Over NYU's winter recess, the students in Dean's Circle, the University Scholars program and sophomore honors society of Liberal Studies, traveled to Berlin. The field study complemented their coursework in the year-long Dean's Circle seminar, titled The Global Art Collective. The students and their professor, Robert Fitterman, were accompanied by Associate Dean of Students Jonathon White, Assistant Director of Student Affairs Hannah Pingelton, and Assistant Direct of Advising and Diversity Candace Sumner-Robinson on the trip to visit the cultural sites, local galleries, and artists' studios of Berlin.
Throughout the spring semester, each Dean's Circle student will develop a project inspired by the collective work of the fall semester. Below, Professor Fitterman recaps their enlightening visit to Berlin.
