BERLIN: Architecture Program

Traditional | Berlin, Germany

Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (c.boyle@neu.edu)

Inspired by Berlin's fascinating architectural transformation and the prolific "often controversial" construction after the fall of the Wall, this program was created for the Architecture students. Berlin is a laboratory for design experimentation. This program acquaints students with the process of rebuilding in one of Europe's key cities and instills a critical attitude towards the physical and cultural context of architecture. Students contrast the recent ultra modern commercial and bureaucratic architecture with the corroded walls and incomplete spaces that still characterize much of the urban landscape.

Today's technologies allow architects to design for building sites they may never visit. What does it mean for an architect to propose a building or to rethink an urban situation in a foreign culture? How do architects develop an appropriate understanding of a place, its history and architecture, in the design process? In Berlin's turbulent context, students combine site analysis with their talent and intuition to design locally relevant solutions.

As one of eleven German universities, the Humboldt-Universität was chosen “University of Excellence” in June 2012. It was successful in all three funding lines in the third round of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments and awarded for its future concept “Educating Enquiring Minds: Individuality – Openness – Guidance”.

OXFORD: Arcadia

Traditional | Oxford, England

Study Abroad Coordinator: Daisy Biddle (d.biddle@neu.edu)

At the core of an Oxford education is the tutorial system, where students meet one-on-one or in small groups with a subject tutor who will provide constructive guidance and feedback on your intellectual journey. In most cases, Oxford students focus on one particular subject (like biochemistry or modern history) without general or elective study in subjects outside their specialty. Students meet with tutors and attend lectures for eight weeks a term during three, ten-week terms a year. During the long breaks between teaching terms, students consolidate and extend their reading and work in a subject. You and your principal tutor will decide on your major and minor tutorial concentrations for that term. For instance, a student in English may be directed to focus on Shakespeare's tragedies and 19th-century women's writing. Additionally, your principal tutor will appoint some of his or her colleagues to supervise your tutorials in each area. You will meet these tutors on a weekly or bi-weekly basis over the term. You can expect your principal tutor to assign readings, lectures, practical laboratory work, and a topic for you to prepare and present, often in the form of a tutorial essay. These essays, based on extensive independent reading, are concentrated expressions of your analysis of each weekly topic. You can expect to prepare one or two essays per week, which your tutor will critique and help you develop. Each term awards a total of 12 semester hours of credit, apportioned from three to eight credits for each tutorial depending on the number of meetings and proportion of time the tutorial requires.

With the Renaissance it became possible to unite the strands of these cultures in a new and exciting synthesis which prepared the way for the birth of the modern world. This semester-long study abroad experience allows students to retrace the steps of Greek, Etruscan, Roman, medieval and Renaissance cultures by living and studying in three cities which embody these civilizations in all their richness and splendor: TuscaniaRome and either Florence (fall semester) or Venice (spring semester).

Students spend one month in Tuscania followed by one month in Rome, and then they choose to complete the experience in either Florence (fall) or Venice (spring). They follow a structured and integrated program of five 4-credit courses, which together comprise both a unique investigation into the roots of Western civilization and a grounding in modern Italian language and culture.

TUSCANIA: Lorenzo de’ Medici

Traditional | Tuscania, Italy

Study Abroad Coordinator: Katie Rabbitt Burke (k.burke@neu.edu)

The LdM program at Tuscania is based on a full immersion concept. Because of the town's small size and its geographic location, students live and study in a fully Italian and a more traditional small community-based environment. Integration in the community is fundamental to the program, encouraging students to create relationships in a cultural context. The curriculum has been designed to promote the historical, artistic and cultural qualities that make this part of Italy unique. Thus courses in history and archaeology focus on the Etruscan, Roman and medieval civilizations that are at the core of Tuscania's development, while courses in culinary arts reflect Tuscania's connection to the agricultural cycles and traditions of the region.

XI’AN: Alliance for Global Education

Study Abroad Coordinator: Katie Rabbitt Burke (k.burke@neu.edu)
