Summer SchoolsSummer Schools in international locations complement the global outlook of our programs at the Transnational American Studies Institute. Interested students enrolled in the American Studies program at Mainz can partake in three different summer school programs:
American Studies Summer School (ASSS)
“The American South”
The Obama Institute for Transnational American Studies annually launches a three-week American Studies Summer School that visits several southern states including Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Tennessee. This educational venture from end of July to mid-August offers courses in language, literature, and cultural studies. Starting in Little Rock, AR, and ending in Washington, D.C., the summer school studies the Civil Rights Movement, the History of Food and Music in the American South, and Southern Writers. Students benefit from lectures, readings, and films as well as from on-site learning.
Course credits as well as independent studies credits can be earned.
The application deadline for each year is January 31. For information on the application process, please visit the annual info session which is announced in the News & Events section. For further information, please follow this link or contact Julia Velten.
