Berlin is one of the most fascinating places in Europe, both for its history and for its status as a cultural metropolis. Berlin has a vibrant arts scene, global startups, a rich and progressive music culture, and countless culinary options. 

Like no other German city, Berlin bears the scars of recent German history and carries the hopes and promises of a united Germany. With its important role in the Weimar Republic, its sites of political decisions and destruction during the last World War, and the fact that for over forty years it served as the symbol for Germany's division, Berlin is an excellent place for students who want to become familiar with German and European history. The current European economic crisis is once more driving home the fact that Germany continues to be at the forefront of European politics and economics. Coursework focuses on language, history and theater.

Period: Fall term, odd years.
3 credits
