Sewanee offers a number of different experiences that complement your coursework on the Mountain. Summer, semester long, and full-year programs are available.

Sewanee Semester in Berlin: Modern European Identities

This semester-long, faculty-led program in Berlin, Germany pairs an IGS course with a selection of three courses in fields, such as Politics, Art History, German, History, and Urban Studies. In partnership with the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES), this program examines Germany's (and Berlin's) postwar identity through a European lens and explores how that postwar identity is shaped through political alliances and international connections.

Sewanee Summer in Berlin

Sewanee’s Summer in Berlin program is a three-week course consisting of language classes at the DiD German language institute in Berlin and cultural instruction and excursions led by Sewanee faculty. These afternoon programs introduce students to the culture, literature, music, and art of Berlin through intimate neighborhoods walking tours. Trips to Potsdam, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage monument, and the surrounding countryside offers another dimension to the study-abroad experience.

Sewanee's Bamberg Program

In 1986, Sewanee established a direct exchange program with the University of Bamberg. Students enroll for either the entire academic year or the summer semester. Bamberg, a town of medieval Renaissance and Baroque buildings, is located in Northern Bavaria. The university was founded in 1972 and unlike most other German universities, it occupies some of the old buildings in the city. With about 5,000 students, the University of Bamberg is relatively small so close contact between students, professors, and city residents is quite common.

Jackson Cross Scholarship

Established in 1997, the Jackson Cross Scholarship offers assistance for Sewanee students studying abroad in Germany or Austria. These funds are awarded on the basis of financial need to assist with tuition, travel costs, and personal expenses incurred as part of study abroad, particularly in the summer.

Additional Programs

Along with Sewanee's own programs, the University has relationships with institutions that offer German language courses as well as programs in music, environmental studies, security and international affairs, European society and culture and many more.
