Program Description

COURSE INFORMATION:

Students will transfer 3 credits of German language taken at the Carl Duisberg Centrum Sprachenzentrum in Berlin; the CofC course equivalency must be approved by the Department of German prior to departure. Students will also enroll in a 3 credit CofC course, GRMN 320, for internship credit.


PROGRAM INFORMATION:

This program offers students the opportunity to obtain an internship in a variety of professional fields, including, but not limited to, business, general administration, production, computer science and engineering, all while improving your German language skills.

Students participate in an intensive German language training in Berlin for the first month, and then conduct a two-month professional internship in their field of study. GRMN 320 is a reflective journaling course in which students answer specific weekly questions about the people they meet, what their daily work lives are, questions about the field and vocabulary development in the field.

College of Charleston works in conjunction with Cultural Vistas, who takes care of the students' work authorization and visa paperwork. They also arrange the internship placements for the students, and they work with the Carl Duisberg Centrum Sprachenzentrum in Berlin.
