The Department requires majors and encourages other students to pursue a significant full-immersion language experience.

Students are encouraged to participate in Georgetown University’s five-week Summer Program at Trier University. Students take classes offered at the University of Trier, an institution with which Georgetown’s Department of German has partnered for nearly half a century. Courses are available for language-learners who have completed at least one year (6 credits) of German and exposure to German language and culture is maximized by living with a German family for the duration of the program.
