The department thus aims at training future scholars of German language and literature, as well as cultivating men and women of talent and ability who are able to rise up to the challenges of the global communications era. With these two goals in mind, the department provides students with a curriculum that balances the need for practical German language skills (conversation practice with the aid of audio-visual equipment, writing, reading comprehension exercises) with training in the academic subjects of German linguistics and literature (research on classical literature, various genres of German literature of the different periods, modern German linguistic theories).
