About this course

The Department of German offers a variety of programs and courses designed to meet the different needs and interests of students on all levels: for beginners as well as for advanced students and native speakers. The program consists of language and topic courses covering a wide field of Germanic Studies including Medieval Studies and Yiddish Studies. As one of the Faculty's smaller departments, it provides substantiated knowledge and skills in intimate class settings. A number of courses are offered in English to fulfill the breath requirement.

German-speaking countries enjoy a long tradition at the cultural and political core of Europe. During the last two hundred years their importance has steadily increased, and with the recent developments in Eastern Europe their influence seems certain to expand even more.

The importance of the German language has grown correspondingly: it is the second foreign language after English in the countries of central and Eastern Europe, and its use is spreading within the European Community. Learning German opens the door to many fields of intellectual, technical and politico-economic endeavor. German scholars have been leaders in philosophy, the sciences, history, archaeology, sociology and political science. German literature is equally distinguished: writers like Goethe, Kafka, Rilke, Brecht, Mann, Wolf, Grass, Jelinek, Özdamar, etc., have dealt with the widest possible range of human problems and concerns, and have been recognized worldwide.
