Bachelor of Arts in German

A German degree can prepare you for many different careers — in art, design, education, law, finance, journalism, human resource management, manufacturing, global supply chain management, and more. 

German immigrants have made an important impact in the Midwest, and due to the car and other industries, there continues to be a strong German presence in the area. As the European Union's strongest economy, Germany has also been central to the environmental and human rights movements, as well as a hub for artistic innovation.
