DESCRIPTION: The Bachelor of Arts in German provides instruction designed to develop competence in oral and written communication; insights into language form, usage and meaning; and knowledge of German literature, cultural history and contemporary issues. The flexibility of the major makes it easy to combine with a second major such as History, International Studies, Political Science or another foreign language. Combined with the Education minor, the German major leads to multi-age (K–12) teacher licensure in Ohio. Majors traditionally pursue a liberal arts program, which can be used as a stepping-stone to advanced study or professional preparation in fields such as engineering, international business, medicine and law.
