Semester in Germany

When you study abroad in Germany, you will enjoy the country's rich cultural heritage, wonderful parks and efficient public transportation. The city of Leipzig, located in the German state of Saxony, will serve as your hub.

During the days of the former East Germany, Leipzig was the second largest city in the East, after Berlin. As the home of Bach, Leipzig has for years been known worldwide as a city of music. Leipzig also played a foundational role in the formation of German 18th-century philosophy, known as the Age of Enlightenment.

As you study German language and culture, you will have the opportunity to grapple with the ideas of famous philosophers, scholars and artists in their original language. In addition, you will explore nearby cities and towns such as Berlin, Dresden, Wittenberg, Prague, Vienna and Salzburg.

While participating in ACU in Germany, based in historic Leipzig, you will have the opportunity to earn 15 hours of credit during our semester programs and 6 hours of credit during our summer programs.
