Summer in Germany, No German Needed!

The UW System partners with the University System in Hessen, Germany. Hessen makes their renowned summer sessions available for qualifying UWSP students. Last summer UWSP students were able to travel to Germany and back, get five (5) UWSP credits, go on the planned excursions, and cover room and board for the month-long program at one of Hessen's many universities for approximately $2,500! We expect similar costs for this summer.

There are courses on many relevant subjects (see poster here). Classes will be taught in English and students from all over the world will participate. Selected courses may be counted towards a business major (intercultural communication, intellectual property law, business in biotech, European studies, and finance) and/or vocational interest in the topics offered at the selected ISU will greatly advance your chances for acceptance.


Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University, August 2013 (Also expected to be offered August 2014)

Study at Oxford University and gain hands-on experiential learning through the Skoll Centre, the Said Global Entrepreneur Network, the Centre for Mutual and Employee-Owned Business, and the Center on Business and Poverty. You will also have access to lectures from world experts on development and social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship refers to the practice of combining innovation, opportunity and resourcefulness to address some of our most challenging social, economic and environmental problems. 

Course topics include:

  • Understanding the relationship between democracy and economic well-being
  • Addressing social, economic and environmental problems
  • Learning practical approaches to eliminate the causes of poverty
  • Learning practical approaches to addressing real world problems, including a project to eradicate polio in the less developed countries
This program is offered jointly through UW-Madison and UW Colleges. UWSP students can register for either. The 300-level course from UW-Madison will transfer in as a three-credit elective in the major for any Business, Economics or Accounting student. UWSP students can also take a 200-level, three-credit course in English Composition which will transfer in as a general (non-major) UWSP elective. Financial aid will apply.
