The general German Major provides in-depth study of German through a variety of upper-division German courses. Students become proficient in the German language while taking specialized courses in language for specific purposes, linguistics, literature, film, civilization and other topics of culture of regions where German is spoken. With possible additional coursework and success on a proficiency exam, this major is also excellent preparation for those interested in entering a teaching credential program. Career Opportunities: Many employers recognize knowledge of German as a very valuable asset for students who wish to enter careers in business, government, communication, or the arts. A major in German provides excellent preparation for careers as area specialists, translators, teachers, or consultants for private businesses and agencies. Positions can be found in international organizations, the federal government, publishing houses, or cultural institutions. In preparation for an international career, a major in German can be combined with a double major or a minor in such areas as business, engineering, economics, communication, political science, geography, history, journalism, international relations, or European studies. A major in German for the single subject teaching credential can lead to a career in teaching at a secondary school. A German major is also useful preparation for advanced study in fields such as German linguistics or literature, German area studies, European studies, linguistics, comparative literature, library science, communications, journalism, education, public administration, and (possibly with additional course work) in international relations, international law and international business.
