Please review this document if you are interested in enrolling in any of these courses. You do not have to have been accepted into the Princeton in Munich program to enroll, but space is limited.

These courses combine intensive language instruction at the Goethe Institut with seminars on literature and culture led by Senior Lecturer Adam Oberlin.
