Dive into the thrilling history of Europe and its role on the world stage, studying in three of the most exciting cities of Europe! The three combined courses, designed by three excellent European universities, will provide an exciting overview of the history and workings of Europe. Emerge yourself in Europe’s history and culture and visit many of the tangible remains during field trips. The program is hosted by Freie Universität Berlin International Summer and Winter University (FUBiS), the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome and Utrecht Summer School.
Multi-City: The full six weeks “The Making of Europe” track includes the program in Rome, Utrecht and Berlin. Less time? Choose the four weeks track “The Rise of Modern Europe” (Utrecht, Berlin) or a two weeks stand-alone course “The Long 20th Century” in Berlin. The topics addressed in Rome, Utrecht and Berlin strongly tie into the specific locations, but also focus on the broader European historical developments.
Our course in Berlin: “The Long 20th Century” lays its focus on Europe’s most recent history. Crucial historic events affected Europe in the past century: Two World Wars, the rise and fall of communism and the birth of the European Union. Against this historic background, the course analyzes some of the challenges Europe faces today, such as migration, climate change and democratic deficit. The city of Berlin will be in the spotlight as a city of former crisis with great promises for a better future.
The detailed day-to-day program for all three-city courses is available here.
