Berlin is today Germany's dynamic, cosmopolitan and creative capital where many lifestyle choices have become possible. East meets West, tradition and innovation coexist in the metropolis at the heart of a changing Europe. Germany's largest city is a land of opportunities waiting to be seized in areas as wide and diverse as media and entertainment, culture, research and development, science and industry.


Students interested in spending a semester or year in the exciting capital of Germany need to plan their time abroad carefully and should consult their academic advisor and the International Programs Office as early as possible.
