The English Department is, by necessity, outward-looking. We have long-standing connections to dozens of partner universities in the English-speaking world and we encourage our students to study abroad. At the same time, many international students participate in our study programmes. The department also frequently hosts international guest professors funded by the DAAD, Fulbright, or the University of Maryland-Tübingen teaching exchange. The Mobility Option in the Interdisciplinary American Studies B.A. program provides the unique opportunity to study in the United States for a full extra year.
