Wide-range of German language and content courses.
Excursions to some of Germany’s most beautiful and culturally rich cities. No previous knowledge of German is required; language courses are offered on all levels and the program is also open to students who want to take courses in English only.
Once divided, Berlin is once again the center of German politics, arts, and cultural life and the gateway to Eastern Europe. It is an East-West metropolis with something for everyone. Traverse the streets of Berlin and you will find the monumental Brandenburg Gate, the shops and bustling commerce on the Ku'damm and the hip Hackesche Hoefe district. In the Tiergarten the "House of World Cultures" presents a wealth of events and exhibitions featuring cultures from outside Europe.
Program costs include numerous organized tours and weekend trips to other German cities and to leading museums and cultural institutions. These places will afford you a first-hand experience of Germany’s rich cultural heritage, Germany's emerging leadership role in the European Union, as well as its coming to terms with the legacy of National Socialism and the Holocaust and the lasting effects of the Cold War division on the country from 1945 through the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
Courses taught in German will be offered at the elementary, intermediate, and advanced levels. German-language topics courses are also available for students who place out of these levels of the language track. There is no German language prerequisite to be eligible for this program; beginning German language students are welcome.
Courses taught in English on a broad array of topics will give a unique, yet thorough, insight into German culture and society at the beginning of the 21st century.
Both the courses taught in German and those taught in English may be counted toward the relevant requirements for the German major and minor, as well as toward the degree requirements of other Rutgers programs. Students should consult with their degree program’s Undergraduate Director in advance to confirm how credits will be applied to that program.
Students can learn more about course offerings here.
