The Leipzig Model

The Leipzig Model for American Studies seeks to combine classroom and practical learning to help students be able to engage their community and careers with well-founded confidence.

The Leipzig Model combines the teaching of interdisciplinary knowledge about the United States, repeated opportunities for students to participate in knowledge creation through research projects, the steady acquisition of international skills, and the careful integration of a four-track university career - classroom, research, study abroad, internships and service - into the realization of individual goals for community involvement and the working world.

The Leipzig Model for American Studies is the only one of its kind in Germany.
