For more than 40 years, hundreds of Calvin students have participated in the German Interim abroad conducted each January. This affordable 30-day program provides an in-depth experience of many facets of German life and culture, including extensive travel, home stays with German families and an opportunity to explore parts of Germany independently.

Participants engage with and improve their knowledge of the German language and culture on this study experience, which includes stays in northern Germany, Berlin, locations in former East Germany, and in southern former West Germany. Activities include four home stays, lectures, discussions, interviews, tours, and attendance at cultural and social events. Course participants choose where they will travel independently during the last five days. Course goals include active participation in course activities, growth in intercultural sensitivity, gains in mastery of the language, and increased understanding of various religious, political, and broadly cultural phenomena of Germany. This course satisfies departmental concentration. This course will fulfill the CCE requirement. Prerequisite: German 301 and permission of the instructor. M. Buteyn. Off campus.
