University of Minnesota

Minneapolis, USA
	

Hochschulportrait

Die University of Minnesota ist die drittgrößte Universität der USA in Bezug auf die Anzahl der Studenten. Außerdem gehört sie zur Association of American Universities, in der sich Hochschulen mit Forschungsschwerpunkt zusammengeschlossen haben. Weltbekannte Erfindungen wie zum Beispiel der erste tragbare Herzschrittmacher oder das Material GORE-TEX® stammen von hier.

Die University of Minnesota wurde bereits im Jahr 1851 gegründet und hat in der Zwischenzeit aufgrund ihres hohen Lern- und Lehrniveaus viele ruhmreiche Absolventen hervorgebracht. Darunter befinden sich zum Beispiel eine ganze Reihe von Nobelpreisträgern und Guggenheim-Stipendiaten.

Interessenten können hier verschiedene Abschlüsse im Undergraduate- und Postgraduate-Bereich erlangen. Viele von ihnen bleiben nach dem Studium in der unmittelbaren Umgebung, da es direkt in den Twin Cities viele Großkonzerne gibt, bei denen sie arbeiten können. College Contact vermittelt Studenten für Auslandssemester und Summer Sessions an die University of Minnesota.

Im renommierten Ranking der QS Top Universities gehört die University of Minnesota in 28 von 30 Studienfächern zur Weltelite. Besonders stark sind die Programme in den Bereichen Agriculture and Forestry, Chemical Engineering, Education, Media Studies und Pharmacy.

Das Academic Ranking of World Universities hat die Universität im Jahr 2014 sogar auf den 22. Platz von mehr als 1000 Hochschulen platziert. Sie gilt als "Public Ivy", was bedeutet, dass sie zu den besten staatlichen Forschungsuniversitäten des Landes gezählt wird.

Campus

Die University of Minnesota erstreckt sich über eine große Fläche in den Twin Cities Minneapolis und St. Paul. Zum University of Minnesota System gehören neben diesem Hauptcampus noch weitere Standorte in Duluth, Crookston und Morris.

Auf dem Twin Cities Campus befinden sich mit Abstand die meisten Studenten der Universität. Der Mississippi River fließt mitten durch das Gelände, das daher in East Bank und West Bank unterteilt ist und durch die zweigeschossige Washington Avenue Bridge verbunden wird. Alle wichtigen Gebäude liegen im größeren Teil, East Bank, der seinerseits noch in verschiedene Bereiche geteilt ist.

Der älteste Teil der Universität befindet sich ebenfalls hier und heißt Knoll Area. Er beherbergt vor allem die Humanwissenschaften. Besonders bemerkenswert ist auf der East Bank die sogenannte Armory von 1896, ein historisches Gebäude, das Ähnlichkeit mit einem Schloss aufweist. Aber auch viele andere Gebäude wie zum Beispiel die Pillsbury Hall im romanischen Stil, die aus Sandstein erbaut wurde, sind architektonisch sehr interessant.


Wohnen

Semesterstudenten können an der University of Minnesota sowohl auf dem Campus als auch außerhalb eine Unterkunft während des Studiums in den USA beziehen.

Folgende Unterkunftsmöglichkeiten stehen zur Auswahl:

  • Studentenwohnheim
  • Apartment auf dem Campus
  • Private Apartments / Hotels

Die konkrete Verfügbarkeit der einzelnen Unterkunftsmöglichkeiten kann je nach Studienprogramm variieren. Detaillierte Informationen findet ihr über die Links oder in der "Gratisbroschüre" zum jeweiligen Programm. Für Fragen stehen wir euch gern zur Verfügung.

