A major or minor in German will satisfy the needs of many students: Those who desire a broad liberal arts education with a multi-cultural dimension; those interested in government service or careers in international commerce and industry; those who wish to teach German; and those who intend to continue their language studies in graduate school.

German courses integrate many other subjects: politics, economics, art, literature, media, film, and geography. Students can easily combine German with other majors, including religion, international political economy, business, art, marketing, physics, or history.
