KU Building

Katholische Universität Eichstätt Semester

Introduction

In the heart of Bavaria, in an idyllic village setting, lies the only Catholic university in Germany - the Katholische Universität. Though a young university, KU has been built on centuries of scholarship in philosophy and theology carried out on the same site. As is the practice in European countries, the Catholic University of Eichstätt is part of the state universities in Germany; it is also part of the brotherhood of Catholic universities around the world, including The Catholic University of America.

The nature park Altmühltal, located near Eichstätt, is well-known to sports enthusiasts and nature lovers. The relative seclusion of Eichstätt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning and practicing German, while at the same time its connectedness makes traveling easy.

 

Academics

Students enroll in an intensive German-language pre-semester course as well as four additional courses for a total of 15 credit hours during the regular semester.
