Auf dem Kampus

At North Central we know you want opportunities to use your German in real-life situations. We have organized an extremely active German club which sponsors activities on and off campus. Considering our close proximity to Chicago, the German Club in conjunction with courses has organized excursions to points of interest in Chicago.

Im Ausland

Studying abroad is a great way to improve your abilities in German, experience German culture,Freie Universität Berlin and encounter different modes of thinking. In addition to our official program at the Freie Universität in Berlin during the academic year, students also have an opportunity to travel to German-speaking countries over North Central's D-Term.
