Welcome to Germanic and Slavic Studies

Becoming a proficient speaker of another language can benefit you in many ways: it gives you a deeper understanding of other cultures, improves intellectual focus and academic performance in general, and opens up exciting and rewarding employment opportunities.

The Department of Germanic & Slavic Studies affords you the opportunity to work closely with dedicated faculty mentors. We offer majors in German and Russian; dual degree programs in German and World Language Education and German and Engineering (pending final approval); a German minor and Russian minor; and study abroad and internship opportunities.
