Harvard Summer Program in Berlin, Germany, and Vienna, Austria

The Berlin & Vienna program will be offered again in 2020

This eight-week program comprises two courses: one advanced German-language course and one cultural history course, conducted in English. Gain a critical overview of European literature, music, and the arts from the 19th century to the present, while exploring the vibrant capitals of Austria and Germany. Join other intermediate and advanced German-language students in strengthening your written and spoken skills while studying the cultural history of Vienna and Berlin. Your studies are complemented by frequent performances at the cities' concert halls, opera houses, and theaters, plus multiple excursions, including a visit to Prague.
