Germany is Europe's largest economy, so why not consider a German/International Studies double major to prepare for a career with an international firm? Or you could combine your German major with our teacher certification program to prepare you for teaching at a high school. Of course, you can also study German simply for the love of the language and its culture.

We keep classes small so you can work closely with your professors to master your conversation, writing and reading skills. Outside of class you'll have fun taking trips to a local Oktoberfest, the Bullfrog for Stammtisch, and even New York City for a German Opera and dinner with your classmates in Deutschverein, the German Club.

When you're ready, you'll be off to Germany to study at our affiliate campus, Otto-Friedrich-Universitat, one of the highest-rated universities in Germany.
