German Language & Theatre
- Learn about German Theatre and attend cutting-edge theatrical productions in one of Germany's most important cultural cities

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.
Course of Study
Students will divide their time between intensive German language classes at the Deutsch in Deutschland Institute (DiD) and the Theatre course taught by a UNL Professor.
Students will earn a mixture of transfer credit and regular UNL credit. The transfer credit will come from their studies at the DiD Institute in Berlin - mainly German language study. The German Theatre course, GER 302, will be worth 3 regular UNL credits.
This program is open to undergraduate and graduate UNL students in good academic standing. Students must be at the 300-level in German when they apply. While applications from non-UNL students may be considered, preference will be given to UNL students.
