Express your ideas and identity in German from day 1. Luther's German courses allow you to explore your home culture in relation to the cultures of the German-speaking world. You won’t just learn to speak German, you'll develop your identity as a citizen of the world.
German opens doors. Speaking German expands your job possibilities and makes you attractive for many employers. Plus, our course offerings are flexible so it's possible to combine German with another major or even complete the major even if you don't start until your sophomore year.
Look forward to a semester abroad in Germany with Luther faculty. Open to all students of German at Luther, the Münster Program allows students to live with host families, become part of German culture, and travel as a group and independently.
Our courses are more than learning about grammar, conjugating verbs, and studying vocabulary. They also incorporate contemporary culture, student interests, and questions that you have about your place in the world.
