Most students take a combination of JYM Courses and University courses.
All students are required to take Advanced German Language (JYG 3100/3200) each semester.
JYM area studies courses are electives taught at the JYM institute. They have been designed to bridge the transition from US-style to German-style university studies, and include field trips and excursions.
All JYM students are directly enrolled at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich) and have access to the full university curriculum except medicine and law.

A typical student course schedule consists of a combination of JYM and LMU Munich courses.
It is not recommended that students plan to take all their course work at the university, unless their language skills are clearly at the B2 level. This is especially true for the natural sciences and business.
Also Note: Courses at German universities often change from semester to semester, and the final schedule of classes (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) will only be available shortly before each semester begins.
Therefore you should expect to make adjustments to your Proposed Schedule of Courses when you arrive in Munich for Orientation, and you will need to inform your home school of any changes should that be required of you.
