Our Duke in Berlin Program was founded at the Free University of West Berlin in 1988 before the fall of the Berlin Wall. All Duke in Berlin sessions - Fall, Spring, and Academic Year- are designed to accommodate all students, regardless of their prior study or knowledge of German. No prior knowledge of German is required to attend. The program offers courses at three universities: the fall program is based at the Humboldt University in former East Berlin and spring-summer at the Free University in former West Berlin. Note - Engineering courses may be taken at the Technical University in the spring.
Why Study in Berlin?
Duke offers two of the best global education programs available in what is today one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities in Europe – Berlin.
