Vanderbilt in Berlin is a seven-week summer program held in conjunction with the Free University of Berlin (Freie Universität Berlin).
Vanderbilt students participate in a program called the Freie Universität Berlin International Summer and Winter University, or FUBiS.
Students from all over the world come together to study German and promote international education and cross-cultural understanding.
For the past ten years, Vanderbilt students have had rewarding experiences they still talk about at every opportunity.
The program starts with a week-long course on the history and culture of Berlin (1 credit).
Following this week, Vanderbilt students join the other students at FUBiS for six weeks of courses (6 credits):
a German language course and a content course in English, two content courses, or one intensive German language course.
Berlin is the focal point of European affairs. In summer 2014, you can live in this exciting city for seven weeks and earn seven credits, plus satisfy one international component of AXLE.
Without ever having spoken a word of German, you will quickly become immersed in the language of one of Europe's most vibrant cities,
and you will have plenty of time to explore its exciting cultural heritage - politics, history, literature, art, theater, and music.
History is everywhere, and the city changes from day to day. It is the place to be in Europe!
