Language Concentration: German

Spoken by about 100 Million people worldwide, German is the language of the strongest economy in the European Union and a critical language in international business. German also has a strong history of being the primary language of science and engineering, and Germany continues to be a leader in numerous disciplines in the sciences, engineering, and international affairs. Graduates of the Georgia Tech German Program regularly place into highly prestigious jobs in the global workplace.

The German Program at the School of Modern Languages provides an integrative academic experience that connects linguistic precision and intercultural competence with applied contexts across disciplines. Our faculty-led study abroad, academic exchanges, and internships in the German-speaking world allow students to make German an integral part of their career path. Students can study advanced language acquisition, intercultural communication, cultural history, race and gender studies, technology, sustainability, film, digital media, and literature.
