Hi. I am a german student who is going to study here in germany (media science and music science and law) but wants to go to an american college for a semester or two after having been at a private boarding school in ny for a year.

I heard of german departments or german houses at colleges. is there a way for me to apply as a native speaker in a german house?
which colleges offer a program like this or have german houses?

Thank you so much, nari

well first of all...which colleges are you interested in? I think u can live in an international house, but keep in mind that the people in your building will most likely become the ones u will be closest to, so if you want to live in a German house, that would mean you would be closest to other Germans? Why go all the way to the US to meet Germans? Ich komme auch aus Deutschland und ich moechte auch in den USA studieren, aber ich denke wenn ueberhaupt in den dorms wuerde ich im international house leben oder evtl. in den normalen dorms wenn das college auf das ich gehen werde sowieso a very diversed student body haben wird. PS: Woher kommst Du?

Of course I'd be first interested in colleges like Harvard, Yale, Columbia... do they have german- or international houses??

Der Grund dafür dass ich in ein german house gehen möchte ist, dass ich mir dadurch bessere Chancen erhoffe in guten schulen angenommen zu werden.
Ich komme aus der nähe von bonn, und du? wo willst du denn studieren? wie alt bist du?

ich bin 19 und moechte nicht nur ein semester oder so in den USA studieren, sondern mein ganzes Studium an einer Uni in California verbringen. Wie gesagt, ich moechte an eine Uni in California, am Besten eine UC...achso und ich komme aus Hamburg.
