Study Abroad in Berlin: Overview
Spend 4 weeks in a city that is a cultural and cosmopolitan kaleidoscope. Few European cities have undergone such continual redefinition and change. Berlin's restored identity as the nation's capital has been the driving force in both design and cultural diversity. The political and cultural developments of the 19th and 20th centuries are visible throughout Berlin's cityscape, reflecting both the history of architecture and various approaches to dealing with the consequences of war and destruction.
