New Study Abroad Program with Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf

The Kellogg Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Virginia Tech is pleased to announce that it is establishing an international partnership with the PPE Program at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf (HHU) in Germany.

HHU is a large, comprehensive public research university centrally located in Germany, with two international airports nearby. In addition to its vibrant cultural scene, Düsseldorf serves as an international hub for business, finance, and fashion, providing students with ample internship and job opportunities.

The PPE Program at HHU stands out as one of the best undergraduate PPE Programs in Germany. The program is highly competitive, comparable in size to Virginia Tech’s program, and has a similar pedagogical orientation and curriculum.

Starting in spring 2025, selected PPE students at Virginia Tech will have the opportunity to spend a semester in Düsseldorf, taking courses in PPE and related departments at HHU while exploring Europe. The courses will contribute to students’ PPE degree programs at Virginia Tech.

While most course offerings will be in English, we recommend that students consider taking a basic German course at Virginia Tech or HHU before their stay.

For further details, please refer to the program description, including application details, on the Global Education Office website. The deadline for applications for the spring semester 2025 is September 15, 2024. The application cycle will open in mid-March 2024.
