UW German Studies and the University of Tübingen have a long history of exchanging students, faculty, and other collaborations. German Studies majors will most likely drift towards the course offerings in the “Deutsches Seminar” that is part of the Neuphilologische Fakultät and has courses in linguistics, medieval, and modern German Literature. There is also a large library with primary and secondary sources in the same building as the seminars. Students who are not quite ready to take classes in German language and literature with German native-speakers have access to the offerings of the “Fortbildung Deutsch als Fremdsprache”, a program located in the international office and geared towards international exchange students.
Students who go to Tübingen on semester- or year-long exchanges may be eligible to be nominated for a Baden-Würtemberg fellowship.
