German is more than a language — the curriculum studies German culture, history, philosophy, literature, arts, and film; German House and a weekly German Table allow you to live the language with fellow students, native speakers, and visiting guests. You can cap off your experience with study abroad, a senior seminar, or an independent research project. Majors go on to graduate study and careers in education, interpretation, media, law, economic development, government, tourism, finance, and more.


Film with a fictional account of the worst attacks against immigrants in post-war Germany will be followed by an informal discussion.
