Department of German

The study of second language and culture is a cornerstone of education in today’s international world. It teaches intercultural competence by increasing students’ understanding of their own backgrounds and their sensitivity for other traditions and values. Knowledge of a second language and culture brings obvious competitive advantages in careers with an international dimension. As a liberal arts discipline, the study of language improves analytic-conceptual and communication skills necessary for all professional careers. Enhanced with appropriate additional course work, a major in German serves as a foundation for professional training in such subjects as business, law, politics, and medicine, as well as the media and communication industry. Students with a BA in German compete well in nontechnical fields for jobs requiring a bachelor’s degree. For more information on the major, the minor, the certificate, and the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, see www.german.pitt.edu.
