Course Listings at the Baden-Württemberg Universities

Course listings for future semesters will only be posted 4-6 weeks prior to the start of the semester. While professors are free to teach a wide variety of courses according to their areas of academic interest, basic courses in many fields of study will be offered each or every other semester. Since you will not have a confirmed class schedule before departing for Germany, it is a good idea to get pre-approval for areas of study rather than for specific courses.
Most courses in English Departments at these universities are taught in English. In addition, all of the universities offer individual courses taught in English in various departments and academic areas each year.
Please note that most searches will bring up Bachelor and Master/PhD level courses. Make sure to read each description carefully to determine the course level. A “Hauptseminar” or “Oberseminar” as well as colloquia are graduate-level courses and undergraduates will only be admitted if they can show a strong background in the field.
