German Studies Faculty can advise on a variety of other options for study in a German-speaking country.
Students interested in study abroad in German-speaking countries must request pre-certification for German Studies course credits prior to their departure. Please make an appointment with the German studies coordinator.
Upon return, students requesting German studies credits for coursework done abroad must enroll in at least one advanced German studies course at Swarthmore.
