Vienna is the historic capital of the multinational Habsburg Empire. It is a melting pot of languages and cultures, and the crossroads between East and West. This program is run in conjunction with the German Department at the University of Illinois. Classes are available in either German or in English, and there are German-language courses available at all level of instruction, so this is an excellent program if you would like to take classes for a German minor. There are cultural programs available, including an optional ski week for those students studying abroad in the spring. Because of the ski trip, spring is a better semester for this program than fall, but the exchange is available both fall in spring. Students who participate in the fall will be given an early exam so that they will be able to return to UIUC in time for spring courses to begin.
The Department of Economics works directly with the Vienna program to ensure students have many options for economics and business courses. There is also an ILLINOIS Staff Member on-site in Vienna who will teach the German and Culture courses, and lead the excursions.
