Professor Behrmann's Story
A truly outstanding and devoted educator, Nicola Behrmann stands out among junior faculty as someone who has served in a number of extremely demanding and time-consuming administrative positions: Director of the Rutgers in Berlin Summer Program and Undergraduate Director of German.
Student response to Professor Behrmann’s teaching has been overwhelmingly positive. Those in her Fairy Tales course, for example, noted they “felt more cultured,” that the professor encouraged “critical thinking” while “making it fun,” and enabling students “to look at the world [from] the perspective of a child and an adult at the same time.”
Said one student reviewer: “Professor Behrmann has taught me to really focus on reading the text thoroughly, critically, and with a new lens devoted to intense literary study that will prove invaluable as I move forward in my college career.”
