The German Program at UVM provides comprehensive instruction in German language, culture and literature. The curriculum reflects a commitment to both the traditions of literary studies in German and to new developments in the field. Small classes emphasize student participation and use of the target language.
Areas of particular strength include the Age of Goethe and Romanticism; the 19th and 20th centuries; Austrian literature; exile literature; German folklore and proverbs; and Holocaust film and literature.
