B.A. and Minor in German

In addition to required language courses, students in the German program engage in their coursework with topics as varied as cultural constructions of the former East Germany, Germans in Exile, the medieval period in the German context, and literary treatments of the Holocaust. The curriculum is designed to provide students a solid grounding in the German language and cross-cultural competence. Classes in the program are often small, and student opportunities for study abroad in German-speaking countries are actively promoted and encouraged.
