Transatlantic Summer Academy, Bonn

For more than ten years, the Bonn University has been host to students and graduates from North America and Europe participating in the annual Transantlantic Summer Academy (TASA). Founded in 1994 by Professor Lothar Hönnighausen, then Director of the North American Studies Program at the University of Bonn, the Transatlantic Summer Academy has always been dedicated to fostering an understanding of the importance of the transatlantic relationship between North America and Europe amongst future leaders and decision makers. The academy's aim is to develop an understanding of the common heritage of the people on both continents and of the common challenges they are facing.

In the course of its four-week-long program, TASA provides an intensive interdisciplinary program of lectures, tutorials, panel discussions and briefings in the fields of politics, economics, law, history and culture. The program is developed and conducted by a wide range of experts from government, politics, economics, academia and the media. Its schedule allows for a sustained contact with those experts and for the opportunity to discuss issues of particular interest to the participants. For more information, please click here.

This program is not for credit. Non-travel costs are covered by a scholarship.
