Welcome to the German Program

Study German, and enrich your academic and career opportunities! Learning German and gaining valuable insights into the history and culture of the German-speaking countries can offer a competitive edge in our increasingly global world!

What do we offer at SSU? Students may earn a German minor or an interdisciplinary major in German Cultural Studies. Or they may simply add two semesters of language study to boost graduate school and job applications! 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.
