Orientations

Orientations

Your experience abroad starts now! Before you’ve even left home, you will participate in a one-one-one Skype conversation with a program director who lives and works in Berlin. Our directors are extremely knowledgeable about their programs and cities, and will share information about your program, provide you with helpful tips, and answer any questions you may have. You will also have an opportunity to take part in an online webinar and connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, learn what others in the group would like to accomplish, review packing recommendations, travel logistics, and talk about the first few days of the program. And if that’s not enough, once you touch down in Berlin, you will receive an on-site city orientation with other interns on the program. This may feature a tour of the neighborhood, where to shop for food, tips on affordable living, an introduction to the transit system, a walkthrough of your commute, and even visits to markets and neighborhood eateries to help you take advantage of the best local fare.

CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple: to help you understand more about the program, and identify your objectives so that you arrive well-informed and return home having made significant progress towards your goals. Don’t worry – you’ll arrive in Berlin with the knowledge to succeed.

Students may choose between any of the 6-week courses offered through the Open Campus program in Block I. Sample course descriptions follow:

COMM 3001 BRGE (ENG)

Funky Berlin: Radio Production, Propaganda, and Story Telling (ENG)
The German word for radio is "Funk." This intensive, hands-on course teaches students to use radio as the medium to explore the history, places, and people of Berlin. Students capture the sounds and stories of this vibrant, creative city at the crossroads of Europe with a dark past. Storytelling and voice, listening and communicating are our themes. Students sharpen their research and reporting skills, develop interview techniques, and learn or improve their editing and production skills. Local site visits to historically significant studios and active radio production facilities introduce students to the history of German radio innovation. We also explore the important historical uses of radio as tool of Nazi and Cold War propaganda.

ARCH 3002 BRGE / URBS 3001 BRGE

German Architectural History and Theory
This course examines the dynamic history of the German architectural tradition, beginning with the baroque, and then proceeding through Neoclassicism, Historicism, Modernism, and ending with the rise of the “starchitect.” The influence of political, cultural, technological, and historical factors will be emphasized as influences on the process of design and construction. Throughout the course, representative architectural examples in Berlin will also be studied. As the German art critic and journalist Karl Scheffler wrote in 1910, “Berlin is a city condemned forever to becoming and never to being.” As those words indicate, the city is a particularly rich site to observe how numerous competing political visions and social movements influenced the capital’s architecture and urban development.

BUSI 3002 BRGE / INRE 3001 BRGE

German Business in a European Context
As the global economy tanked following the 2008 housing market crisis in the U.S., one national economy bucked the trend: Germany. What is the secret to the robust and recession-resistant German economy? How does Germany manage to “ride out the storm” of the Euro crisis and remain a stalwart of European export power? Can Germany continue to maintain its traditions of quality and innovation in the face of increasing global competition? How might Germany need to change to remain competitive and stable in the future? To answer these questions, this intensive seminar examines the basic structure and dynamics of German business and the German economy and addresses the following themes and issues: the basic size, “shape” and sectors of the German economy including a very brief overview of the history of the German industrial revolution, capitalism vs. socialism during a divided Germany, the “Economic Miracle” of the 1950s, and challenges of reunification and modern developments; government regulation and taxation and economic policy; the important role that trade unions and employee representation play shaping the economy and economic policy; how the German education and training system shapes the economy and the experience of its workers, managers and leaders; German business culture and practice and the importance of careful planning; Germany’s economic relationship to the EU with specific attention paid to the Euro crisis; and Germany’s place in the global economy.

ENVI 3001 BRGE / INRE 3009 BRGE

Global Energy Conservation and Diplomacy
The focus of this course is the global energy situation of the 21st century as it relates to its historical roots, to the technological advances in the last century and the current challenges posed as each nation-state vies to secure its energy needs for the future. For this purpose, various actors need to be taken into account, including governments, the private sector, multilateral organizations, as well as non- governmental organizations, in order to dissect and understand the dynamics of the global energy diplomacy. New sources of energy, such as biofuels and alternative energies, along with environmental concerns will significantly impact the future geopolitical situation in the world and sustainability of each and every country. As long term national security and energy independence will dominate the future international diplomacy agendas in the 21st century, particular focus will be given to the international negotiations among the various worldwide actors involved, and to the central role of Germany in finding alternative procurement sources of energy, as well as in European energy conservation issues. This course will include in-class discussions, case study resolution as well as an excursion to the German Federal Environmental Ministry and/or to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in Berlin to meet with experts relating to these issues.

