Once at the frontlines of a deeply divided world, today Berlin has emerged as an open and diverse metropolis. Berlin is at the forefront of tackling some of the most pressing challenges of our time such as global climate change and the displacement of people worldwide. With a focus on political topics, this program is ideally suited for PSCI and INTS students.
From mid-February to mid-May 2023, students take up to 4 seminars on global environmental destruction, dictatorships, the war in Ukraine, and on LGBTQ+ politics in Berlin.
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.
