Library Facilities

Students have full access privileges to library collections at all CUNY institutions. The Queens College Rosenthal Library maintains reference collections and current periodicals on the German-speaking world. Students can read up on the latest events in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Student Exchanges/Internships

Queens College offers the possibility of undergraduate and postgraduate study in Germany through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). New York area internships are possible through participation in the Business and the Liberal Arts (BALA) program. Students have also participated in the prestigious Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program, and have been recipients of DAAD and Fulbright grants and awards.

Queens College has an affiliation with the Free University Summer Program in Berlin (FUBiS). See the QC Education Abroad site for more details. See also for the most up-to-date listings for this program.
