University Majors

University of California, Santa Cruz
German Studies B.A.

German studies is a transnational major that deals with the various German-speaking regions of central Europe. Whether one thinks of philosophy, music, art, education, religion, or political and social history, German culture has excercised a profound and often decisive influence on Europe. Some of the most important ideological debates in Western culture have arisen in the German-speaking area, and changes in German cullture and society have sometimes had devastating effects on world history. Events and political developments of recent years--such as the unification of East and West Germany and the emergence of the German-speaking region of Europe as a major player in world affairs--have had important impacts. A German studies major provides students with an intellectually diverse program --covering history, history of art and visual culture, literature, and philosophy-- in which students and faculty come together in exciting and demanding pursuits.
