The University of Greifswald is situated in the Baltic Sea Area, about 2-3 hours from Berlin and Hamburg, Szczecin in Poland and the Danish capital Copenhagen. The University has strong scientific cooperation with partner universities in Northern and Eastern Europe as well as Russia. Cultures of the Baltic Sea Region are one main focus in research and teaching, especially within the Faculty of Arts. Students can study all languages of the Baltic Region or concentrate on this area in the fields of Political Sciences and History. This provides students interested in learning Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian a great opportunity to learn three European languages that are not offered on the Berkeley campus. The University of Greifswald furthermore has strong research capacities in the Life sciences (Community Medicine, Environmental Changes, Plasma Physics, Proteomics) as well as Law and Business. Some of these courses are offered in English, others in German. For additional information, please contact email@example.com
