Colgate University’s program in German explores German-speaking Europe’s historic influence, contested cultural legacies, and contemporary global significance


Colgate University’s program in German also offers the opportunity for immersion in contemporary German and European culture through our acclaimed study group in Freiburg, Germany. With attention to the ways that language, culture, and thought are fundamentally interwoven, our program emphasizes the importance of working in German linguistically as an essential dimension of studying German-speaking cultures.

  • The campus presence of German Studies is enhanced by the department's co-curricular programming as well as by the activities of the student-led German Club, whose efforts to raise critical awareness of pressing contemporary social issues in German-speaking Europe and beyond are endorsed and supported by the department.
