Expand your mind and your global view. Complement your major with a German minor, and make yourself more marketable in your career. German is an official language in nearly 10 countries, and students with foreign language knowledge are some of the highest-paid liberal arts graduates. Plus, study abroad opportunities abound. So what are you waiting for? Add this minor to give yourself an edge in any field. Note that all incoming students enrolling in a foreign language class with prior experience in that language will be required to take a placement exam to determine the level they should begin.
