Program Overview

Program Description:

The city of Berlin has a fascinating geo-political history: its destruction in World War II, its hostile division in the Cold War, the fall of the Wall, the reunification of Germany, and the growth of Germany as a major cultural, economic, and political force in the 21st Century. This history and its present importance make Berlin the ideal place to study International Relations, Security Studies, Sociology, Business, and Economics, as well as Culture, Film, Art, and German Language. Courses in this program take advantage of Berlin’s position as Germany’s capital and Germany’s position as a leading state in the European Union. The English-taught courses compare and contrast the pros and cons of the European Union’s open borders, of strategies to combat terrorism, and of the challenges and benefits that migration brings.
