Program Description:

Program Overview: During the fall semester, Duke in Berlin students select a language course and two of the other three electives offered. Enrollment in the courses is limited to Duke in Berlin students, however, students will be officially enrolled in Berlin 's historic Humboldt Universität and, thus, have the same access rights and privileges as their German peers. Students can also audit courses at the Humboldt Universität.

In the fall semester, a special program track is available for students with no previous German language study; other applicants for the fall must have completed one year of German language or have equivalent proficiency.

Although the language courses are taught entirely in German, the remaining electives will be initially taught in English and transition to German as the semester and students' proficiency progresses.

The fall program also includes a number of excursions to Berlin 's historic sites, Potsdam, Dresden and Prague.
