International Students

Leipzig University and the American Studies Institute in particular strongly encourage students from abroad to study in Leipzig. The American Studies BA and MA programs are certified for meeting the Bologna criteria.

Our American Studies program is of great interest for international students because it looks at the U.S. in a global context. Here, you can discuss the country’s culture, its politics, social change, and economic transformation in the context of global trends and developments.


Living in Leipzig

Leipzig is a vibrant, unique, and fascinating city of 500,000 residents. Located at the heart of Mitteldeutschland, the city is an important cultural and intellectual center where both the classical and the contemporary Germany meet.
