Winter 2021 Term in Tübingen

Application Deadline
Tuesday, September 15, 2020
11:59-11:59 PM
Off Campus Location
Beat the cold Michigan winters and study abroad somewhere else next year. The Tübingen program, which is organized through the Center for Global and Intercultural Studies (CGIS), takes place in the Winter term, and it is intended for students who have completed at least German 221/231 by the end of the Fall 2020 term.

The German department strongly recommends that you precede your stay in Tübingen by attending one or two four-week sessions at the Goethe Institut. This Goethe Institut segment is not part of the CGIS program itself. Please talk with an undergraduate advisor in German about the Goethe segment.

The CGIS portion in Tübingen will start early in March with a mandatory "Kompaktkurs" (6 credits) or a "Startkurs" (3 credits). While you will be enrolled for the Winter 2021 term at the University of Michigan, you will then take classes during "Sommersemester" at the Universität Tübingen (mid April - late July). You will earn 15-18 credits for Winter 2021: the courses that you take in Tübingen can be language courses for international students or regular university courses. Various university courses outside the English Department are taught in English.

Tübingen credits can be used to satisfy degree requirements for a German major or minor.

Please note that you must attend a First Step session in order to study abroad with CGIS (
