German Language & Theater

NOTE: The information below pertains to the Summer 2014 program.

Program Highlights

  • Learn about German Theater and attend cutting-edge theatrical productions in one of Germany's most important cultural cities
  • Improve your German skills alongside UNL students, and other university students from around the world in an intensive language institute
  • Stay with a German host family and learn about German culture first-hand



Berlin, a vibrant metropolis, offers world-class musical ensembles and theaters, as well as art and history museums. Located in the heart of Germany, the city is both Germany's political and cultural capital. Each of Berlin's neighborhoods offers a different cultural experience, from the chic young quarter, Prenzlauer Berg, to multi-cultural Kreuzberg, to the Museumsinsel in Mitte. While living in Berlin with a German host family, you will study at the Deutsch In Deutschland (DiD) Institute with other foreign university students living in Berlin.

Academic Program

Course of Study

Students will divide their time between intensive German language classes at the Deutsch in Deutschland Institute (DiD) and the Theater course taught by a UNL Professor. 

Course Credit

Students will earn 7 transfer credits (P/NP) for their classes at DID in Intensive German as a Foreign Language, and 3 regular UNL credits for GERM 298/302.
NOTE: if you are participating in the 7-week summer program and have not completed GERM 204 before the program begins, you will do the readings for the theater class in English, and will receive GERM 298 (3 cr) for the theater class. If you have completed 204, you will do the readings in German, and will receive GERM 302 (3 cr).


This program is open to undergraduate and graduate UNL students in good academic standing. While applications from non-UNL students may be considered, preference will be given to UNL students.
