The Global Education Office for Undergraduates and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literature, in cooperation with Rutgers University, offers a six-week, two-course program in Berlin. Directed by Germanic Studies Professor Jakob Norberg and Susanne Freytag, Duke in Berlin offers a range of elective courses in a stimulating and historical urban environment. The program is interdisciplinary in nature and attractive to students with a substantial interest in German politics and culture. The principal attraction is Berlin itself, the political capital of Germany and the economic capital of Europe.
The summer program offers an array of upper level courses in English as well as all levels of German.
Students choose from three tracks: English only; German only; or one course in German and one in English (the most popular option). Students with no prior German are welcome—either as beginners in German language or within the English only track.
Graduate Students in all departments are welcome to apply, and they may enroll in all courses. They are advised to apply for funding from their own department or from other sources.
