Direct Exchange - Study Abroad
The Department of Political Science at Western Washington University has recently set up a direct exchange agreement with the Institute of Political Science at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. You can watch a short video clip about the University Duisburg-Essen on their website.
Direct Exchanges provide an affordable way for Western students to study abroad. Generally, students will pay In-State tuition and mandatory fees through their WWU student account which will cover the cost of one incoming direct exchange student.
The following documents list the current course offerings in political science at the University of Duisburg-Essen:
