At Penn State, German majors and minors enjoy the advantage of a small program with a lot of personal attention and individual contact with faculty. Many of our students combine German with another major or minor; our different degree options (B.A. and B.S.) allow for various flexible paths to degree. Majors are strongly encouraged to participate in a semester or summer study abroad program in Germany or Austria. All students are encouraged to attend co-curricular and extracurricular events.
