The German Program not only provides students with excellent language training, but also acquaints them with the achievements and the values expressed by great figures from the German-speaking areas of Europe, whose contributions to western culture have been enormous in such fields as philosophy, the sciences, social reforms, literature, and music. While the program provides an enriching experience for the mind and for the spirit, its major aim is to prepare students for gainful employment in many different fields in which they can use their acquired skills. To this end, the German Program tries to prepare well-rounded graduates proficient in the German language, well-informed about current social, political, and literary trends in Germany and other German-speaking countries, as well as schooled in humanistic thinking.
