Faculty Director: Dr. Jutta Street

"The countries of Germany, Austria, and France have a shared history, rich traditions of music and art, and unique cultural characteristics.  During this fifteen day trip, we will visit fabulous castles, cathedrals, museums, historical universities, and we will sample local cuisine. We will also visit key locations that mark the early roots of the science of psychology, such as Wundt’s lab in Leipzi, and many more. The journey offers a mix of organized activities and free time to explore each locality.  A guided tour at each major location will offer the opportunity to experience the local sights and sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of the countryside when we travel from one location to the next by high-speed train.

Campbell University students who take the courses for psychology credit will be required to formalize their experiences of the trip in several formal assignments, researching the early history of psychology and analyzing the influence of historical and cultural events of the time on the development of the discipline of psychology.

In addition to psychology stuff, the program will include the ‘Sound of Music” tour in Salzburg, the visit at Dachau (the original concentration camp), the visit in Wittenberg (Martin Luther), the visit at Heidelberg castle, the live concert by the St. Thomas choir in St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, and the walking tours in all cities.

We know majors and non-majors alike will enjoy this program. I hope you join us for Summer 2016!"
