The German program at South offers more than just its courses. Because faculty firmly believe in the importance of experience in the foreign country, the program requires study abroad for its majors. Since 1986, USA has maintained an exchange with the Universität Passau in Germany. Under this program, students can spend a semester or a year studying in the beautiful city of Passau. South also has an exchange with the University of Cologne in Germany.
The University also has an exchange with the Fachhochschule Worms (principally through the USA Mitchell College of Business). Students have the opportunity to spend a term there as well.
