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.
share their first-hand experiences about the program, what led them to choose the program, and some of the challenges they faced while studying abroad. Dive deeper into 'a day in the life' while abroad, as a particular student experience may help you decide if this program is right for you.
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.
