We offer German as both a major and a minor course of study.
Our program leads students through a broadly conceived, integrated study of the German language and of literary and cultural history and enables them to immerse themselves in contemporary German culture through its acclaimed study group program in Freiburg, Germany.

The department also encourages students to enroll in related courses in other disciplines. A major in German is an excellent preparation for advanced studies in the fields of literature, philosophy, art history, history, film studies, and music, and can also give students a competitive edge in the fields of international relations, law, business, journalism, and publishing.
