For a quarter-century Wohlfeil has guided Duke students through the Duke in Berlin program
Jochen Wohlfeil Interview
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall --
Study Abroad in Berlin, Germany!
Duke in Berlin was founded at the Freie Universität of West Berlin in 1988 before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Since 1991 the fall semester has taken place at Humboldt Universität in former East Berlin while the spring-summer semester continues to be based at the Freie Universität. Students attend Duke University courses taught by German faculty and by the program’s resident director, Jochen Wohlfeil. Students with sufficient German may take courses in the Berlin universities. Qualified engineering students may take courses at the Technische Universität Berlin. The program helps students advance their language skills, deepens their understanding of German culture, and broadens their grasp of the social sciences, art history, and technology in a German and European context.
Non-Duke students may enroll in the summer program via Rutgers University, if they prefer; however, only those non-Duke students enrolled via Duke will receive a Duke transcript.
