The Berlin Consortium for German Studies (BCGS) is administered by
Columbia in cooperation with five other leading universities.
Students in the BCGS begin
with a six-week cultural integration period, living with a German family
and completing an intensive German language practicum. They then enroll
directly at the Freie Universität Berlin and move into
a German dormitory when the regular FU term begins.
A BCGS information session is scheduled for
Tuesday, September 24, 5-6:30 p.m., in 510 Lewisohn Hall.
Frank Wolf, John Sharples, and returning students will be available at
this meeting as well.
Reid Hall and the BCGS
are Columbia's own programs, enabling
Columbia and Barnard students to study abroad without interrupting
their education at their home school. Courses, credits, and
grades appear directly on Columbia and Barnard students'
transcripts, just like classes taken on the Morningside campus (as
opposed to the "transfer credit" earned at a non-affiliated
study-abroad program). In addition, students' financial aid packages are
almost fully applicable to Reid Hall and the BCGS, .
Outside of the classroom, students in both programs are able to
make the most of their European experience by participating in a wide range of
extracurricular activities, field
trips, and study trips to other European cities such as Bonn,
Prague, and Besançon.
