Our academic exchange program with the University of Osnabrück gives Bryn Athyn College students the opportunity to study abroad in Lower Saxony, Germany.
The University of Osnabrück offers a wide range of degree programs and is best know for its concentrations in cognitive science, peace and conflict studies, and democratic governance. Classes are taught in English and German, so a proficiency in the language is not a requirement for the program.
In addition to the strong academic offerings, students studying in Osnabrück will benefit from living in a cultural center of Germany which, despite being the third-largest city in Lower Saxony, retains its medieval charm. The rich history of Osnabrück, founded in 780 AD by Charlemagne, is visible throughout the city’s architecture and even in the University’s main administrative building—a 17th century baroque castle. The city is situated within a national park, giving students as much access to a natural environment as they have to an urban one.
Participating in any of Bryn Athyn College’s study abroad programs will provide a foundation for the understanding and appreciation of other cultures. Our German academic exchange will also give added depth to many areas of study including biology, history, art, religion, and philosophy. Students will have an opportunity to connect with peers from around the world—a lasting and invaluable experience.
