Featuring linguistic immersion and cultural integration, the Freiburg Study Group allows students to pursue their academic studies at the University of Freiburg, one of Germany’s finest universities.
Prior to the start of the semester, participants receive intensive linguistic and cultural orientation during a month-long study tour of German-speaking Europe, led by a Colgate faculty director. Thereafter, students settle into the German semester, taking two courses with the Colgate director and two courses of their choosing at the University of Freiburg.
The study group is open to all students with sufficient German language background, regardless of major. Participants have received Colgate credit in biology, economics, computer science, history, music, philosophy, and political science, and more while studying in Freiburg.
