Minor in German

An important language closely related to English, German is the tongue of America’s third largest trade partner, of much scientific research, and of international diplomacy. It is also the language of music’s “3B’s” (plus Wagner, Mozart, and Mendelssohn), of Goethe, Marx, Einstein, Kant, and Freud, spoken not only in Germany, but also in Austria and Switzerland. As such, German is a staple of any sound general education, a language that will enhance a career and enrich personal pleasure and travel.
