We offer a curriculum which combines intensive study of the German language with an interdisciplinary approach to German culture. These opportunities prepare our students to understand both changing approaches to cultural studies as well as the changes in European and world affairs that will affect our ways of life in the next century.
Since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, Germany's growing economic and political influence has manifested itself worldwide. Unified Germany is one of the driving forces of European unification, a process that will be a central factor in world economics and politics in the next century. The study of German history and culture will therefore be a major asset to students considering careers in many fields as well as in further study in graduate school.
