German Studies Concentration

Students who choose the German Studies concentration will have tremendous flexibility in building their own cluster of courses to align with a particular facet of German, based on their academic interests or intended career path. In the case of double majors, the German Studies concentration allows students to meaningfully align their two programs of study so that one complements the other, with the concentration courses potentially double-counting between both majors. Students with German as a secondary major may also be able to double-count their Studies concentration courses with courses taken for the learning domains.
 
After declaring the German major with the Studies concentration, students should meet with the German Program Director to discuss ideas and options for crafting a tailor-made German Studies concentration that best fits their college and post-graduate goals.
