Department Chair: Suzuko Knott

The German studies department at Connecticut College offers a flexible program designed to meet the intellectual needs of a diverse student body. Encountering a foreign culture begins where it is most recognizably foreign, in its language, but we believe it should also extend to include a knowledge of the traditions and history that make the other culture foreign to us.

Our department offers a range of courses in German and English that explore literature and culture in ways that open up disciplinary boundaries and prepare students to be active participants in an emerging global society.
