Study Abroad

By studying abroad, one not only improves foreign language skills, but also gains professional and intercultural competences.

The Department for the Anthropology of the Americas would like you to encourage planning a semester abroad during studies. Therefore, the department cooperates with different universities in Europe and Latin America and is able to offer various exchange opportunities. You have the possibility to apply through either the ERASMUS-Program for a position in one of our European partner-universities or to study abroad with one of the different cooperation agreements for up to one year at a Latin American university.
