Eberhard Karls Universität, founded in 1477, is located in the city of Tübingen, Germany along the Neckar River at the northern edge of the Schwarzwald in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg.  Tübingen retains its medieval character with narrow winding streets, a central marketplace and a genuine castle.

The program includes four weeks of intensive language study at a Goethe Language Institute, five weeks of language and cultural orientation in Tübingen, and courses in one of the many disciplines that the Eberhard-Karls Universität has to offer, including Education, Romance Languages, Mathematics, Biology, Business, and Law.  It may also be possible to participate in service learning while in Germany through an optional one-credit service learning project.  Students will live in university accommodations. The program is offered in collaboration with Antioch University and is offered for the fall, spring, or academic year. 

For further information, please visit the Antioch Education Abroad website. Students participating in fall semester need to be aware that this semester does not conclude until February.
