Corban Launches German Study Abroad Program
Corban College has partnered with a new study-abroad program in southern Germany where students can fulfill college requirements while studying German language and history, Reformation theology and a Christian worldview.
Named for its location in the picturesque Bavarian town of Amberg, AmbEx is now accepting applicants for spring 2008. The semester-long program begins in January and ends in April. It’s designed to complement a four-year college degree, with attending students paying tuition comparable with or less than the rates at their home institutions.
AmbEx offers students a unique mix of classroom instruction and travel in a country with a fascinating history. Two week-long trips, “The Land of Luther” and “The Land of Calvin” are part of the curriculum. Course instructors are qualified professors, some of them visiting from U.S. Christian colleges and others living full-time in Germany.
Amberg is a 1,000-year-old walled medieval city known for its schools – both colleges and specialized boarding schools for high-school age students – and its quality of life. Three American military bases are located nearby, an arrangement that has led over the years to friendly German-American relationships.
Christian college students from all over the U.S. will be taking advantage of the new German exchange program. The program is hosted by and received its accreditation by Corban.
AmbEx was created by Jerry Orr, a U.S. citizen who lives with his wife and family in Germany. He’s held a number of academic and tourism positions in America and abroad. He has patterned AmbEx after Master’s popular Israel-exchange program, IBEX.
