Message from the Chair

As you will see, we are a small but diverse department with a variety of degree and certificate options at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. If you want to undertake German language studies, from beginning to advanced, please look us over.

If you want to study German film, or fin-de-siecle Vienna, or ethnic diversity in today’s German-speaking countries, we probably have something to offer you. If children’s literature is of interest to you, or Goethe, or Kafka, or German-Jewish relations, or the history of German cultural politics in Wilhemine, Germany, we have courses and curricular options on which to build a program of study.

We invite you to consider joining our internationally diverse group, which in recent years has included students from Bulgaria, China, Germany, Hungary, Romania, and even the United States.
