A program for students of German.

Two six-week German language classes and a class on German culture and literature – this is what the IGSP has to offer. Start right after New Year, brave the German winter in a fairytale setting and learn on through springtime at one of Europe’s oldest universities! We have the experience of 500 years of teaching.

Three field-trips included, one of them a 4-day trip to Berlin.

Culture Class and Field Trips

The third class is a course on German culture and literature. A sample syllabus can be found on the program's web site.

Three excursions will complement the IGSP. These are trips to other cities and places in Germany, including a 4-day trip to Berlin.
