BAIT Admissions FAQ

International mobility has become an essential component in today’s higher education and professional development landscape. American Studies Leipzig (ASL) has thus launched the BA International Track (BAIT), a three-year BA program in American Studies for international students who do not yet speak German.

BAIT offers international students a multifaceted and challenging program that explores the United States—its history, culture, politics, literature, and language—from multiple perspectives and in multiple contexts. The BA in American Studies covers four branches: 1) Literature and Culture, 2) Society, History, and Politics, 3) Ethnicity and Diversity, 4) Language and Society. After taking introductory courses, students may specialize among either of these.
