Is Germany an exemplar of democratic stability or a country on the cusp of another crisis? How could a country that gave the world Enlightenment and Goethe also give us dictatorship and war? Where is Germany today and where will it be in the future?
Students will have an opportunity to examine these questions up close and personal by traveling to Germany and visiting the three locations that are the center of Germany's past, present and future.
Visit Frankfurt (headquarters of the European Central Bank), Erfurt/Weimar (birthplace of German democracy) and Berlin (capital of the united Germany).
