Spring 2018 Group Study: Berlin Energies

The Berlin Energies Group Study Program offers participants a unique opportunity to engage in the study of German civilization and its dynamic culture – all in one of Europe’s most vibrant, safe and affordable capitals. Side trips to Dresden, Leipzig, and Potsdam will provide exposure to each city’s place in the overall fabric of German society.

Students will explore Berlin’s history and global influence through multiple museum visits, walking tours, film viewings, seminars, and everyday observations of German life. Understanding how a city works requires knowledge of its history and culture, since both past decisions and current cultures shape present-day urban challenges and inform political and technological solutions to urban problems.
