Once a fiercely contested battleground, today's Berlin offers solutions for a more peaceful world. Progressive and environmental politicians and advocates have found their home in Berlin. In this program, students take four seminars that cover both current politics with a focus on underrepresented minorities and the environment as well as Germany’s history, looking at German colonialism as well as Nazi and communist dictatorships.
From early February to early May 2024, students take up to 4 seminars and an optional internship.
Students may also intern with German organizations that work with refugees or sustainability/environmental issues. Our local partner in Berlin is the world-renowned Ecologic Institute, an environmental think tank.
Students will be housed in central Berlin in shared apartments or with a host family. Students will explore Europe on class excursions. Past trips included weekend-long visits to Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Dessau.
