IPD SUMMER IN BERLIN

The IPD Summer in Berlin Program, a unique 9-week program, introduces students to contemporary German and European affairs, with a particular focus on the city of Berlin, its history, culture, politics, economics, and music. The program consists of language instruction and culture courses and is divided into two sessions. It is geared primarily but not exclusively toward students who either have no background in the German language or have completed the German Department’s first-year or second-year sequence. Organized excursions will take students to major historical and cultural sites in Berlin and other cities.

Please apply to the program here: IPD Summer in Berlin Program.
For financial aid through the German Department, please apply here for the Max Kade Scholarship administered by the German Department.

Welcome to our Alumni and Friends! Wherever you are ...

We would like to keep in touch with you and let you know what is happening in the German department. Please send us your contact information and let us know how you are doing and what is new in your life. We have established a scholarship fund to help our students take advantage of study abroad and internship opportunities in German-speaking countries. We are asking alumni and friends of our department to contribute to the Scholarship for Study Abroad fund. We hope you will consider a gift.
