Studying German at Marquette develops your ability to speak, read, understand and write in German, immersing yourself in the dramatic story of German literature and history, culture and contemporary German society. Recent courses have explored the topic of witness and resistance in German literature, the works of Franz Kafka, and the revolutionary aspects of art and music in the Romantic era. As a second major, German offers a unique way of enlarging pre-professional or scientific studies, especially for those who plan careers in law, medicine, business, government and education.

In addition to offering the German major, the faculty also support students preparing for secondary teaching, as well as a popular minor in German which consists of eighteen credit hours above the intermediate language level.
