About the Program
Berlin is a place of new ideas, where arts and culture are a way of life, with galleries on nearly every corner and thriving creative industries. But don't forget, this dynamic city is also a center of modern European history—it has no equal for leaving its imprint on the political, social, and cultural history of the 20th century.
Berlin will be your classroom. Imagine learning about German politics and policymaking in class and then taking a quick walk to visit the Reichstag, or discussing Berlin migrant literature and then touring one of the city’s bustling Turkish neighborhoods. Wherever possible, our courses take advantage of the city’s many historical, artistic, and cultural sites, and several courses include course-related trips.
