What do we offer at SSU? You can choose between the special major in German Cultural Studies or a German minor. Or you may simply add two semesters of language study to boost your graduate school or job applications! In any case, it is a very smart idea to study German. Being able to communicate in German and having a solid foundation in German history and culture enhances the study of other fields, such as history, political science, global studies, music, art history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and other disciplines. For more reasons to study German see the "Why Study German"page.
