emory credit hours. Students at the intermediate level will complete second- year German (201-202); and more advanced students will study Austrian cultural history from a European perspective (370A-370B; taught in German). Austria's position in the heart of Central Europe as well as a gateway to Eastern Europe provides an exemplary educational context for examining longstanding traditions and neglected connections in the region. Because of Austria's rich history, of particular interest is the exploration of socio-cultural phenomena that transcend current political borders.

German 201, 202, 370A and 370B are all HAL courses

GER 201, Intermediate German I 

GER 202, Intermediate German II 

GER 370A, The Austrian Experience (Peter Höyng, Ph.D.)

GER 370B, The Austrian Experience (Daniel Walter, Ph.D.)

Note: Students who wish to attend this program must enroll in a 1-credit course in the Spring 2020, GER 375 (Topics in German Studies).  This Spring course is mandatory.
