Our Programs and Curriculum

 

German at Northwestern

Two German majors at convocation

We offer a broad spectrum of courses either in English or in German in an effort to serve not only potential majors or minors but also students from different fields within the College and from other schools across campus. It is our goal to expose students in our classes to a variety of learning approaches, content areas, and texts to foster a rich understanding of the language, the history, and the culture of the German-speaking world.
