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.
