About German

Why study German at Rutgers? The richness of our offerings outside of the classroom are unparalleled! At Rutgers you can:

The German major provides students with linguistic proficiency and a broad knowledge of the literatures and cultures of German-speaking countries. You’ll take courses like “Marx, Nietzche, Freud” and “Fairy Tales Then and Now” (two of our most popular). The major can be completed by combining study of the literatures and cultures of German-speaking countries with other fields such as history, political science, European studies, music, art history, philosophy, religion, and Jewish studies), exploring the rich and often vexed history of things German from diverse perspectives.
