The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures offers courses in German language, culture and literature. Students can complete their GE language requirement by enrolling in our German language sequence. For those students who are interested in continuing to more advanced levels of language and culture instruction, we offer a German minor and a German major. We also offer a wide variety of GE courses on German cultural and literary themes taught in English.
