Program Description:

Freie Universitat Berlin Winter University (FUBiS) 2017

Freie Univ Berlin Winter
 
Location Berlin, Germany
 
Program description FUBiS Term I is a three-week intensive academic program with courses held on three days per week for subject courses and four days per week for German-language courses for six hours each. This amounts to a total number of 48 contact hours for subject courses and 72 contact hours for German-language courses. Because of the intensive nature of these courses, it is not possible to combine two courses in our winter term (Term I).
 
Courses
  • Improve your German language skills; a range of levels are available.
  • Expand your understanding of Europe or develop your law skills by selecting one of the general courses:
  1. For the first time, FUBiS will offer a subject course entitled More Than Just a Game - Football as a Philosophical, Anthropological, and Sociological Subject with Dr. Sven Rücker. The class will explore the cultural and philosophical references of football as well as the ludic aspects of philosophy.
  2. The English-language subject courses will once more include Law, Society and Politics in Comparative Perspective with Prof. Helen Hartnell and European Studies with Dr. Ulrich Brückner.
  3. The Spanish-language subject course América Latina y Europa: Lugares, memorias, identidades (Latin America and Europe: Places, memories, identities) will be taught by Dr. Gregory Joseph Lobo.
