What can a German degree do for you?

Are you intrigued by German language, history and culture? Do you see yourself as a future teacher, foreign diplomat, business executive or interpreter?

Adding courses in international studies, business, history, education or one of our interdisciplinary minors gives you plenty of exciting career options.

And there’s nothing like living in a German-speaking country to learn the language inside and out and boost your confidence and cultural understanding. We can help you make that happen!

Inside German Studies

Why earn a German degree at a liberal arts college like Susquehanna University?

Because we’ll not only immerse you in the language and culture but also provide a broad background across many subjects, making you a valuable asset to employers looking for good communicators with global awareness.

In addition to your language courses, you also might:

  • Delve into German theatre and film, literature and best business practices.
  • Join the German Club and share a meal at the Modern Language Tables while speaking only in German.
  • Learn about German history and culture at museums in New York City and Washington, D.C.
  • Enjoy an exciting semester in a German city through our Global Opportunities (GO) program.

Once you’ve earned your degree, you can teach, become an interpreter or translator, enter the travel industry, or work for a multinational company or non-government organization—as just a few examples!

Germany’s economy is one of the strongest in Europe, and German is one of three official languages of the European Union. That creates lots of career opportunities for students in the global marketplace, both here in the U.S. or abroad.
