Study Abroad Program

CHEM 3200 Study Abroad Prerequisites include CHEM3361 or Permission of Instructor
Prerequisite: “C” or better grade in CHEM 3361 or Permission of Instructor. For more info visit this link.

This fifteen-day summer program is being set up to become a rich and diverse living, educational and cultural experience in Germany, a country that had and continues to have a profound impact on our knowledge and understanding of chemistry and the application of the chemical sciences. Students participating in the program will learn about the history of their chosen field of study as well as the recent technological advances in the field. This program incorporates visits at some of the most prestigious academic and research institutions in Germany (the Humboldt University of Berlin, University of Munich and University of Braunschweig - Institute of Technology) and two chemical companies (Thermo Fisher Scientific - Bremen and Bayer Pharma-Berlin). In addition, the students will participate in a broad range of cultural activities, including field trips to the German Museum in Munich (the worlds largest museum of technology and science), excursions to cultural sites in Munich, Bremen, Hamburg, and Berlin as well as a six day stay in Braunschweig (Germany's City of Science in 2007). Here the students will have the opportunity to visit and work in different academic research labs and to meet, exchange impressions and discuss topics of common interest with German students. They will also attend lectures and guest lectures. The students will use this opportunity to collect information for their projects whose theme will be decided at the meeting hold before leaving for the study trip.

Course: Three hours of credit will be given for the elective course, CHEM 3200.  Prerequisites include CHEM3361 or Permission of Instructor. NOTE: All undergraduate students must have and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA to be eligible for this program.

Studying abroad is a life-changing experience offering many lasting benefits. It allows you to view the world from a new perspective, to increase your language skills, to make new connections and to be an engaged global citizen.

Here are some thoughts on students' experiences:

"Traveling abroad is about creating new friendships, exploring cities, trying new foods, experience other cultures, learning new things and stepping out of your comfort zone. It's definitely a fun experience!"

“Initially, the idea was that this would be an interesting course where I could travel and earn credits, a means to an end, but this study has made a lasting impact on me. I was able to experience local culture and dynamics that I had never had the opportunity to experience."

“I had a wonderful experience. I had not only learned wonderful things about Germany but also chemistry in Germany. I’m already planning to go back but this time I will expand to nearby countries. Every student should experience at least one time another country to open their mind and view the world a little different.”

“This (experience) brought about a possibility that I had not every really considered and I am considering graduate studies there after I complete my bachelor’s degree at Kennesaw.”
