All students must achieve 3 semesters (3 courses) in a language other than their native tongue.
Students must have a short-term, academic experience outside of the United States (of one week or longer). Current University programs that would fulfill this requirement include the “Border Trip,” Belize (NDI 345), the Heidelberg@Heidelberg Summer Program in German and European Studies, Oxford, Seville, Alicante, and Cuernavaca. Non-Heidelberg academic programs can be accepted, but must be approved.
