Summer Internships in Germany

Since 2003, Professor Stephen Della Lana has been helping students to gain valuable work and study experience during the summer months through the College of Charleston's Partnership with Cultural Vistas.  Students spend one month in Berlin studying German at the Carl-Duisberg-Sprachzentrum and two months in an internship with an organization or company. 

98 students from disciplines as diverse as Philosophy and Physics, International Business and Biology, History and Geology, have benefitted from this program which provides one month intensive language training in Berlin followed by two months in an internship with a company or institution related to their interests and skills.
