Bavaria Field Trip (Germany)

The semester begins with a four-day trip through Bavaria that gives you a hands-on introduction to European culture while it also provides a great opportunity to meet the other students.

Soon after arrival, there will be an introductory field trip permitting students to get to know the other participants better, adjust to their European environment, learn to navigate a European city and discover the site-specific interplay of history and contemporary reality.
In order to be able to place Salzburg in its appropriate geographic and historical context, students will have the opportunity to explore the city of Munich.

The educational focus will be an understanding of the present through its relation to the past. Therefore students will be introduced to the workings of modern commerce and industry (BMW plant, Olympia Park), the preservation of cultural accomplishments (Deutsches Museum, Pinakothek), the development of political history (Nazi Party Rally Grounds, Nuremberg Trial Court of Justice), the prominence of historical architecture and art (city center of Munich), and the typical features of Central Europeans' day-to-day routine in shopping, leisure, etc. (Viktualienmarkt, Hofbräuhaus, Englischer Garten).
