Study Abroad in Berlin
Language & Area Studies Program

Why Berlin?

A center of modern European history, Berlin has no equal for leaving its imprint on political, social, and cultural history in the 20th century. One of Europe's most vibrant cities, Berlin boasts a wide array of museums, art galleries, theaters, and cabarets, and its taste for artistic and social experimentation and effervescent night life are as alive today as they were in the 1920s. A center for business, politics, and culture, and an ideological crossroads where East meets West, Berlin is the driving force for Germany in the 21st century.
