New May Term Study Abroad Course "Global Migrations in Berlin"
In May 2016, the Center for German & European Studies sponsored a new study abroad course, "Global Migrations in Berlin." Seven University of Minnesota undergraduate students spent a week in Minnesota learning about German immigration history, law, and politics before studying in Berlin for 12 days. There they visited secondary schools, social service agencies, art programs, Humboldt University, and the University of Potsdam. Students spoke with migrant and German students, teachers, social workers, and politicians and learned about Berlin beyond the headlines.
