Overall Experience
It was probably more worthwhile than any other trip I've ever taken. I think the most important thing I gained was perspective, and what it was like to live for an extended time in a country that is still modernized but very different from and with different customs than my own home country. - University of California - San Diego / UCSD View Entire Review

About

Few other cities on the globe offer such a rich and multi-layered past as Berlin. We will explore late 19th and 20th century history through extensive visits to Berlin's many museums and historical sites. We will get to experience Berlin's many diverse neighborhoods and local cultures. Berlin also has an extremely lively cultural scene with (English language) movie theaters, open-air concerts, art galleries, and theaters.

As a truly global city, you can get excellent Thai or Indian food in Berlin as well as such signature German dishes as the famous "curry sausage." Or you can do your class readings in one of the numerous sidewalk cafes while sipping a cappuccino and enjoying the lively urban scene.

The seminar does not require any previous knowledge of German or European history. All you need is a basic curiosity regarding the major developments that shaped the modern world as well as a willingness to immerse yourself in the life and culture of one of the great capital cities of the 20th Century.
