A.B. In German
The German Studies major is designed to provide students with communicative proficiency in the German language and competency in the interpretation of German culture. Following the completion of basic requirements, the program offers optimal flexibility to the individual student who can choose from a variety of courses and, under the guidance of a faculty mentor, devise a curriculum geared towards his or her specific career goals and intellectual interests. The department is comprised of specialists in the major areas of German Studies who integrate language teaching with the teaching of German literature, linguistics, film, and culture studies as well as important aspects of contemporary German society, business, and politics.
A.B. in Russian
The Russian major is intended to help you develop advanced language proficiency and acquire a deep understanding of Russian culture. The requirements are designed to allow you flexibility in pursuing your own interests (including study of related Slavic languages/cultures, if desired). Students often combine a Russian major with a second major in a related field, such as International Affairs, History, Linguistics, etc. Russian study can easily be combined with virtually any other major and will expand your future career opportunities.
The German minor requires 15 hours of coursework (5 courses). It is designed to allow students to achieve a significant level of proficiency in German and insight into German culture as a secondary area of concentration in addition to their major. Courses used to satisfy Core Areas I-V or requirements for the student's major may not be used simultaneously to satisfy requirements for the minor.
