CC in Berlin

Welcome to the CC in Berlin program! Email us anytime if you have questions related to the program @ or Applications are due in Summit by March 15. You should also check out this blog about last year's program: 


The CC in Berlin program will take place in Blocks 1 through 4 in Fall 2022. There are no prerequisites, so students at any level of German can participate! If you participate for the whole semester you will take two German language classes at your level (from complete beginner to advanced, fulfills the all-college language requirement). In addition you will take a class on the cultural history of Berlin called "Babylon Berlin: From Rural Village to Global Metropolis" (taught by Profs. Chet Lisiecki and Ane Steckenbiller) and a film class called "Global Berlin: Film, City, and Identity" (taught by Prof. Baran Germen). Each course fulfills the all-college AIM requirement, Analysis and Interpretation of Meaning. "Global Berlin" also fulfills the Equity and Power Global requirement. There is no program fee for full semester students who are already paying CC tuition and standard room & board.
