Program Description:


UGA Exchange, University of Hohenheim

The roots of the University of Hohenheim go back to the year 1818. As a reaction to crop failures and famines, King Wilhelm I of Wuerttemberg founded an agricultural academy for teaching and experiments in Hohenheim which later became the University of Hohenheim.
Based on the founding idea, the University of Hohenheim has since felt obligated to the goal of fighting hunger and promoting high-performing and sustainable agricultural practices.
The current profile of the University is unique due to the combination of its three faculties (Agricultural as well as Natural and Business, Economics and Social Sciences). Today, the University of Hohenheim is an internationally oriented University focused on cooperation and research. With this profile, the University pursues interdisciplinary research concentrations in the following areas: Bioeconomy, Global Food Security and Ecosystem Research, and Health Sciences.

Program Reviews:
Spring 2017 Participant
The visit from Amanda Stevens was so fun! And I really appreciated all the program staff for replying quick to my emails about transfer credits and classes, etc. It was very helpful and also comforting to know I had a support base back in Athens, GA concerned about me.

Spring 2017 Participant
I felt very safe on campus and in Stuttgart. Excursions I took abroad with the intensive language course were well organized and executed. On my personal trips, I felt very safe as I traveled with other people and was smart about where and when I went places.

Spring 2017 Participant
Most/all meals are done on an individual level. I ate very well - Germany's food is pretty cheap and very high quality!

Definitely the people. Spending time with my international student group and German friends were how I really learned about culture, not just in Germany but in so many different countries! Also, the ability to travel in Europe for the first time while being totally immersed as a student and resident was a really great experience/opportunity.
