- This course focuses on modern German politics, business, history and culture. Through lectures, readings, and field visits, we will explore Germany's place in the New Europe, and how German and European political, business and cultural institutions were shaped and operate today.
The University of Tübingen is a 500-year old German university. Tübingen is located in beautiful surroundings just on the edge of the Schwarzwald (the Black Forest), and many of its buildings date back to the 15th and 16th centuries. The city of Stuttgart is only one hour away by train, and Munich is four hours from Tübingen.
Since the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin has undergone dramatic changes which make it one of the most exciting cities in Europe today. Its reinstatement as Germany's capital in 1991 provides an especially rich background for our studies of politics, business, history, and culture.
The Program includes several day excursions to cultural and historical sites such as the Prussian Hohenzollern Castle, Haigerloch (where an old beer cellar was used as an atomic research laboratory in World War II), as well as a long-weekend trip to Berlin, including a visit to the German Bundestag, Free University and the Berlin Wall museum. The course will be taught in English. German lessons will be provided.
- Setting Description:
- In Tübingen, students will be housed in the University's comfortable guest house, typically in two bedrooms. While in Berlin students will stay in a budget hotel or youth hostel.
