Summer in Germany, No German Needed!
The UW System partners with the University System in Hessen, Germany. Hessen makes their renowned summer sessions available for qualifying UWSP students. Last summer UWSP students were able to travel to Germany and back, get five (5) UWSP credits, go on the planned excursions, and cover room and board for the month-long program at one of Hessen's many universities for approximately $2,500! We expect similar costs for this summer.
There are courses on many relevant subjects. Classes will be taught in English and students from all over the world will participate. Selected courses may be counted towards a business major (intercultural communication, intellectual property law, business in biotech, European studies, and finance) and/or vocational interest in the topics offered at the International Summer Universities (ISU) of Hessen.

Parliament in Strasbourg, France. This new three-week summer opportunity counts as an SBE elective.
