Binghamton University offers inexpensive ways to immerse yourself in the culture of Austria and Germany while, taking courses for regular Binghamton University credit. After two years of college German or the equivalent, you may enroll in the Karl Franzens Universität Graz (KFU) program taught by regular KFU faculty. Or, after one year of college German, you may register in Graz for a mix of general education classes taught in English and German language classes. Students are quickly integrated into the University, paired in dorms with Austrian students and taken on a number of excursions, including to Vienna and Slovenia. In Graz, students are free to take courses in any field and have them count for regular credit at Binghamton or at other colleges and universities. Some scholarship support is available.
Students with advanced proficiency in German (ordinarily three years of language study) may study in Leipzig, Germany, taking courses in their major or double major. Programs in management, economics, political science and German studies are especially recommended. Some financial support is available.
