Understanding the connections between a language and larger cultural contexts is a gateway to living, working, and communicating successfully in an increasingly globalized world. A German minor complements an array of majors from philosophy to international relations and equips you with essential skills in communication, critical thinking, and cultural fluency.
By minoring in German, you’ll explore the rich and complicated history of German-speaking cultures with an emphasis on student-centered teaching and preparation for learning abroad through faculty-led and semester programs.
