If you have some experience in German, if you have German heritage, or If you're thinking about learning a new language, a minor in German can benefit and support your major. Majors with a German minor come from Engineering, English, Math, and many other departments.
For the English speaker, German is often surprisingly easy to master. This is because the two languages have the same Germanic roots. Mastering German will also improve your English. Improved literacy, higher reading achievement as well as enhanced listening skills and memory have been shown to correlate with German language study.
The German economy ranks number one in Europe and number four worldwide. Germany has always been at the forefront of cutting-edge research. German universities and research centers work closely with their numerous international corporations.
There are no prerequisites and no previous knowledge of German required to earn your minor in German.
Current course offerings can be found through ULINK, or you can see all German courses on the online catalog. More detailed information on course content, as well as the minor in German, is available from the professor, Dr. Caroline Huey.
