Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

The German program at Norwich offers instruction in German language, culture and literature. The minor in German consists of six courses at the intermediate level or higher. Beginning and intermediate German courses focus on building a solid foundation in the language, while courses beyond the intermediate level offer a broad overview of German (and Austrian and Swiss) cultural history, literature, business practices, and cinema. The academic program is augmented by extra-curricular activities that include weekly film viewings, German table lunches, peer tutoring, and the German Club. Students are also encouraged to study abroad. Norwich maintains a student exchange with campuses of the German military university, Die Universität der Bundeswehr, in Hamburg and Munich. Students may also study for a semester at CityLab, Norwich's own program in Berlin. The foreign language placement test is required before the student registers for a first course in the program.

Our program aims to provide students with a firm foundation in spoken and written German, an overview of German political, cultural and literary history, and firsthand knowledge of today's German-speaking world.
