The language of Luther

German is one of the most common languages among native speakers in Europe and a language of the world. Many of the most important works of Nobel Prize winners, authors, filmmakers, philosophers and composers are in German. The German Minor will allow you to teach in Martin Luther’s native language and more clearly impart the knowledge and wisdom of the written word.

Program Overview

You will study the great works of German literature from the 18th-20th centuries and be able to lead thoughtful conversations about these pieces. You will be able to analyze and dissect grammar and the subtlety of language to help students break down sentence structure.
