Program Reviews:
Academic Year 2012 Participant
I found it really rewarding that, even though having classes in German was difficult, having all my classes in the German language really helped me to learn the language and become fairly fluent.

Academic Year 2012 Participant
Immersing myself in the culture and the language. My German is better now than it has ever been or ever would have been had I not gone to Stuttgart.

Academic Year 2013 Participant
The most rewarding part of the study abroad experience was the amount of time I spent out of the US. In 14 months, I was able to really immerse myself into European culture and meet people from all over the world.
