The Bachelor of Arts in German Literature, Culture and Translation provides instruction designed to develop competence in oral and written communication; insights into language form, usage and meaning; and knowledge of German literature, cultural history and contemporary issues. Additionally, students will be introduced to basic skills in German to English translation. The flexibility of the major makes it easy to combine with a second major such as History, International Studies, Political Science or another foreign language. Combined with the Education minor, the German major leads to multi-age (K–12) teacher licensure in Ohio. Majors traditionally pursue a liberal arts program, which can be used as a stepping-stone to advanced study or professional preparation in fields such as engineering, international business, medicine and law.
