German Program

Why German?

Wrapped Reichstag The German-speaking world has been home to Mozart and Bach, Nietzsche and Heidegger, Klimt and Klee, Einstein and Bohr.  Germany today is the strongest economy in Europe, has one of the fastest growing independent art scenes (in Berlin), and is a worldwide research leader in fields from renewable energy to nanotechnology.

German is a language that is excellent preparation for traveling in Europe, as 38% of European citizens say they can converse in German. Last but not least, German is the most commonly used language on the internet after English. If you'd like to learn more about German at Montclair State, please contact Thomas Herold.

The German program offers a major (36 credits) and a minor (18 credits). Course offerings include language courses on all levels, as well as German film, culture, and literature courses both in German and English. The German Club provides a variety of opportunities for students to participate in cultural events, German Film Series, and other outings such as the weekly Stammtisch . Through the Montclair-Graz exchange, students have the opportunity to study in Austria.
