Wayne State's Junior Year in Munich is the oldest study abroad program in Germany. For more than 50 years, our mission has been to assist US undergraduates in their studies at Germany's top-ranked university, the Ludwig Maximilians Universität München (LMU Munich).
JYM students are enrolled at LMU Munich and may take coursework in any major, except law and medicine.
