Where better than the thrilling city of Berlin to study the making of Europe in the 20th century? You will not only explore the background and history of the World Wars and the era leading up to it, but you will also be introduced to the Interbellum, the Cold War, and the relations of Europe with Russia and the USA.
Several excursions will be organised in which you will visit some of the most iconic German landmarks. Being such a crucial city in Europe’s modern history, Berlin is not only the most perfect location for this course, it is also one of the most vibrant and bustling cities in Europe nowadays!
