Program description

Bachelor of Arts in German

At Hanover, you can develop your own pathway with German based on your interests. With major and minor options in German and German Studies, you can focus on advanced language acquisition and study abroad, or take interdisciplinary courses in the History, Music, and Philosophy Departments toward your degree. If you would like to become a P-12 teacher, you can double major in German and Education and complete a teaching internship at a local school. German classes also count as electives in the Business Scholars Program and the International Studies Program. Connect German with your own interests! Our curriculum is based on anti-racist approaches and focuses on inclusive, intercultural and interdisciplinary topics to prepare you for a global citizenship.

The German Department collaborates with faculty across campus to offer current and innovative co-curricular activities and courses. In a recent project, students translated letters by a German-American settler for use in a history class, and in a future Spring Term (TBD), we will team up with the Theater Department to put on a German play in both English and German. The Chemistry and German Departments also plan to team up in the near future to take students to Germany for a class on fermentation and brewing! Join the faculty-led German Club to participate in co-curricular language and cultural activities! German-speakers from across campus and our greater communities are welcome to attend events.

Come learn about the German language and cultures through films, fairy tales, literature, music, plays, poems, translations and more... and write and perform your own!

Why study at Hanover College

Hanover College gives students the best of all worlds. There are renowned professors at the top of their discipline, but classes small enough to get 1:1 interaction and mentoring from those professors.

We are located in a small midwestern area near one of Indiana's most historic small towns (Madison, IN), but less than an hour away from some of the largest and most touristic cities of the Midwest.

We have a one-of-a-kind naturally beautiful campus with over 600 acres of space, hiking trails, over 30 waterfalls, and endless hammocking spots. Hanover is also Indiana's first and oldest private, liberal arts, college. Hanover is also a global institution with about 18 different international partner universities and a variety of study abroad options to participate in during your 4 years here.
