Courses are available for students looking to learn a new language or advanced students seeking to improve their knowledge of a specific country or culture. Based on interest and experience, courses are available for short- or long-term studies, including studying abroad.

What is a course in German studies? Considered part of a liberal arts program, these courses can be taken singly or as a series of classes toward a minor or major. There also are classes available for a master’s degree. While beginner courses focus on written and spoken German, mid-level and advanced courses offer further insight to the language, history, culture and contemporary society of German-speaking countries. Course studies vary across areas of study, including philosophy, art, politics and economics.

The main benefit of a German studies course is learning a new language, which helps students better understand their own language. Additionally, these courses complement other areas of study, such as film and architecture, and give students a broader understanding of different cultures and society, which can help enrich future careers.

The cost of these courses is similar to other areas of study and will vary if taking only one course or multiple classes as credit toward a degree. Costs also are different from school to school and between different countries.

Studying German goes beyond learning a language. Students who take these courses can apply the skills learned across professions. In the business world, understanding a language that millions of people speak has innumerable benefits. Germany is a major player in the world of economics, innovation and the arts, and has companies across the globe. The ability to communicate and understand German-speaking cultures can boost careers such as a business executive, manufacturing manager, travel agent or technical liaison. Advanced students can use their knowledge to become a translator or instructor.

Regardless of the level of interest in the subject, German studies courses are available through many schools online and on campuses throughout the world. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
