germany faculty led students

This course introduces students to the human landscapes of contemporary Prague and Berlin, with reference to the ways in which these cities have been shaped by history. The thematic approach of the course examines Central Europe’s complex physical, cultural, economic, and political landscapes. Our travel program provides a first-hand view of two of Europe’s most important, yet dramatically different cities, and examines them within the context of Czech and German cultures and the broader European Union. In pre-travel sessions and while traveling, we will examine how these cities were shaped by Nazi Germany, World War II, the Communist period, and the European Union. We will also consider contemporary issues including the aftermath of Europe’s recession, the immigrant crisis, security, and ongoing environmental concerns. The ultimate objective of the course is to foster a basic understanding of European landscapes and contemporary concerns by using two of the continent’s most exciting cities as our classroom.
