German

The Department of International Languages is pleased to offer a new Certificate in German Language and Culture. German is one of the world's influential languages, and one of the most widely spoken first languages in Europe.

The certificate is designed to develop both a breadth of knowledge about German culture, and basic language fluency. It includes ENGL 100, four German language classes, a German culture course taught in English, and four approved elective courses that students may choose from other disciplines. The certificate can be completed in about two years of part-time study, and we envision you using it as a way to build a foundation for further language learning via self-study or study abroad; as a stand-alone certificate you can take for your own delight in learning; or as an "add on" to your Bachelor's degree in any discipline.

The program details are available in the German program section of the Undergraduate Calendar.

International Experience
We can connect you to opportunities available for students who wish to gain international experience in Germany. Also visit the UR International website for more information and further opportunities.
