Program Information

School:Dalhousie University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts & Social Science
Field of Study:German Language and Literature
Description:Gain a solid understanding of one of the world's most widely-spoken languages and its influences on modern thinking. Combine German studies with other programs, such as Environment, Sustainability, and Society (ESS) or Political Science—and find out how the writings of Freud, Nietzsche, Marx, Hegel, Goethe, and Schiller are still relevant to today’s complex social problems.
Courses in Dal's department of German focus on three areas: language acquisition, literature, and philsophy or thought. But you'll learn more than grammar in a German language course. In fact, many profs incorporate literature and philosophy as language teaching tools, especially in upper-year courses.
