About this Program

The Department of Global Languages and Cultures offers a major in German that, in addition to providing understanding of the German language and culture, gives a new perspective on the English language and American culture.

Program Overview

The major also prepares students for graduate studies or for careers in teaching, government, business, industry and international organizations.

German majors must spend a semester or a year in a German-speaking country or live for two years in the German House, a small residence on campus where only German is spoken. The residence is under the leadership of a young German, Swiss or Austrian student.

Internships are available for qualified German majors in government agencies and international organizations and corporations. In the United States, potential internship sites include the German, Swiss and Austrian embassies, the Goethe Institute and German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C.

The German Minor
