Learn More About our Programs

Becoming proficient in another language is a relevant skill that opens up job opportunities here and abroad, while cultivating a deeper understanding of other cultures through their literature, films, and lives.

Learn more about majors in German and Russian Studies; dual degree programs in German and World Language Education, and Engineering and German. Also, minors in German and Russian. You can study abroad with generously funded academic exchanges and internship opportunities.

With UGA's Double Dawgs accelerated degree program students earn an AB and MA in German in only five years! Graduate school tuition is waived, and students are mentored in a cohort of graduate assistants and TAs.

And open to ALL majors is the Russian Flagship Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Defense to support language needs critical to national security and diplomacy. Each cohort receives hands-on, mentored training in intensive Russian language and culture, including a capstone year abroad in Kazakhstan for immersive study and an internship.
