Description of German
Students majoring in German study one of the major languages of the world and are prepared in language, culture and literature.
Primary emphasis for German majors is on German speaking countries in Germany, Austria, and a large part of Switzerland.
German is also spoken as a first or second language in several countries in Eastern Europe. Having a greater sense of the German
culture and language prepares students for professions in government, politics, international relations and business, banking,
trade, travel, or a host of other related professions. Many companies in the United States and abroad are looking for employees
who speak more than one language. Even if students don't use his or her ability to speak German, the cultural awareness gained
is a transferable skill that will be highly prized.
