Germany » Introduction


Germany’s “Schwabenland” is as picturesque as travel posters boast: heavily forested mountains capped by castles, towns with narrow streets and gabled rooftops, and valleys cut by the Neckar River and its tributaries.

The Oregon Abroad offers three options for study in Baden-Württemberg: (1) you may study German language for one term on the Spring Language Intensive program at the University of Tübingen; (2) participate in the 4-week "Tübingen Summer Course" in August; or (3) you can take German language courses as well as regular university courses in almost any field of study at one of fifteen different German universities for a term, semester or academic year.

The Oregon University System program in Baden-Württemberg has been in existence for over 45 years! Join the over 1,500 Oregon students who have come to call this part of Germany their second home.
