Students may also consider taking select courses at other universities in Berlin such as the Humboldt.  Berlin’s vibrant nightlife, art scene and fascinating history create an exciting environment to experience life in the new Europe.  The equivalent of at least two years of college- level German is required to apply to the program. Studying in Berlin for the full academic year opens the possibility of arranging full-time internships during the semester break in February and March.  Motivated students, with the help of the program, have arranged many interesting internships over the years in political foundations, government offices, hospitals, opera houses, public relations firms, and schools.
