Take a German Department Faculty Member to Lunch

Program gives undergraduate students free lunch with faculty member(s).

Welcome to Germanic Languages & Literatures

Graduate and undergraduate students will be guided by faculty with deep methodic training and experience in German and Comparative Literature, History, Political Science, Film Studies, Linguistics, Sociology, Philosophy, Business, and Music. Many of our faculty have joint appointments in corresponding departments—they are interdisciplinarians.

Our courses are wide-ranging, challenging, and just plain fun! Descriptions of each language program are available through the links below.
