German Language and Literature
The German major at Earlham offers many opportunities for collaborative learning, student-faculty research and off-campus study. Students may also choose to live in a German-speaking country, either for a semester in the Germany/Austria Program, or the May term in Berlin. Many of our majors, both graduates and undergraduates, receive internships, scholarships or fellowships to work or study in German-speaking countries.
German majors and minors often combine their work with study of another discipline. Past graduates double-majored in German and Psychology, Religion, Economics, or International Studies. Combining German with another field has proven invaluable to graduates as they have pursued further study or entered a profession. Recent graduates now work in the arts, information science, business education, journalism, psychology, the airline industry, translating and language testing.
