Program Overview

The German program provides students with communication skills in both written and spoken German and an understanding of and appreciation for the peoples, literatures, and cultures of the German-speaking world.

Although many students choose to study German for personal growth and intellectual enrichment, the program is designed to prepare students to enter a variety of careers in, for example, teaching, business, industry and government, and to prepare them for further study at the graduate level. German language and culture studies are of great professional value in such fields as international business, communications, translating and interpreting, personnel work, public relations, management, education, music, art, philosophy, law, history, anthropology, theology, social work, politics and the travel industry. Furthermore, proficiency in a foreign language and an understanding of World Cultures are essential for peace and prosperity in a mutually interdependent world.
