German - Minor

The ability to speak, read, write, and understand another language is increasingly valuable in today's world. A German minor is an excellent complement to virtually any major. UW-Superior's German program introduces students to the German language and the culture of the German-speaking nations. Courses enable students to lay the groundwork for fluency in German and to enhance practical language skills for specific career purposes.

Students also may create an Individualized Major in German Studies by adding a study abroad experience. This program includes a special study abroad opportunity offered in conjunction with UW-Superior's cooperating institution in Oldenburg, Germany.

The German Program is taught by Dr. Timothy Crow who has studied at the University of Cologne in Germany and who has published on various aspects of German language and culture.
