The idea behind PCIC
PCIC (Pennsylvania Colleges in Cologne) has been operating a study abroad program for American university students every fall semester since 1988. Students from three renowned colleges in Pennsylvania take part in a unique learning experience. In addition to the intensive academic program with a core component of German language study, students have the chance to get first hand experience with Germans and German life. With PCIC, Cologne is the classroom and learning happens everywhere; on excursions, at cultural events, and above all by living together with a host family.
