From Kant to Kafka and Gauss to Planck, from the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century to alternative energy development in the 21st, Germany has produced some of the world's most influential and enduring contributions to literature, philosophy, science, mathematics and other fields. Language, Literature, and More The German curriculum, under the Modern Languages department, promotes mastery of spoken and written German through courses from elementary through advanced, conversational and business German as well as in a range of classes such as Culture and Civilization, a survey of German literature, and the New German Cinema. With German a valuable language to master both for business and academic pursuits, many students combine their interest in German with other majors such as political science, international studies, business and economics, biology, math or religious studies. Beyond the Classroom On campus, you can practice everyday conversation at the regular Deutscher Mittagessen German lunch table or Kaffee und Kuchen Stunde ("coffee and cake") social gatherings. You also can join the German club to show your enthusiasm for all things Deutsch. And a treat for cinema lovers are the German movie nights, where students enjoy award-winning films.
