We offer exciting courses that promote the link between language and the larger cultural context, including literature, art, and music, along with history, politics, business, and philosophy. Our seminar topics include contemporary Berlin, German film, and multiculturalism in Germany. Small class sizes in the upper level allow for a high degree of student-faculty interaction and enable us to identify your individual interests and assist you with designing the right course of study, including programs abroad—our students have studied at universities in Berlin, Eichstätt, Marburg, and Trier —and internship experience. Recent German majors have received the prestigious Fulbright Teaching Assistantship and German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Study Scholarship; another completed an internship with a German corporation through the highly competitive German Program for Transatlantic Encounters. The German-American Society of Omaha, which evidences the high degree of German heritage in our city, state, and region, sponsors an annual scholarship and welcomes our students at their events.
