Date: Thu. Oct 16, 2014
Time: 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM
Description:

Attend the Summer in Dusseldorf summer 2015 information session to learn how you can travel to Dusseldorf and Cologne in Germany and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Students will spend the majority of the time studying and residing in Dusseldorf, but also visit Amsterdam, Netherlands and Cologne, Germany on two day trips.   In Cologne, Germany: students will visit the historic Cologne cathedral, the historic city center, the Chocolate Museum, and the Roman-Germanic Museum.  In Amsterdam: students will experience the myriads of canals, lending the city the nickname "Venice of the North", visit the historic city center, and explore the Rijksmuseum, the most famous museum of Amsterdam.

Students with beginning language competency will be able to complete their language requirement by taking GER1121 (Beginning German II-4 credits) and an English/German-taught culture course (GEW4930-Discovering Germany-3 credits) for a total of 7 credits, and intermediate students will be able to take an intermediate language course (GEW4930-German Language & Culture– 3 credits) and GEW4930-Discovering Germany (3 credits) for a total of 6 credits.

This German culture course taught in Germany, includes discussions on various cultural, historical, political, and social realities of contemporary Germany.   Although the course will primarily focus on the Federal Republic of Germany (and to a smaller extent on the Netherlands) as it exists in present-day, there will be intellectual excursions into Germany’s past cultural history when necessary in order to understand and explain the foundations and manifestations of its current systems.  No prior German language skills are required.
