Program Details

As a scholar in our degree program, you’ll study the German language in its cultural context, with a strong emphasis on literature, film, new media and cultural history. In addition to becoming culturally competent, you’ll acquire a command of the language orally and in writing, enabling you to engage critically with texts and films as well as with the situations of daily life.
