Through focusing on a variety of textual materials on such topics as identity and multiculturalism, migration and immigration, matters of social justice for women and minorities in modern and contemporary Germany, Austria, and German-speaking Switzerland, students will expand their skills in understanding and using the German language in a broad variety of cultural contexts. Students will receive advanced training of the four skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing). Language level and subsequent course placement will be determined by the Department of Languages & Literary Studies. [H]
