About the Department

The Department of German and Russian Studies was established in 2006 and provides students with opportunities to study the language, literature, cinema and culture of German-speaking Europe and Russia.

America has many long-established social and cultural ties with the nations of the German-speaking world: Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Today, a knowledge of German has become important for anyone engaged in international commerce, research and technology. The Department offers a Major in German, a Minor in German, and a Minor in German Studies.

The Russian Studies program offers a multidisciplinary course of study, which combines the Russian language with courses related to Russian civilization, culture, history, and politics. A primary goal is to provide an understanding of the relationship between the United States and Russia in the aftermath of the Cold War.  The Department offers a Minor in Russian Studies.
