Study Abroad


For a number of years, UVa's German Department and the University of Dortmund's American Studies Department have enjoyed a successful and productive exchange program. One advanced student from each department is selected to participate each year. The graduate student selected by UVa to go to Dortmund teaches two seminars in German and American literature, in addition to other duties. Since these seminars are crosslisted, being offered under both the German and the American Studies Departments, there is frequently a strong interdisciplinary aspect. The subject matter is chosen by the graduate student and approved by Professor Walter Grünzweig of the University of Dormund's Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik. The student chosen by the University of Dortmund to come to Charlottesville lives in and is a supervisor of the Max Kade German House. In addition, the student serves as an instructor for intermediate grammar and conversation courses at UVa.
