A German major or minor complements a wide variety of academic fields of study such as business management, engineering, art and the performing arts, literature, linguistics, journalism, cultural history, philosophy, geography, and religion. Given the ever-increasing role of Germany as a world leader, the opportunities for graduates with a major or minor in German are also increasing. There are many reasons to learn German.
The coursework required for the German minor typically results in intermediate speaking, listening, writing, and reading proficiencies, coupled with a cultural understanding and knowledge of the German-speaking peoples in Europe and elsewhere.
