German Program  



Willkommen beim Deutschprogramm am Aquinas College!

"He who does not know foreign languages does not know anything about his own." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


German – the most widely-spoken language in Europe – is the leading language of science, literature, art, music, philosophy and history, and Germany’s economy is the largest one in the European Union.

Whether you have German ancestry, want to learn more about the German languages and culture, and other German-speaking countries in Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg), learn about the German literature, traditions, contemporary German film, and business; or immerse yourself in one of our four German Study Abroad Programs in Tübingen, Lüneburg, Freiburg, and Mayen – the Aquinas German Program is here to answer your questions and meet your needs.


For more information please contact Dr. Katharina Häusler-Gross at, call (616) 632-2122, or stop by my office in AB 9C in the Department of World Languages.
