Award-Winning Instructors

The Department of German has an exceptional teaching faculty. Instructors make every effort to approach learning from a variety of angles to offer classes that are engaging and motivating, intellectually fulfilling, and, at the same time, broaden and deepen learning. This dedication to teaching is not only reflected in the success of our students who continue to win Fulbright and DAAD awards, among others, but also in the many teaching awards our faculty earned.
