At NYU Berlin, students experience a cosmopolitan city that holds a complex and crucial place in modern European history. One can encounter this past not just in the city's many museums and in the memories of its inhabitants, but also in its architecture: the palaces of the baroque, rococo and romantic periods, the monumental government buildings and workers' tenements of the Wilhelminian Empire, the massive ministries and Olympic Stadium of the Third Reich, ruins from World War II, the showcase developments-and the Wall-constructed during the Cold War.
Today, Berlin is at a particularly exciting moment of transition, reclaiming its historical role as Germany's capital and as the political, cultural, and economic intermediary between Eastern and Western Europe. Massive construction projects reflect this development and offer some of the most exciting new architecture in the world. Berlin is a thoroughly modern but affordable city with outstanding museums and a lively theatre and music scene; it also has an efficient public transportation system, an international cuisine, and a vibrant nightlife.
"The program was the perfect balance of academics while making the most of the cultural and social factors Berlin has to offer."

Study of German language is recommended, but not required. Students can choose to take two content courses taught in English. Please note that there are classes held on Fridays.
