Daily Life

  • Housing

    Residence hall Most students live in an on-campus residence hall with a mix of CIEE students and resident assistants. Students live in double, triple, or quad rooms with en-suite bathrooms and shower facilities. Lounges and kitchens allow students to mingle over meals, cultural activities, study groups, and special events. They are shared spaces, with students enjoying the benefits but also the responsibility of taking care of them. Larger common areas are on the ground floor and inner courtyards offer comfortable spaces to work and relax.

    Homestay  A limited number of homestays are available, with preference given to those whose universities require living with a local family. Students can indicate their preferences in the pre-departure housing survey.

    Apartments Students may also be housed in shared apartments. Final housing assignments are solely at the discretion of CIEE.

  • Meals

    Residence hall: Students can prepare their own meals in the full kitchens. CIEE provides basic cooking utensils and cleaning supplies. Students also may get coffee, tea, soft drinks, snacks, and sandwiches at the on-site café, or explore the myriad restaurants in the Kreuzberg neighborhood.

    Homestay: Students who live with homestay families receive breakfast and dinner daily.

What you need to know

The program details

Stay in Berlin for the duration of this unique study abroad experience or add on blocks in other CIEE Open Campus Block program locations (Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Madrid, Monteverde, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatan) to experience more intercultural learning. Students may select one of six academic tracks: Business; Communications, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture; or STEM and Society.

Global Institute - Berlin. The CIEE Global Institute is in the heart of Kreuzberg, known for its energetic and youthful, international population, food, colorful shops, street festivals, and lively cultural life. A subway trip gets you downtown, while a 10-minute bike ride takes you to Tempelhof, the former airport of Berlin Air-Lift fame and now a giant urban park.

Most courses are taught in English by CIEE faculty; German language classes are available at six different levels; advanced speakers (at least four semesters of college-level German or the equivalent) might have the option of enrolling in CIEE content courses taught in German, depending on availability.

Academics

Click to Open

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

  • GRADING

    The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students are graded on the basis of attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and mid-term and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Each six-week course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Berlin when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

Requirements
Students are required to enroll in two courses each block. Students attending the program for all three blocks in a semester may select one block in which to enroll in only one course.

Course Notes

  • Courses are listed below by block and track; course list subject to change. Courses are in English unless otherwise noted. “GI” denotes courses that are offered at multiple CIEE locations.
  • Use the Course Comparison Tools to compare classes offered across all Open Campus Block programs for each block:
  • Mobile students studying for three blocks who wish to complete a lab course (offered in London, Monteverde, and Yucatán) will be required to opt out of one course to remain within the program credit range.

Academic Projects

  • Each Academic Project (Internship, Service-Learning, Directed Independent Research) placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements. The process is highly individualized and goal oriented. Students enrolled in an Academic Project will receive additional academic support that informs and enhances the placement experience.
  • Students applying for an Academic Project are required to submit additional materials during the course selection process.
  • To qualify for participation, students must be in the location for at least one block in advance of the Academic Project to prepare for and secure placement. As a result, students participate in an Academic Project in either Block II or III.

Language Classes

  • During course selection, students interested in a German language course will be instructed to take an online German language assessment to determine their proficiency level. Enrollment will be finalized on site and is based on assessment outcomes.
  • Students not enrolled in three-credit language classes may add the non-credit “Survival German” course to their course load during the on-site orientation.

Global Architecture and Design (GAD) Courses

  • Eligible students may request to enroll in courses offered to the Global Architecture + Design program. All Global Architecture + Design courses have pre-requisites, which will be reviewed by Center Staff for final enrollment on site. These courses will not be on the course comparison tool.
  • Typical Global Architecture + Design courses offered are ENVI 3102 BRGE: Design and Sustainability Seminar (Block I), and ARCH 3102 BRGE: Science and Technology Workshop – Computational Design Theory and Application (Block II). More information about these courses can be found on the CIEE Berlin Global Architecture + Design page. 

Note: This course listing is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract between CIEE and any applicant, student, institution, or other party. The courses, as described, may be subject to change as a result of ongoing curricular revisions, assignment of lecturers and teaching staff, and program development. Courses may be canceled due to insufficient enrollment.
