This program introduces students to contemporary German and European affairs, with a particular focus on the city of Berlin, its history, culture, music, economics, and politics. The program is geared toward students who either have no background in the German language or have completed the German Department’s first-year sequence, but students with greater knowledge of German are also encouraged to participate. The program is divided into two sessions: During Session I, students are introduced to contemporary Germany through an exploration of Berlin. Students take courses on German language, history, and culture, taught by faculty in the Department of German at Northwestern. During Session II, students have access to a wide variety of courses on German and European affairs offered by the Humboldt Summer University.
