The University of Mannheim, Germany, regularly offers the opportunity for two graduate students in Sociology at Indiana University to teach one graduate-level class each at Mannheim during the spring and early summer. The specific courses to be taught are negotiated each year in discussions between Mannheim and our director of graduate studies.
In the past, IU students have taught statistics, qualitative methods and a variety of substantive courses. Students interested in the Mannheim Exchange Program are strongly encouraged to meet with the DGS well before the application deadline, to discuss the fit between the courses they are capable of teaching and Mannheim’s course needs.
The Mannheim Center also offers a rich research environment, and this opportunity will be especially attractive to students who want to develop scholarly ties with European sociologists or who have embarked on comparative research involving European data.
