Career Goals for German Majors
The German Department provides a strong liberal arts education with an international and intercultural emphasis. With this background, German majors have been successful in a broad variety of professional and academic careers.
Recent majors and double-majors have excelled in such areas as:
- International education
- International affairs
- Medicine and bio-medical research
- Teaching at all grades
- Academic administration
- Careers in finance and banking
- The automotive industry
- A variety of consulting professions
- Art dealing and auctioneering
The German major deliberately prepares students to become life-long, flexible learners with a global perspective, excellent writing and analytical skills, and the knowledge of navigating and thriving on cultural difference that is essential in today's world.
In order to facilitate communication between current students contemplating career choices and opportunities, the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics developed a targeted, web-based career resource, the Faculty of Languages and Linguistics Alumni Network (FLLAN). It is a searchable database of alumni who are willing to serve as resource people for job-searching students.
