Berlin has regained its singular position both as Germany's capital and as a mediator between East and West. While it is also the site of the German LSA, the foreign study program enables students to experience it in new and significantly different ways. Few cities in the world can rival Berlin's current political and economic role, the variety of its history, the ethnic and cultural diversity of its population, or the richness of its traditional as well as contemporary offerings in art, theater, music and film. The New York Times has called Berlin "the most exciting city in Europe," but it is also a comfortable, livable place of distinctive neighborhoods, parks and lakes, all joined by a convenient system of public transportation. FSP students live with German families and take courses with the Dartmouth director and two local faculty members. The academic program, conducted entirely in German, stresses an in-depth exploration of contemporary local culture, especially theater, and is complemented by excursions to historical sites and an extended trip to Vienna.
