Would you like to spend five weeks at Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany this summer learning about the history of urban planning and design and completing an international urban design practicum? Attend UC San Diego’s “Modernism and Design: the Bauhaus Experience” Global Seminar!

This Global Seminar focuses on the history, contradictions, and legacy of the Bauhaus School and its underlying philosophy as a lens into the larger International Style in architecture and planning across the world. This Global Seminar will introduce students to critical architecture and urban planning theory and history in conjunction with a design school studio experience that will enable them to apply concepts to their own designs and create work to include in their personal portfolios. Students will also benefit from the opportunity to live and study in a quintessential European college town.
