Why Study German?

German is the native language of over 100 million people. It is one of the ten major languages of the world. It is spoken not only in Germany and Austria, but in Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, and parts of northern Italy, eastern Belgium and eastern France. German speakers have made major and lasting contributions to commerce, science, technology, religion, psychology, music, literature, and many other fields.

The German Program at The University of Alabama has an active German Club, a German House Living/Learning community, and numerous study abroad opportunities. The German Program offers small classes and individual attention, a range of scholarships, and the only German graduate program in the state. The University Scholars Program allows students to obtain BA and MA degrees in five years instead of the usual six.

German majors obtain jobs not only in teaching and translating, but also in many other fields of business and government. There are over 1200 German companies in the Southeastern United States, and many actively recruit German speakers. Recent and ongoing German investment in Alabama alone totals more than four billion dollars. Our German majors also can and do pursue graduate degrees, they also attend law school, business school, and medical school.

In collaboration with the College of Engineering students who are interested in Engineering and German may combine their interests and apply to the prestigious program Two Steps Ahead: International German Student Exchange Program. This program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to experience state-of-the-art automotive engineering technology and exposure to the high-tech environment in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, home to Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bosch, and ZF. In addition to technical knowledge, students will acquire along the way advanced German language and cultural skills to make them more successful in multinational companies.

West Chester and Millersville Universities launched a new combined graduate degree program, the Master of Arts in Languages and Cultures in German, in Fall 2014. This single degree program is presented by both language departments in collaboration and coordination to facilitate the prompt and successful completion of the students’ coursework, as meaningfully and efficiently as possible. The 11 courses of the 33-credit degree program may be completed in from 2-5 years.

The program contains three required core seminars totaling 9 credits to be taken by all students enrolled for the degree program: L[A]NC 501 on linguistics, L[A]NC 502 on interpretive strategies, and L[A]NC 503 on cultural studies. These seminars will all be offered each academic calendar year, shared by both schools, and will be taught online, to allow students in all three languages to study and work together.

Additionally there is a general curriculum of 12 semester hours in German, which includes courses in communicative proficiencies and cultural competencies.

Courses may be offered in all six academic sessions of each calendar year, including both semesters, the three summer sessions, and the winter session.

To complete the master’s degree experience, students may choose up to 12 semester credit hours from elective options, in accord with their experience, needs, and future professional career plans. These may include courses in other fields such as nursing, marketing, criminal justice, etc., study abroad, an internship, or courses in pedagogy, or selected courses from the PA K-12 Graduate Certification in German curriculum. The elective courses may also include all 12 credits in German or another program language (French or Spanish) at the graduate level.

Exit requirements for all students are uniform, an exit capstone project of a specialized written and oral exam, or a research project, or a portfolio of three projects, defended at an oral exam with the faculty.

Internships

The Department of Languages and Cultures offers a three, six, nine or twelve credit-hour internship to junior or senior majors and minors in languages or linguistics and to graduate students in French, German and Spanish who wish to enhance their study of a world language in communication, culture, and linguistics with an educational experience directly in the workplace, either in the United States or abroad.

Interns are expected to engage in written and oral experience in the studied language on a regular basis. Internships help students test and develop their skills of expression and communication in the world language or in English, if the internship involves the Teaching of English as a Second Language or English linguistics. Internships may be salaried, but unpaid or volunteer positions also qualify.

Students who seek to pursue this type of elective credit-bearing on-the-job experience by teaching a world language, Teaching English as a Second Language or by working for a company that conducts business in one of our languages or in areas related to English linguistics should contact their advisor to review information regarding job search, company contacts, contractual procedures and semester credit evaluation and approval. Graduate level LAN 525 internships may be arranged as the elective component of the Master of Arts in Languages and Cultures, for up to 12 credits.
