PROGRAM IN BERLIN FOR STUDENTS AND FACULTY

Dear colleagues:

This message presents information about the
following:

</color><FontFamily><param>Arial</param>· American
University's World Capitals Program - Berlin Semester,
a unique study abroad opportunity for your students. Please share
the information with them.

· Opportunities for a cooperation between your college/university
and the Free University in Berlin, with benefits for students as well
as faculty.

<color><param>0100,0100,0100</param><FontFamily><param>Courier New</param>I. American University's World Capitals
Program

</color><FontFamily><param>Arial</param>· Some of you
may already be familiar with this program, which is
open to all students attending U.S. colleges and universities and
has branches in cities ranging from Beijing and Moscow to Berlin,
Rome, Prague, London, Paris, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Jerusalem,
and Santiago de Chile. The website for the program is:
http://www.worldcapitals.american.edu

· The Berlin Semester is offered every fall. Students enroll in
German language (every level available) and in several English-
language courses (Contemporary Germany, History and Culture of
Berlin, Germany in Europe and the World) offered specifically for
this program at the campus of the host institution, Berlin's Free
University. Additional courses are being planned for next year. ·
Local internships are available for academic credit for students with
fitting German language skills as well.

· A series of excursions forms part of the program. During Fall
2000, these included trips to Hamburg, Dresden,
Weimar/Buchenwald, Potsdam, Prague, and Cracow/Auschwitz. ·
Students live in local student housing or (more commonly) with
host-families.

· I am the Academic Director of the Berlin Semester program.
Please contact me if you have any questions (Dr. Dirk Verheyen,
dv1957yahoo.de) and encourage any interested students to do
the same.

<color><param>0100,0100,0100</param><FontFamily><param>Courier New</param>II. Cooperation with the Free University

</color><FontFamily><param>Arial</param>· I work
closely with the Free University in the design and
execution of individually designed or consortium-based study
abroad opportunities at the FU in Berlin. Many U.S. colleges and
universities are already here as partners, but there is plenty of
room for more.

· In association with the FU, I have developed a program blueprint
for a cooperative arrangement between your institution (or a
consortium of institutions) and the FU, similar to the set-up
between the FU and American University. Please contact me if you
would like a copy of that blueprint, which offers great potential
educational/professional benefits for students and faculty.

· Arrangements can be made for single-semester, full-year or
summer-only programs.

I look forward to hearing from all those who might be interested.
