The German program promotes an understanding of the extraordinary contributions made by German-speaking writers, artists, and thinkers to the past eight hundred years of civilization, and their implications for the modern world in which Germany and the German speaking countries play a pivotal role. It provides a gateway to cultural studies and international affairs and business. A wide range of courses in German gives students with varied interests and goals the opportunity to attain a thorough knowledge of the language, literature, and general culture. The program also provides a significant number of courses in English so that students not conversant in German may become familiar with important aspects of German culture and contemporary life. Students can concentrate in either German Language and Literature or German Studies, both with the added option of spending 1-2 semesters abroad with Tufts-in-Tübingen. The German program works closely with the International Relations and the International Letters and Visual Studies programs at Tufts. To major in this area, a student takes nine courses above the intermediate level (GER 4). Students majoring in German should take advantage of our many language/culture courses taught solely in German (GER 21, 22, 34, 44, 61, 62 and varying 100-level literature/culture courses). A minimum of two 100-level courses taught in German (121 and one literature course at that level) is required. One course in a related field – to be approved by German program faculty - is also required
