Program Design

The number of participants on this program is capped at 12 by the Herder Institute at the University of Leipzig, but we are allowed to request a few more places if there is interest.  Acceptance into the program is by "rolling admissions," which is first-come, first-served.  The program begins with two weeks of coursework on the Norman campus immediately after the spring semester ends.  Excursions built into the program, as well as the travel as a group after the first language session, allow students to visit places outside of Leipzig.

Program Requirements

  • OU overall GPA of 2.5 or above
  • One semester of university-level German language study or the equivalent
  • A passport valid through six months beyond the program end date, or a copy of a receipt showing that an application has been submitted. To access the U.S. State Department passport application, click here.


This program entails both direct OU credit for the course listed below, as well as approved transfer credit for the language courses in Leipzig.  More details about this and the program design are in the 2014 Summer in Germany Information sheet.  All participants will be enrolled in the OU course listed below. 
  • MLLL 3823  German Thought and Culture


  • University of Leipzig dormitories
  • Hostel or hotel accommodations during overnight excursions
