BEST MAJORS: Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Finance, German, International Business, Management, Marketing

Also Good: Any student looking for a Business or Foreign Language elective

This program works well for the UMSL majors listed above, but most programs can work well for all majors if students can take courses for elective credit. Check with your academic advisor and the study abroad office to learn about your options!



As soon as Hochschule Bremen releases their course schedule for Summer 2018, the information will be posted here along with UMSL course equivalencies. In the meantime, you can check out previous courses on their website



After you have been accepted to study abroad you will be given directions to register for classes directly with the Hochschule Bremen. After you have finished all of your acceptance tasks in Triton Globetrotter, you will be registered for a placeholder course here at UMSL for the time that you are abroad.



UMSL students studying abroad on the Bremen summer program will pay a program fee that includes academic fees instead of tuition, and they will earn transfer credit. If you are a transfer student, please contact your academic advisor to confirm that you will not exceed the maximum number of transfer credits allowable at UMSL. 





1200 years of tradition and openness characterise the Hanseatic city of Bremen on the Weser river. Its most famous landmarks – the splendid Weser Renaissance town hall and the venerable Roland statue – form a joint UNESCO World Heritage site on the historical market square. Bremen’s world-famous mascots are the Town Musicians from the Brothers Grimm fairytale.

Exciting interactive exhibitions and science centres, insights into the technologies of tomorrow – Bremen’s is home to numerous projects that prove that science is anything but dry and boring. The botanika, Universum Bremen and the Ethnological Museum put the focus on learning by doing. And at EADS Astrium you can find out how astronauts eat, sleep and shower in zero gravity.

Not a month goes by without some exciting event taking place in Bremen – from the Freimarkt, Germany's oldest funfair, to concerts and plays, art exhibitions and the traditional Christmas market, whose Schlachte Magic stalls extend along the Weser river. (Courtesy of



Accommodations will be in double rooms at the Tryp by Wyndham at Bremen Airport.



The Bremen Summer School Program organizes various excursions, welcoming parties, and other activities including: excursions to Hanover, Groningen, & Wolfsburg, German cooking classes, and salsa dancing! For a complete list visit their associated page
