Broaden your horizons

Today’s world is smaller than ever, and learning German can open the door to diverse opportunities. So whether you plan to spend time abroad, are looking to compliment another area of study, or hope to gain a deeper appreciation for the culture of our Lutheran heritage, studying German at Concordia can prove to be a tremendous asset.

Program Overview

German is among the most commonly spoken languages in the world and has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. So when you take courses at Concordia designed to help you develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing fluency, you’re opening yourself up to new opportunities—opportunities like study abroad trips or exciting job prospects.

German offerings at CUW also expose students to the traditions and customs of the culture. Many of the world’s most important works of literature, music, history, theology, and science are written—in some instances solely—in German. Learners will be exposed to the country’s storied history and explore the issues that face contemporary German society.

What to Expect

One of the best ways to become fluent in all things German is to immerse yourself in it. That’s why we make it a requirement for all CUW German majors to study abroad. Past students have studied in places like Greifswald, Wittenberg, Vechta, Kassel, Berlin, and Bonn.

But whether you graduate with a bachelor’s degree in German, or even just a couple courses under your belt, you’ll undoubtedly broaden your perspective. A degree in German will enhance your knowledge and skills in other areas as well, and you’ll come out of the program a well-rounded, globally minded citizen who’s not only fluent in the language, but who possesses the skills and knowledge to connect with a broader community.

Locations

In addition to our main and online campuses, Concordia has nine center locations which offer accelerated undergraduate and graduate programs close to where you live and work.
