Program Description:
Germany Banner

Founded in 1959, the Middlebury School in Germany provides students with the opportunity to experience one of two diverse sites. By studying and living alongside their German peers, students have the unique chance to improve their German while choosing courses from the entire academic curriculum.

For most of the second half of the twentieth century, Berlin was the fulcrum of a divided Europe. A vibrant and constantly changing city, it is now a center for cultural, political, and economic life, and plays a central role in the development of the European Union.

A truly international city, Berlin also has a unique cultural profile within Germany and boasts residents from around the globe. The city offers anything a culture-seeker could hope for, including countless museums, a vibrant theater scene and an arty counter-culture. And while Berlin is a large city, it features abundant parkland and a myriad of bridges crisscrossing the river; both features give the city not only a feeling of spaciousness but also remarkable beauty.

Students in Berlin enroll in courses at Freie Universität in a variety of subjects.
