The German Studies program at Mount Allison provides you with a well-rounded introduction to German language and Germanic culture.

Our program consists of courses in language, literature, and culture and is organized in such a fashion that it can accommodate absolute beginners, but also students with previous knowledge of German.

Complementing the on-campus German program are numerous study and work abroad possibilities, which provide students with opportunity to travel, study, and live in German-speaking countries.


German is available as a minor only.
