In today's rapidly changing world, there is intense demand for women and men who understand other cultures and can communicate in more languages than their own. They know that a new language is an open door into very different ways of living and understanding the world.


Studying German at Marquette will help you gain the skills to communicate well with native speakers and let you immerse yourself in the life, civilization, film, literature, music and history of today's Germany. Germany is a nation at the heart of Western thought, culture, science and politics, and is the center of the European economy.
