The 2014 Freiburg Study Group: Living Culture(s) in German-speaking Europe

Colgate University’s Freiburg Study Group is affiliated with the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg, Germany. Like any study abroad program, it offers students opportunities for learning about another culture and for personal development. With its emphasis on immersion and integration, Colgate’s program is specifically designed to give students the opportunity to develop and polish their language skills; provide them with first-hand experience of German-language culture in its variety and complexity; and help them integrate their language and critical thinking skills into their broader intellectual lives.

During the semester, students take two courses from the regular offerings of the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität and complete two further courses led by the program director and started during an extended study trip. This trip comprises visits to cities and sites chosen by the director to illustrate important aspects of the political, cultural, and economic development of German-speaking Europe and is a crucial component of the course German 457: German Literature and Culture. This Colgate FSG blog has been generated to post reports (forthcoming, in English and German) from our sites of study.
