Germany: Culture, History and Politics

Program Overview:

This course examines history, politics, culture, institutions, processes and organizations within German-speaking Europe. Students visit several cities in Germany; the March program also includes study in Austria. You will attend orientation seminars, lectures and discussions, and complete assigned readings before you leave. You will take part in field activities once you are there, visit museums, experience German culture, and meet experts who will help you learn about Germany. History will come alive as you explore German locations through historical tours. In past programs, students have explored the Reichstag, Dachau Concentration Camp, museums, the Festsaal of the Hofbraehaus with traditional German food, music, dancing, and more, while earning 3 credits (Political Science 371, INTS 371) that fulfill the global perspective requirement and the general education multi-disciplinary requirement.
