Course Overview

Students take a total of five courses during the semester and two courses per summer session.

All courses are taught in English and credits are issued by the University of the Incarnate Word (a regionally accredited U.S. university) so that students can efficiently work towards graduation while experiencing student life in Germany. Each course is suggested for 3 US semester credits unless otherwise specified.

ESC semester students are encouraged to also take one course at SRH University, the ESC’s partner university in Germany. The offered courses are taught in English and are attended by SRH international students. Courses at SRH University are concentrated into shorter 4 or 5-week blocks, and students take one SRH course per semester.

Additionally, students may take Intensive German Language Courses at all levels at the ih Heidelberg / Collegium Palatinum. Intensive Courses are held for 20 or 25 hours per week; students are advised to get pre-approval from their home universities for evaluation of transfer credit.
