Our Programs and Curriculum
German Courses at Northwestern
Dear Students: while we are eager to be back on campus and teach you in person, everybody's safety in this time of uncertainty associated with Covid-19 is our primary concern. We want to assure you that our courses continue to be fun, interactive, engaging and packed full with valuable learning opportunities whether we teach fully online, or meet some of the time on campus in the Fall. We will continue to offer a broad spectrum of courses to meet your goals: we hope you consider starting to learn German or continue with your studies in a supportive course environment. If you have questions about enrolling in any of our engaging courses, please contact us (or schedule a virtual meeting) even during the summer and we will arrange for a zoom conversation with you.
A Unique Department
Outstanding Research FacultyOur faculty are engaged in a range of projects, many involving cross-disciplinary issues, such as critical theory, theories of reading, psychoanalysis, Jewish studies, the history of science, and the role of technology in learning and teaching in the field of Second Language Acquisition.
Progressive Learning EnvironmentThe department recognizes that in addition to exposure to various classroom learning situations and scenarios, learners need a variety of learning situations including opportunities to use the target language with native speakers in the target culture to progress their learning.
