German BA

Total Units Required: 120

The German flag and a sign that reads "German" is seen on a table where people are sitting and talking.

The Bachelor of Arts in German engages students in the study of the German language and German-speaking cultures. Majors critically examine the history, literature, and film of German-speaking regions as well as current issues and aspects of contemporary society. Students develop functional proficiency in spoken and written German and the ability to navigate German-speaking cultures and interact with speakers in a variety of professional settings. This low-unit BA can be especially useful for students preparing for careers in international relations, business, engineering, natural sciences, and arts and humanities.

Students are encouraged to study abroad in Germany or Austria for a summer, semester, or year.
