An Invitation

Join us for an exciting study tour to Germany and Austria. For eleven days over spring break (March 3-13, 2016) we will visit Vienna Austria and Nuremberg and Berlin Germany. But this will be much more than a tour of beautiful sights and famous places.

During spring semester 2016 students can enroll in a class to learn about the countries of Austria and Germany, and prepare for the tour. Then, over spring break, we will travel together as a class.

Professor Joseph Kunkel’s Political Science class will learn about the government, political history, culture and customs of these Germanic countries. Professor Krämer will offer a look at "the city" as a geographic and cultural space in which urban experiences are reflected in art, film. literature and architecture as well as culture and customs. While the professors and their classes will meet separately some days, each week they will join together to get acquainted, prepare for travel and share their learning.  

In Germany and Austria, in addition to some expertly guided tours, you will have quite a bit of free time to explore the many important historical and cultural sites as well as opportunities for shopping and dining.
