American Studies Leipzig Welcomes Its First BA Students

American Studies, Leipzig. 17 October 2006.

American Studies Leipzig has welcomed its first BA students. The Bachelor of Arts Degree Program has been designed in accordance with the Bologna Initiative of the European Union. The American Studies Leipzig BA Class of 2006 consists of twenty-seven students from around Germany. Almost two-thirds of the entering class has already spent substantial time (e.g. high school year abroad, au-pair experience) in the United States. Their reasons for pursuing American Studies are diverse, ranging from being fascinated by the country generally, to being a fan of its contemporary popular culture, to wanting to further a better German-American dialog. The BA Class of 2006 has gotten settled in to their new program with a Student Orientation Week that introduced them to the American Studies Community in Leipzig.
