The German Studies program at Mount Allison provides you with a well-rounded introduction to German language and Germanic culture.
Our program consists of courses in language, literature, and culture and is organized in such a fashion that it can accommodate absolute beginners, but also students with previous knowledge of German.
Complementing the on-campus German program are numerous study and work abroad possibilities, which provide students with opportunity to travel, study, and live in German-speaking countries.
German is available as a minor only.
Please contact the program advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
