Germany, in the heart of the European Union, provides a panoramic view of the newly emerging alliance of nations and economies that have emerged since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. From our base in the Rhine Valley city of Bonn, LMU students will travel westward to Paris and eastward to Berlin and Prague. The curriculum allows for a wide range of study, including core courses, as well as upper division studies in liberal arts and business. Classes are held at the Akademie für International Bildung (Academy for International Education) located adjacent to the University of Bonn and overlooking the Rhine.
Because of Germany’s central location, students can easily travel throughout Europe with ease. The New Europe Program includes several excursions, so there is no planning needed by students. These excursions include a week-long visit westward to Paris, famous for its elegant shops and cafés, not to mention its romantic allure and explosion of historical art and its signature Eiffel Tower. Also included on this trip is the exploration of the medieval city of Bruges as well as Brussels, the capital of Belgium as well as the European Union. A second week-long trip to Berlin and Prague is incorporated to explore the vast German history in its recently reclaimed dynamic and cosmopolitan capital and visit the ancient landmarks of the Czech Republic serving as a gateway to Eastern Europe. Depending upon student interest, alternative excursions may be arrange to Spain (Spring) or Northern Italy (Fall). There are several one-day excursions to Frankfurt, Cologne, Bruhl, Trier and others as well, that take place throughout the program. Of course there is plenty of time for students totravel on their own to destinations of their liking.
