Princeton-in-Munich, the Department’s summer program in Munich, Germany, offers three courses every June: German 105G (third semester), German 107G (fourth semester), and German 311G. These courses combine intensive instruction at the Goethe Institut with seminars on literature and culture led by Princeton faculty.
Requirements for Princeton in Munich:
- If you’re new to German, enroll in German 101 in the fall; if you then take 102 in the spring, you can apply for admission to 105G in Munich.
- If your performance in 101 makes you eligible to take the interim intermediate course 102-5 in the spring, you are automatically admitted to 107G. This track completes your language requirement in one calendar year.
- If you have taken either GER 107 or a 200– or 300– level course taught in German, you can apply for GER 311G; a brief letter of recommendation from an instructor is a requirement.
Best of all, the German Department is able to offer these programs at a remarkably low price. In 2013, the fee will be $2,500 and will cover all instructional costs, housing in Munich and offer a $1,000 travel subsidy for airfare. Financial aid is also available for students receiving assistance during the year. For more information on GER 105G and GER 107G, contact Professor Jamie Rankin (email@example.com). For information on GER 311G, contact Professor Devin Fore (firstname.lastname@example.org).
