German at the University of Montana
Welcome to the German Section of the Department of World Languages and Cultures! If you’re thinking of majoring or minoring in German or just taking classes with us, German is a great way to connect to all kinds of interests you may already have. Both English and German are Germanic languages and the two share much in common. You can probably figure out what a “Haus” and “Garten” are among lots of similar words. German is an exciting way to learn and experience a huge variety of things about Europe, about the world, and maybe even your own family. (The most common cultural heritage in the U.S. is German.) Travel, history, politics, economy, the environment, and the creative worlds of art, literature, music, and film… these are just some of the many topics we cover in our courses.
