About this program


As a German major, you can discover the joys of learning about a culture from the inside out. You can develop translingual and transcultural competency, participate in international working and learning communities, prepare for a career in a globalized economy and society, qualify to teach K-12 German by completing a secondary education major, and boost your résumé while you’re at it. You can share your insights into German and European history and culture by conducting research and then delivering presentations at local and national conferences and our own Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research.
