What better place to study psychology than in its birthplace!? In collaboration with Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg, the UNA Department of Psychology has recently developed a student exchange program.

Program participants will travel to Wurzburg, Germany and enroll in psychology courses (taught in English) at JMU as part of a one or two semester study abroad program. As part of the exchange, students will be able to complete coursework contributing to their psychology major/minor and transfer those courses back to UNA – all while paying regular UNA tuition! Students may also take German language courses offered at JMU free of charge.
