This program develops your German language skills while engaging you in Germany's fascinating history and contemporary culture through courses taught in German or English. German language is taught at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels, and a German-taught literature course is offered for advanced-level students. Field study plays a central role in the program, taking you outside the classroom to discover the rich heritage and contemporary culture of Berlin and Germany.
