German Studies provides students with a wide range of opportunities to explore culture, literature, and language of the German-speaking countries. Such studies may fulfill the language requirement, serve as part of the general education, or lead to an in-depth course of study as a German Studies major, double major, or minor. The study of German prepares students for academic careers in fields such as history, art history, religion, philosophy, political science, literature, and music as well as for professional careers that emphasize the international aspects of business, law, economics, finance, government, science, engineering, and education.
