Elective Courses (20 credits):
- We work individually with students to make study abroad opportunities count toward gaining credit toward their degrees at German, Austrian, and Swiss universities.
- The Germanics Department directly sponsors two study abroad programs:
- Spring in Vienna (a well-integrated program with a cohort of fellow UW students every spring quarter; application in November);
- Direct exchange with German universities in Tübingen and Heidelberg.
- Many other study abroad opportunities are available through the Study Abroad Office.
- Study Abroad is strongly encouraged, but not required for the degree.
You may graduate with departmental honors on your degree by completing ad-hoc honors projects in conjunction with four different courses.
