Program Overview

Program Description:
Intended for students with an advanced proficiency in German, the direct enrollment structure of the School in Germany provides students with the opportunity to increase their language abilities through constant interaction with native speakers. Whether spending time with local students in their classes, their colleagues at an internship placement, or with German-speaking dormmates, students use their language in a very real immersion environment.

While in Mainz, students take courses alongside their German peers at Freie Universität, one of the capital's two public universities. Enrolling in courses in any number of disciplines, students study and live in this very international, yet very German city.

Participants in the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad don’t just study a language—they live it. Many of our students major in disciplines other than foreign languages, yet all bring a level of proficiency that supports their commitment to language and cultural immersion. They sign and honor the Middlebury Language Pledge because they want the greatest possible challenge in a study abroad program and an authentic experience in every respect; academic, social, and even professional. Participants take courses in most subjects, often with host country students, intern or engage in volunteer work, and live with a family or local students. Indeed, at every juncture of their time abroad, students have the chance to "live the language" and immerse themselves in the host culture.
Setting Description:
For most of the second half of the twentieth century, Berlin was the fulcrum of a divided Europe. A vibrant and constantly changing city, it is now a center for cultural, political, and economic life, and plays a central role in the development of the European Union. A truly international city, Berlin also has a unique cultural profile within Germany and boasts residents from around the globe. The city offers anything a culture-seeker could hope for, including countless museums, a vibrant theatre scene and an arty counter-culture. And while Berlin is a large city, it features abundant parkland and a myriad of bridges crisscrossing the river; both features give the city not only a feeling of spaciousness but also remarkable beauty.
