German is an important language, and with more than 100 million speakers, and more inhabitants of the European Union speak German as their first language than any other. It is the sole official language of Austria and Germany and one of the official languages in Belgium, Italy (South Tyrol), Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. German is a major vehicle of culture and knowledge, and no study of the history of the world in the twentieth first century is complete without detailed consideration of the German-speaking countries and their inhabitants. We offer 3 years of German language study: First year elementary German (1-3); second-year intermediate German (4-5); and third-year advanced German conversation and composition. We also offer a summer Travel-Study Program in Berlin.
