Each summer the University of Virginia offers a selection of German courses to over four thousand students through its Summer Session. The mission of the University’s Summer Session is to supplement academic year course offerings, to facilitate fulfillment of undergraduate and graduate degree requirements, and to extend access to the resources of the University of Virginia to students enrolled at other colleges or universities, rising high school juniors and seniors, and lifelong learners. UVa German Summer Session welcomes students from other colleges and universities.
In the Summer of 2014, the University of Virginia will offer German 2010 and 2020. During Session II (June 16 – July 12) students may enroll in German 2010. During Session II (July 14 – August 8) students may enroll in German 2020. In these courses, instructors will provide the linguistic environment that will enable students to acquire the fundamentals needed for meaningful communication in German. Instructors will also provide information on the daily life and the culture of the three main German speaking countries: Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. All four language skills will be emphasized: listening comprehension (in class and in the language lab), speaking (in class and in the language lab), reading and writing (in homework). These courses are condensed to two hours per day, five days a week. If you have any questions about enrollment dates or content in the German summer session courses, contact the UVa German Department.
