Welcome! Willkommen! Добро пожаловать!

Established in August 2006, the Department of German and Slavic Studies is the youngest department in the School of Languages, Cultures, and World Affairs. Our faculty consists of five full-time roster faculty and several adjunct instructors of German and Russian. Both programs offer a full range of extra-curricular activities in which students and faculty participate. We encourage you to explore the reasons for studying these languages, and please talk with us about the numerous opportunities we offer.
