About Program

Experience Berlin—the economic and political center of Germany. This capital city also boasts a thriving arts scene (with more than 175 museums and galleries) and some of the world’s most spectacular architecture. When you intern in Berlin, you’ll be able to walk, bike, or take a bus, tram, or train (U-Bahn) to work. Over lunch, stroll through one of Berlin’s countless parks and gardens. At night, enjoy live music or theater in this Kulturhaupstadt (cultural capital) of Germany. Interning in Berlin will boost both your résumé credentials and your cultural competence.

You’ll be guaranteed an unpaid placement at a local business or organization, where you’ll work for at least 25 hours per week. You’ll also enroll in a 3- or 6- credit academic internship seminar with other IES interns, where you’ll gain context for your internship placement by examining cultural issues in the workplace.
