The Program

The Wesleyan University Program in Germany, run in consortium with Vanderbilt University and Wheaton College, is located in Regensburg, a Bavarian city on the upper Danube. The program, established in partnership with the University of Regensburg, maintains the high academic standards and dedication to a sound liberal arts education for which its sponsoring institutions are known. The program accepts a maximum of 30 students from Wesleyan, Vanderbilt, Wheaton, and other colleges and universities. It runs from mid-January to mid-July, and offers a two-month language program followed by matriculation at the University of Regensburg for the summer semester. Students can take a variety of courses in fields for which Wesleyan grants credit. Courses in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are available.
