The University of Kansas offers our undergraduate students a diverse and challenging program in the language and culture of German-speaking Europe, including literature, the arts, history, business, and politics.  With a new undergraduate German Studies curriculum implemented in fall 2013, our program is characterized by personalized advising, interdisciplinary flexibility, co-curricular activities, and opportunities to conduct independent research and to study and undertake internships abroad.  The relatively small size of our classes ensures that students participate actively in classroom learning and receive ample attention from their instructors.
