About

As a German Studies major at Connecticut College, you immerse yourself in all aspects of German history, culture, philosophy, politics and language. Because the department is small, you work closely with your professors and tailor the major to fit your interests.

Overview

The study of a foreign culture is interdisciplinary; we encourage you to take related courses in other fields. We also encourage you to study in Germany or Austria for a semester or an entire academic year. 

The German Studies program offered by Connecticut College gives you a solid foundation for a number of careers. Recently, German studies majors have had tremendous success securing Fulbright scholarships. In the past two years, seven have been chosen for the program, which allows you to study, teach and launch a project of your choosing in Germany.

Research opportunities

German studies majors can undertake research projects either through one of our certificate programs in international studies, community action, environmental studies, or arts and technology, or through a two-semester honors thesis. Students have written on a broad spectrum of topics ranging from soccer and national identity in Germany to multilingualism and the successful multilingual polity of Switzerland.

International opportunities and study abroad

We participate in an exchange that allows you to study for a year or a semester in Baden-Württemberg. The exchange also helps you find an internship. Summer study abroad is another option, with funds available through the department's John S. King Scholarship. You have many opportunities on campus to practice your language skills with native speakers (including daily lunch conversation at the Knowlton international residence hall) and learn about life in Germany. The department also sponsors academic lectures, film screenings, readings and cultural events, including an annual Oktoberfest.
