Interested in studying abroad this winter? Apply for our Winter-Term program "Germany in the New Europe" in Germany!

"Germany in the New Europe" focuses on modern German politics, business, history and culture. Through lectures, readings, and field visits, you will explore Germany's place in the New Europe, and how German and European political, business and cultural institutions were shaped and operate today.

The Winter-Term program will take place in Tübingen, Munich, and Berlin. Tübingen is located in beautiful surroundings just on the edge of the Schwarzwald (the Black Forest), and many of its buildings date back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Munich, in the heart of Bavaria, offers students the opportunity to experience southern German culture from the famous Marienkirche glockenspiel to the modern architecture of the Olympic Stadium built for the 1972 Olympics. Additionally, students will take a day-trip to the concentration camp memorial at Dachau outside of Munich. Berlin has undergone dramatic changes since the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989, which make it one of the most exciting cities in Europe today. Its reinstatement as Germany's capital in 1991 provides an especially rich background for our studies of politics, business, history, and culture.
