German Studies

German majors may concentrate either in German literature or German studies, choosing from course offerings in language, literature, and civilization. Options include junior year abroad at such universities as Universität Hamburg and Ruprecht-Karls Universität Heidelberg, and independent, faculty-guided study. In addition, the department offers a correlate sequence. A senior thesis is a prerequisite for departmental honors.
