The Minor in German Studies

The minor in German Studies is a valuable complement to the academic portfolio of a student pursuing any major, who wishes to add an international dimension to their academic and professional profile. When you supplement your degree with a German Studies minor, you are increasing your professional marketability with a great number of international and domestic employers who have connections to or value the German-speaking cultures. As a student in the German Studies minor, you have access to grant-supported study abroad experiences and diverse extracurricular offerings in the KSU German Studies program.