POLI 3001 BRGE

Politics of the European Union
This course provides an overview of the process of European integration from the post-World War II era to the present. Students study the functions and power distributions of the EU legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government. Students also analyze the politics of policy making in different arenas such as the single market, the Euro, and external trade policy. Non-economic policy areas such as foreign and security policies are also addressed. Current dissensions and dysfunctions within the EU are examined and debated from the perspectives of democratic theory and collective action theory. Classroom content is supplemented and enhanced by debate meetings with EU representatives and other EU experts in Berlin, as well as a field trip to the European Parliament in Strasbourg and/or the European Commission in Brussels. The following are among the questions addressed by the course: How severe is the “democratic deficit” of which the EU suffers according to many critics, and how can it be remedied? What is the cost and the benefit of the increasing centralization of power with the Commission in Brussels and the Parliament in Strasbourg? What is to be learned, empirically and theoretically, from the EU as the world’s most complex political system currently comprising 28 member states – with possibly more to come? What are the achievements and failures of the EU, measured against “the idea of Europe”, i.e., the creation of a peaceful and prosperous union that resolves its differences and conflicts non-violently? How far should European political and economic integration go? Where does Europe end, geographically and ideationally?

GERM 1001 BRGE

German Language – Beginning I
German 1001 presumes no formal knowledge of German and provides an introduction to all elements of the German language. By way of a communicative approach – this course is taught primarily in German, but grammar instruction may be provided in English as we start out – you will learn to read, write, listen, and speak basic German. Additionally, you will gain familiarity with German-speaking cultures through exposure to various media and fun projects. This course will provide you with the basis for navigating a variety of simple situations in German. By the end of the semester, you should be able to speak and write in complete sentences about where you live, family and friends, and what you like to do in your free time. You will master fundamental vocabulary pertaining to family, school, daily activities, telling time, travel, restaurants, professions, and more. You will be able to express preference and opinions in both the present and past tense. Additionally, you will receive a solid foundation in grammar points that you will use during all future study of German (verb conjugation, asking questions, word order, modal and two-way verbs, pronouns, possessive adjectives, prepositions, past perfect, future tense, nominative, accusative & dative cases).

GERM 2001 BRGE

German Language – Intermediate I
German 2001 is the continuation of the Elementary German sequence (1001 & 1002). Like our elementary courses, this class is designed to practice and improve all four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) in a highly communicative classroom setting. We will systematically review grammar and deepen our understanding thereof, but will do so in the context of working with and through materials designed to introduce you to German culture.

Weeks 7-14

All students enroll in the 8-week CIEE Global Internship with Integrated Academic Seminar and then will have the option to choose one of the two elective courses.

Required CIEE Internship

INSH 3806 BRGE

Academic Internship in Berlin
The CIEE Global Internship program combines a full-time internship with an integrated academic seminar to provide professional exploration and specific skills development, enhance intercultural understanding, and a contextualized real-world work experience in a local or multi-national company or organization. The 8-week program includes between 200 - 240 hours of onsite internship project work alongside a 30-hour integrated academic seminar focusing on local business culture, intercultural communication, professional development, and linkages between local observations and global trends. Students will be assessed via assignments and activities that include but are not limited to the following: reflective papers, synopsis of research, collaborative discussions, individual or small group presentations, analysis of readings, class participation, and feedback from the internship supervisor..

CIEE Elective Courses

Students choose one of the following courses:

(GI) COMM 3301 BRGEM

Intercultural Communication and Leadership
In this course, you will develop skills, knowledge, and understanding that will help you more appropriately and effectively engage, communicate, and lead in local as well as other intercultural contexts. Course participants explore a variety of topics in intercultural communication based in the context of students’ experiences abroad, and practice intercultural learning processes that can be applied when working across cultural differences in a wide variety of common contexts. Students increase their cultural self-awareness and develop critical personal leadership skills that equip them to become more effective citizens and leaders in an increasingly interdependent world.

(GI) BUSI 3007 BRGE

Doing Business in Europe
This course aims to provide an introduction to the related influences of business, society, government and culture in the region and link these influences to students’ experience within their professional internship program and academic coursework. Using our location of Berlin as our beginning reference point, this course will review Europe’s economic and cultural contexts and major changes. We will explore the shared cultural history and diversity across the region (for purposes of this course, we will focus on the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, and Italy). Through small group work and individual inquiry, we will strive to focus on gaining an understanding of the major cultural groups in each country, their heritage and business activities along with the country’s current challenges and opportunities for trade and expansion within the region and globally. By using current business cases and media coverage of economic, political and business issues, we will focus on what we as outsiders to the region need to quickly assess and integrate into our business approaches for success in the region.
