    Semester- and Year-Long Programs

    Hamline has many programs that give students unique learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. Through exchange agreements between Hamline and universities around the world, Hamline students are able to attend our partner universities abroad for a semester or a full year and may extend the experience by getting to know the students from those institutions who attend Hamline. Examples of courses include:

    England: Hamline in York
    Offered in partnership with the University of York, students experience British life, living in the university dormitories. The unique program design allows students to take a course with a Hamline professor while abroad, as well as courses in their major or minor area from British professors alongside British classmates. There
    are also opportunities for internships in and around the city of York.

    Germany: Hamline School of Business Program in Cologne
    No prior study of the German language is required to spend a semester studying business in Cologne. The semester includes beginning, intermediate, or advanced language study; a unique “Business in the European Union” course designed for Hamline students and taught by Cologne Business School faculty members; and
    elective courses (in English) alongside German students in the Cologne Business School. Students participate in cultural excursions and field trips to meet with top business leaders and learn first-hand about business in Germany.

    Senegal: Université of Gaston Berger, Saint Louis
    Students study in French (and also take a language course in Wolof, the local language) in this historic French colonial city near the Senegal River. Hamline’s unique program connects students with a host family and gives them the chance to live and learn alongside Senegalese students. The community internship component
    of the program allows students to experience the local culture.

    Germany: Universität Trier
    Hamline’s longstanding program with the Universität Trier allows students to improve their German fluency, taking courses on a modern campus in Germany’s oldest city. A three-week orientation upon students’ arrival provides an overview of life in Germany and the German education system, and the university residence halls provide easy access to both the university and the city.

    Chile: Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso
    PUCV is centered in Valparaíso, Chile’s second largest city, which is characterized by its natural and urban beauty. Students can participate in courses alongside Chilean students from one or more of the school’s 53 academic programs or focus on language learning in the Department of Spanish as a Second Language. Host families
    provide an authentic look at Chilean life, and the school’s many sporting, cultural, and volunteer activities offer myriad opportunities to become involved in the community.

    Japan: Akita International University
    Surrounded by the beautiful nature of northern Japan, AIU is unique in Japan for offering an international liberal arts education entirely in English. Hamline students live in dorms or student apartments with Japanese roommates and eat in a cafeteria designed to be friendly to international students. No prior study of Japanese is required; students take level appropriate language classes as part of their semester coursework.

    China: United International College in Zhuhai
    Founded in 2005, UIC attracts students and professors from all over the world. Students can study business and the arts and sciences in English while learning Mandarin or Cantonese and living in dormitories with Chinese roommates. Zhuhai is located on the coast of China and is a short ferry ride across the channel from Hong Kong.

    Spain: Universidad de Jaén
    Universidad de Jaén’s new campus is located in sunny southern Spain. Students enjoy mild weather and an active student life, as well as many traditional Andalusian and Spanish fiestas. Living options include university dormitories or an apartment in the city with Spanish roommates.

    In addition to these programs, Hamline cosponsors nearly 40 other semester- and year-long programs throughout Europe, Central and South America, Africa, Asia, North America, Oceania, and the Middle East.
