Metropolitan Studies in Berlin

  • City: Berlin

This English-taught program examines issues relevant to major cities today, such as architecture, cultural identity, gender and sexual politics, multiculturalism, popular culture, and urban studies. Wherever possible, courses take advantage of the city’s many historical, artistic, and cultural sites.

A 4-credit German language course is required for beginning and intermediate students. On-site staff help the students integrate into life in Berlin. Learning is enhanced by an extended course-related trip to Vienna or Warsaw and various day trips to German cities. During free time, tour neighborhoods and visit museums to gain a better understanding of Germany’s complex history and culture.
