Why choose German Studies?

Language is the primary medium of human culture and expression. It is the fundamental vehicle not only of the routine of daily life but also of our highest intellectual aspirations and achievements. The Minor in German opens doors to new ways of understanding the world and the self through the study of language, culture and literature. Delve into the language of one of the world’s great economic and scientific powerhouses, and gain competence in the language of great thinkers such as Nietzsche and Kant.

Starting from the four basic language skills – speaking, listening, reading and writing – the minor integrates innovative approaches to the study of the grammar, culture, civilization and literature of the German-speaking world.
