Special Concentrations

In addition to completing a German major or minor, the department offers special concentrations for students who simply want to learn basic German or concentrate on a particular area in developing their German skills. Our first- and second-year German language sequence is nationally recognized for its pedagogical advances including the integration of new technology under the skillful guidance of the Multimedia Learning Center to improve teaching and learning. Our business German sequence is unique and we are one of the few Universities in the United States who offer in conjunction with the Goethe Institute of Chicago the internationally recognized Business German Examination regularly. And we work together with the School of Education and Social Policy to encourage those who wish to pursue a career in teaching German to take the necessary courses in the School of Education and Social Policy.
