Majors and Programs
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: World Languages and Cultures: German
Iowa State provides you with the opportunity to learn Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Latin, and classical Greek. You may also take professional communication courses in modern world languages or courses in classical studies. Study abroad programs are available in France, Germany, Greece, Russia, Spain, and Latin America, either as direct programs or in cooperation with other colleges at ISU and the Study Abroad Office. If your first major is in the colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Business, or Engineering, you may choose to take advantage of the department’s second major concentration in Languages and Cultures for Professions (LCP), which is designed to provide training in professional communication in the target language, internships, and study abroad. All of our majors and minors will increase your understanding of contemporary political, social, and cultural issues in countries and regions in which the target language is spoken. You may also pursue teacher licensure in our major language concentrations (French, German, and Spanish). Studying world languages and cultures at Iowa State can complement a primary major in many professional fields including agriculture, business, and engineering, or better prepare you for a career in education, criminal justice, foreign service, journalism, the military, psychology and social services, or the Peace Corps. The department will work with you to design a major or minor, including study abroad, that fits your interests and educational goals.
