The Departments of Communication and Germanics invite students to apply to a summer 2016 Exploration Seminar based in Berlin, Germany.

Field outings will examine representation in the urban landscape, including monuments, memorials, and museums. Students will engage with professionals from various sectors to better understand contemporary political opinion, news, art, film, and advertising. Participants will earn six credits of COM 495/498 or GER 322/399.

Information Session: January 13, 3-4 p.m., Loew Hall 310
