UGA Study Abroad in Freiburg

This program is open to all students, including those with no prior German language experience.

Freiburg has been known as a model for sustainable urban design and sustainable living since the 1990s, and many environmental technology companies that export internationally are located in or near Freiburg.

Students in the four-week summer program will study the German language and German culture of environmentalism, including the unique cultural aspects of communities devoted to and affected by sustainable housing, transportation, energy production, and consumption.

Please see the brochure for details. You may contact the program director, Dr. Heide Crawford for more information. Submit applications through the UGA Global Engagement website. Students will earn 6 or 7 credits, depending on the level of the language course they enroll in. The approximate cost of the program is $1,800-1900. See Financial Aid below for information about scholarships. 

Application Deadline: January 10 26th, 2024
