Program Description:
Duke in Berlin was founded at the Free University of West Berlin in 1988 before the fall of the Berlin Wall. All Duke in Berlin sessions - Fall, Spring, and Academic Year- are designed to accomodate all students, regardless of their prior study or knowledge of German. No prior knowledge of German is required to attend.

Since 1990 the fall semester has taken place at Humboldt University in former East Berlin while the spring-summer semester continues to be based at the Free University. Students attend Duke University courses taught by German faculty and by the program’s resident director. Students with sufficient German may take courses at the Berlin universities. Qualified engineering students may take courses at the Technical University in Berlin. The program helps students advance their language skills, deepens their understanding of German culture, and broadens their grasp of the social sciences, humanities, and technology in a German and European context.
