GERMAN LANGUAGE ABROAD: PITT IN BERLIN
The German Department and the Office of Study Abroad will launch a new "Pitt in Berlin" program in the Spring of 2020. In this program, as well as in some others we have, students of varying language ability will enroll in a language course abroad commensurate with their language level. Their language level is typically determined on-site, however, so students need to enroll ahead of time, not knowing what language course they will place into. For this reason we are creating a generic course number and title, German 1904 "German Language Abroad," to account for these situations. This course number, in effect a "placeholder", will allow student to enroll in a language course according to the regular time schedule. Upon return to Pitt, students meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies in German to determine where the course taken fits into the language curriculum at Pitt and credit will be awarded accordingly.
