Program Description


The Department of Modern Languages is committed, as ever, to providing a fresh and varied program of study, and offers stimulating courses centered upon such subjects as literature, film, business, poetry, and other aspects of the culture that we study through language. Our students are actively involved on campus in the German club, tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, and German immersion days, and off campus in service learning, civic engagement, and internships.

No course of study in modern languages is complete without the opportunity to study or spend time abroad. We encourage all German majors and minors to explore the program that best fits personal situations and career goals. The university offers a variety of foreign study programs in Germany and Austria; these can differ in length of time (two- or three-week Ambassador Programs led by Wright German professors; one and two semester programs) and some are subject specific.  Prospective and current students can view available programs by looking at the University Center for International Education website and can confer with faculty advisors. The members of the faculty take pride in their work as teachers and mentors, and we look forward to each and every new incoming student!
