Willkommen to German Studies

The German Studies Program offers students a combination of language, literature and culture courses towards a major or minor degree in German. In their first year students acquire basic communication skills in German. After three years of study students achieve the necessary language skills to fully function in a German-speaking environment.

Language classes focus on speaking, listening and writing using a well structured combination of multimedia tools and a variety of communicative class activities. Our small class size allows instructors to closely monitor the students’ progress. Additional help is available through our free tutoring service.

By offering various extra curricular activities, such as our bi-weekly “Kaffeeklatsch” , our German club and various literary readings, every effort is made to immerse students in the cultural life of German speaking countries.
