Wheaton in Germany

This information is based on the most recent offering of the program and will be updated when offered next.

Program Overview

Wheaton in Germany is a summer study program enabling students to build their language proficiency in German, deepen their learning through visits to sites of historical interest, and develop their intercultural competence through interactions with native speakers. Based in Munich and Berlin, the program also includes side travel to other German cities and Vienna, Austria.

Students develop their proficiency in German while deepening their understanding of German history and contemporary culture. Intentional interactions with Christians in Germany from a wide variety of confessional/ecclesial backgrounds have been a key component of the Wheaton in Germany program since its inception in 1977. Students participate in worship in both "free" and "established" church congregations, and they engage practicing Christians from many walks of life in home stay settings, group activities, and service learning placements.

Program offering is subject to internal approval, minimum enrollment, and ongoing evaluation of local conditions, including enhanced health and safety reviews.
