The Stanford Program in Berlin is designed to expose students to the vibrant culture and agitated history of Germany. Most classes explore Berlin’s unique history by integrating their syllabi with the rich cultural life of the city—public lectures, excursions such as the H.G.Will Trip to a recent or prospective EU member state, discussions with Berliners, museum visits, film and theater festivals, sports events, and attendance at community events are incorporated into the program.

What I Did in Berlin

My time in Berlin with Stanford was the most academically challenging quarter I have experienced. I say this because the courses were unlike anything I have ever experienced. The courses did not end in the classroom, every night my cohort had a cultural event to attend. This was both amazing and allowed me to really experience Berlin, but also meant that the classroom was the entire city, and courses lasted from 9am-9pm.

Berlin is both a political and artistic hotspot, so I often had the opportunity to practically explore my fields. There was always something going on that I wanted to see.
