  LMU Grosse Aula Concert
by pedersdottir

Favorite thing: American university students have the option of taking their junior year overseas.

Munich has played a part in one of the oldest Study Abroad programs available.

Since 1953 LMU has hosted American students through the Junior Year in Munich Program. As of 1975, JYM is an officially sanctioned 'discipline' within LMU, so that participating students have wide access to courses throughout the university. In other words, JYM students are fully integrated into university studies in their field while having an American academic 'base' for additional support. This includes classes to improve German language skills.

The photo was taken during the JYM 50th Anniversary Concert performed by the Munich Youth Orchestra, June 2003.

Fondest memory: The JYM Office is located at
Richard-Wagner-Strasse 27
80333 Muenchen
phone: (49) 89 52 30 26 36
(behind Koenigsplatz, at Gabelsbergerstrasse)
