Students in their junior year who have taken two years of college German or the equivalent may participate in the Cologne Exchange Program. Students study directly at the University of Cologne and may choose from a wide variety of academic courses. Coursework taken abroad may be applicable to the German major or minor; please consult the department for more information.
International Economics and Business
Those students wishing to pursue a career in language with a focus on international economics or business should combine their study of a particular country and language with a background in economics. If students are majoring in German and minoring in economics, they should take GERMN 305 , GERMN 310 , GERMN 325 , and GERMN 360 as part of their requirements. Students may also select a double major in these two disciplines. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad and to complete an internship either abroad or with a company engaged in international trade. For economics courses that complement a German major or minor, see the course of study described under International Managerial Economics in the “Economics ” section of this Bulletin.
