German Program Details

Learning a language is at the heart of a liberal arts education. Understanding the connections between a language and larger cultural contexts is a gateway to living, working, and communicating successfully in an increasingly globalized world. We in the German program invite students to explore the rich and complicated history of German-speaking cultures. With an emphasis on student-centered teaching and on preparation for learning abroad at our partner university in Trier, the German program at Rollins is dedicated to helping students acquire cultural knowledge across the disciplines through intensive study of the German language and the societies in which the language is spoken. Students may complement their majors in philosophy, history, music, economics, international relations and international business, to name a few, with a minor in German.

Community Engagement in German

Students of German have a tradition of taking their study of German out of the classroom. Some of the activities take advantage of events sponsored by organizations both on campus and in the larger community. Others center on ways that students of German can actively bring their knowledge of the language and culture to the use of others.
