Your German mentors will help you catch the spirit of learning the language while experiencing the culture of Germany. First, they’ll find the best resources for you on-campus: German Club, the German International House (Max Kade) and the national German honor society. They’ll then help you set your sites on being a language counselor for Concordia Language Village’s German village, Waldsee, or traveling abroad for a week, month, semester or year.

Biology and German Major; Chemistry Minor
My experience with the German department at Concordia was great! Through the German department, I was able to study abroad in Germany and have not left since. After my graduation from Concordia, I received a Fulbright scholarship to conduct a research project in Germany and have stayed to complete my PhD.

German & Art Major
I had the opportunity to study abroad through the German Department. I chose to study in Mainz, Germany, because it's a city with a rich printmaking and bookmaking history. Both disciplines, German and Art, greatly influenced one another -- and that's the appeal of an interdisciplinary education.
