Program Description:

Germany/Austria Study Tour

Vienna, Austria; Nuremberg and Berlin, Germany

Spring Break March 3-13, 2016

Students interested in this program must first receive permission to participate from the program leaders: Dr. Joseph Kunkel or Dr. Nadja Kramer.



Join us for an exciting study tour of Germany. For eleven days over spring break (March 3-13, 2014) we will visit Germany and Austria. But this will be much more than a tour of famous places and beautiful sites.

Enroll for a special Art or Political Science class spring semester 2016 to learn and prepare for the tour. Then, over spring break, we will travel to Germany and Austria as one group. We will visit Nuremberg, Berlin, and Vienna. Learning on tour will be guided by excellent local guides and your professors with maximum free time for independent exploration and learning.

Each professor will apply their special expertise to help you develop an intellectual context for your travel experiences. Professor Joseph Kunkel’s Political Science class will learn about the government, political history, culture and customs of these Germanic countries. Professor Nadja Krämer will offer a look at “the city” as a geographic and cultural space in which urban experiences are reflected in art, film, literature and architecture as well as culture and customs.  While the professors and their classes will meet separately some days, each week they will join together to get acquainted, prepare for travel and share their learning.
