Berlin Field Trip 2024

Keep checking in for updates on a possible Field Trip to Berlin in Spring 2024

Due to recent complications when travelling internationally and ongoing COVID-19 concerns there will be no Berlin Field Trip in Spring 2023. We are planning to offer the course again in Spring 2024!
