German Language and Society Minor

David J. Limburg, Department of Modern Language Studies

This minor provides access to German culture as well as insights into our own culture. The program focuses on language- learning as a living, functioning and fun activity, and combines the development of language skills with the discovery of new ways to see and think about different cultures. It fosters international understanding and provides knowledge and skills that are becoming increasingly essential in our evolving global society.

The minor in German language and society is not available to German majors.