Die Hochschulstadt Minneapolis

Minneapolis ist die größte Stadt des US-Bundesstaates Minnesota und liegt mit 380 000 Einwohnern in Hennepin County entlang des Mississippi River, direkt neben der Stadt St. Paul. Zusammen bilden sie den Twin Cities-Großraum. Die Stadt hat 24 kleinere Seen, weshalb sie auch oft als „City of Lakes“ bezeichnet wird. Das Klima ist eher kühl mit sehr kalten Wintern, aber dafür warmen, manchmal sogar heißen Sommern. Die Jahresdurchschnittstemperatur beträgt 7,5 °C. Im Walker Art Center kann man sich moderne Kunst anschauen, und hier gibt es auch einen Skulpturengarten im Freien, wo man die bekannte „Spoonbridge and Cherry“ findet, einen riesigen liegenden Löffel mit einer Kirsche an der Spitze, der zu einem Symbol der Stadt geworden ist. Außerdem findet man in der ganzen Stadt verteilt Skulpturen und Wandgemälde, und das größte Kunstereignis ist die jährliche Uptown Art Fair. Weitere interessante Museen sind unter anderem das Mill City Museum oder das James Ford Bell Museum. Einer der berühmtesten Parks ist der Minnehaha Park mit den Minnehaha Falls. Durch die ganze Stadt verläuft der Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, der einige größere Parkgebiete, Ländereien entlang des Mississippi River, viele Seen und weitere wunderschöne Orte verbindet.

Studienprogramme

Beschreibung

Im Rahmen des "Minnesota Semester"-Programms können internationale Studenten für ein oder zwei Semester an der University of Minnesota studieren und dabei Kurse aus dem regulären Studienangebot der Hochschule belegen. Die Programmteilnehmer studieren Seite an Seite mit den einheimischen Studenten und lernen so den US-amerikanischen Hochschulalltag aus erster Hand kennen.

Bewerber für das "Minnesota Semester" können zwischen zwei Programmvarianten wählen: Wer sich für den "Standard Track" entscheidet, kann sich seine Kurse weitestgehend frei zusammenstellen aus dem Kursangebot der University of Minnesota auf Bachelorlevel. Nur wenige Kurse sind ausgenommen, darunter Economics, Biomedical and Chemical Engineering sowie mehrere Businesskurse.

Die Kurswahl erfolgt bei diesem Track zu Semesterbeginn vor Ort in Minneapolis. Die Plätze in den Wunschkursen sind in diesem Track nicht garantiert, sondern hängen sowohl von den individuellen Vorkenntnissen als auch von der Verfügbarkeit der Kurse ab. 

Wer im Vorfeld mehr Sicherheit in Hinblick auf die Kurswahl braucht, für den könnte der "Theme Track" besser geeignet sein. Bei dieser Programmvariante entscheiden sich die Teilnehmer zunächst für einen Themenbereich und wählen ihre Kurse vor Semesterbeginn aus einer kleineren, seitens der University of Minnesota festgelegten Auswahl an Kursen, in denen ihnen ein Platz garantiert ist. Zu den angebotenen "Theme Tracks" gehören beispielsweise American Studies, Child Psychology, Communications, Human Biology und Political Science, um nur einige zu nennen.

Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten

Für ein Auslandssemester an der University of Minnesota können Studierende Auslands-BAföG beantragen. Eine Förderung umfasst einen Zuschuss zu den Studiengebühren von maximal EUR 4600 sowie Unterstützung bei der Krankenversicherung, den Lebenshaltungs- und Reisekosten.

Auch eine finanzielle Förderung in Form eines Stipendiums ist möglich. Semesterstudenten können sich unter anderem für eines von verschiedenen fachbezogenen Teilstipendien von College Contact (à EUR 1000) bewerben.


Voraussetzungen

Für die Teilnahme am "Minnesota Semester" müssen deutsche Bewerber das Abitur oder die Fachhochschulreife erfolgreich abgeschlossen haben. Alle internationalen Bewerber müssen zudem ihre Englischkenntnisse anhand eines standardisierten Sprachtests wie dem IELTS oder TOEFL nachweisen. Alternativ akzeptiert die UMN auch das DAAD Sprachzeugnis in Kombination mit einem Test vor Ort.

Die Sprachkenntnisse können durch eines der folgenden Testergebnisse bzw. Dokumente nachgewiesen werden:
