TCNJ Heidelberg – Academic Program

Students in any major may study in Heidelberg, but the program is a very good opportunity for majors in the TCNJ School of Business.  To help these students, we have provided program planners for

  • Accounting (Fall 2015)
  • Majors other than Accounting (Fall 2015 or Spring 2016)

(Please note: Sophomores in business majors other than Accounting may also to study in the TCNJ Heidelberg program in Fall 2015. Sophomores in other School of Business majors may choose to study in either Fall 2015 or Spring 2016.  Sophomores should discuss their academic needs with their advisors to determine which semester would be appropriate.  Juniors and Seniors in the School of Business should not have any difficulty in finding courses in either the Fall or Spring semesters.)

Accounting majors should take ACC 201 on campus in the Spring 2015 semester, according to the suggested four-year sequence.

Fall 2015 (Subject to change – All courses = 1 unit = 4 credits unless noted below)

  • Students need to choose at least one course taught at the ESC
  • Students need to choose one topic offered during International Week at the SRH (available in August once in Germany
  • Students need to choose one course taught at the SRH.
